Rain Fails to Dampen the Spirits of the Fans and Players at International Polo Club Palm Beach for the 106th Arcalux US Open
This year’s polo season at International Polo Club Palm Beach has been a whirlwind of matches, celebrity sightings and social events.
Reality TV stars Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian and actor Jeffrey Donovan of Burn Notice were seen at matches at ICPC this season. Easter Sunday featured the annual Easter Egg Hunt, a hat contest and as always the half-time champagne divot stomp.
The highlight of the season was the Arcalux US Open Championships at International Polo Club Palm Beach with polo titans Facundo and Gonzalito Pieres of last years US Open Championship team Audi going toe to toe with Crab Orchard led by Polo superstar Adolfo Cambiaso.
Dark skies & pouring rain failed to dampen fans spirits or the relentless drive to victory by finely tuned team Crab Orchard. The winners dominated the match with a well orchestrated effort by patron George Rawlings, 8-goalers Julio Arrellano and Hilario Ulloa and Polo megastar 10 goaler Adolfo Cambiaso. Team Audi was rounded out by patron Marc Ganzi and Inaki LaPrida — up until the finals Audi was undefeated in the US Open tournament even edging out Crab Orchard in an earlier match.
