A different day at Sarasota Polo Club

Remember the Robert A. Uihlein Jr. Memorial Cup Finals last year at Lakewood Ranch?

Frankly, they were miserable. It was cold, windy, and wet. The tourney had to be switched to a different field because of drainage problems.

Those problems have all been fixed. Polo ponies were running on the main field, and the weather was spectacular. Brilliant clear sky, nice breeze. Perfect.

For the record, the Regent team won the finals.

Finishing second was Ten Oaks Polo, and third was High Points, said club manager Maggie Mitchell.

Most valuable player was Buck Schott.

The best playing pony award went to "Pumpkin," ridden by Josh Shelton.
