saratoga-polo.jpgSaratoga Springs, N.Y. - Move over boys, the women are taking over Saratoga Polo! This Friday, July 19th and Sunday, July 21st, Saratoga Polo Association once again will be spotlighting some of the best women's polo players as Alex and Ani presents Women's Week featuring the Veuve Clicquot Women's Challenge. "The four teams - Banbury Cross, Bloomfield Farms, Bluestone Farms Team Estrella, and Morgan Stanley bring some of the most intense and exciting play to Whitney Field this year, " said Polo Manager Cuko Escapite, "Saratoga is unique in the polo world with such a long standing women's tournament, and to have sponsors like Alex and Ani and Veuve Clicquot who support this fast growing sport is amazing." Tiffany Busch will be returning this year for Banbury Cross. If you remember the 2012 season, it was an overtime sudden death battle where Tiffany defeated Sunny Hale, the highest rated women's polo player in history. "It's pretty awesome to have the calibre of players like Tiffany to keep returning to Saratoga", said Jim Rossi, the Managing Partner of Saratoga Polo, "we are extremely proud of presenting world class polo, and especially proud to continue featuring the women's tournament." The Clubhouse will feature the Alex and Ani Bangle Bar at both matches, and Sunday will bring Whitney Cooper Fashions, and the Saratoga Horseworks Best Playing Pony Award, along with a Veuve Clicquot Grand Dame Sabrage.
