We are very excited for the Second Annual Equine Salute Invitational benefitting the Gracida Foundation at the stately Santa Rita Polo Farm. In 2014, Carlos Gracida, one of the most highly skilled players in the history of polo, died in a tragic polo accident. Known throughout the world as “the best polo player ever,” his accomplishments are legendary in “The Sport of Kings.” To honor is memory and legacy of the family, his sons Carlo and Mariano created The Gracida Legacy Foundation. This event is very moving and personal to the polo world. And will be a fantastic day of polo and celebration of life and family. For tickets, information, and the history of the Gracida family, please visit The Gracida Legacy Foundation.
For our what to wear moment, we shopped J. McLaughlin, one of the sponsors. Inspired by the classical design of the invitation, we decided on the crisp black and white pallette. Hats are optional but always stylish for spectating. Wedges or thick heeled sandals are a must for maneuvering the grass and stomping the divots, a traditional half time activity. Shades and statement earring just complete the chicest looks.
