Eight guys on horseback are sprinting up and down a field, whacking a hard plastic ball at speeds of up to 100 miles an hour.
Half are in black and white, the other half dark blue. They’re all wearing, well... polos.
It’s the opening of the 2017 Palm Beach polo season.
The first game of the Herbie Pennell Cup pitted Mount Brilliant of Kentucky against Wellington’s own Villa del Lago. The team is led by 31 year-old Argentine sensation Hilario Ulloa.
They call this high-goal polo. This is big leagues.
