NEW THIS YEAR

After four consecutive years of attendance growth, the Polo Classic is moving to Piocho Ranch at Happy Canyon Vineyard in Santa Ynez, which offers a more spacious venue with the same smaller playing field and fast, action-packed polo. As the premier equestrian event in the Santa Ynez Valley, the 5th Annual Polo Classic is expected to draw 1,000-1,200 guests.

Two “Club” sections will be added. The Happy Canyon Vineyard Wine Club, located adjacent to the VIP area, will be exclusively for Wine Club members and their guests. Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company will host a “Mug Club” adjacent to General Admission. Each Club will offer tented table seating, buffet luncheon, and limited beer and wine.

CONTINUING THIS YEAR

VIP guests, including Patrons, Sponsors and individual VIP ticket purchasers, will once again be treated to priority parking, shuttle service, private tented seating and dining area, champagne and appetizer reception, entertainment, three-course luncheon, goody bag, silent auction, and the ever-popular hat contest. Title and Team Sponsors receive exclusive center-field box seating to view the polo matches.

The Polo Classic will continue to offer General Admission tickets with bleacher seating at an affordable $15 for adults and $5 for children. Food and beverage options will once again be expanded to include gourmet food trucks, beer, wine, sparkling wine, and soft drinks. The successful silent auction and hat contest from 2015 will also return.

At the conclusion of the featured match, an awards ceremony is conducted at midfield for guests to gather, mingle with the players, and view the presentations of the perpetual winner’s trophy, Carlos Gracida Sportsmanship Award, Best Playing String of Ponies, and Best Playing Pony.
