Epic polo matches were won by children and adult players while families bonded over the activities
Families bond best over sharing moments and polo is certainly a fun way to get that done. When Colts Polo & Riding School, along with St. Regis Hotels & Resorts and the Argentine Embassy in Singapore, organised the inaugural St. Regis Polo Generations 2019 in late November at the Singapore Turf Club Riding Centre, over 500 guests turned up.
On this Saturday afternoon, the Colts Cup for children and the St. Regis Polo Generations Cup for children and parents took place so that families can enjoy the sport together over a good game. The audience had their own fun engagements too, with the St. Regis Family Traditions Corner featuring children’s activities such as polo art paintings and cookie decorations guided by pastry chefs from The St. Regis Singapore. As with all carnivals, popcorn and rolled ice-cream were part of the treats. VIP guests savoured St. Regis’ signature Afternoon Tea while cheering for the exciting matches in the arena.
When evening came, the exhilarating climax came in the form of The Ambassador’s Cup, a high-goal Cup tournament played by professionals, as guests and diplomats including His Excellency Federico Barttfeld, the Argentinian Ambassador to Singapore enjoyed Argentinian asado (barbecued beef) and sipped on champagne as well as Argentinian wines. Organised in aid of Viva Foundation for Children with Cancer, the event raised awareness for the organisation as well as funds through a raffle draw and a silent auction. Jennifer Yeo, founder and chairman of Viva Foundation for Children with Cancer, presented a certificate of appreciation to the Furlongs on behalf of the foundation.
