Polo Rivalry Comes To Westport — And You Can Win

There are many great sports rivalries: Yankees-Red Sox. Michigan-Ohio State. Man U-Man City.

Let’s not forget Gold’s Dragoons vs. Squadron A.

That’s a classic polo match-up. And local residents can watch the two sides battle it out Sunday, August 26 (1 p.m.) — right here at Westport’s Fairfield County Hunt Club.

Exciting polo action comes to Westport.

The full day of fun includes family activities, a polo skills demonstration, music by Green Eyed Lady, plus prizes for best ladies’ hat (a day of pampering at Kate Burton Spa) and best tailgate (a horse weathervane and cupola from Good Directions).

A great VIP lounge features cocktails, beer, a traditional Argentine asado buffet — and “06880” readers can win 2 tickets for full VIP access.

Just click “Comments” below. Pick your team; then respond in 50 words or fewer: “I’m rooting for Gold’s Dragoons (or Squadron A) because…” The deadline is 12 noon this Monday (August 20).

Decision of the judges (Dan Woog and Diana Kuen) is final. Let the games begin!

(The polo event benefits the Bridgeport Hospital Foundation’s REACH Program, an outpatient psychiatric program for children and adults. For more information and tickets, click here.)

Some people dress up to watch polo. But you can come as casually as you like.
