Lycetts International Thoroughbred Polo Championship Returns on 5 July

Three classes, live auction & £20,000 prize money

On Friday 5 July, Guards Polo Club will host the second annual Lycetts International Thoroughbred Polo Championship, showcasing Thoroughbreds' agility and temperament for polo. The event features three classes for different age groups (three, four, and five/six-year-olds) and includes an exhibition chukka to display their speed and agility. Horses will be judged on conformation, turnout, and polo agility, with £20,000 in prize money awarded across the classes and an additional £1,000 for the overall champion.

The day's schedule begins with gates opening at 2pm with free entry for spectators, the first class starting at 3pm, and the exhibition game at 5.30pm. The overall champion will be announced around 6pm. A live auction of up to 10 ponies will follow the classes, and a BBQ will be served at the Clubhouse, please click here with an RSVP so the Club has an idea of numbers.

Lycetts’ Piers Plunket commented, “This event not only highlights the versatility and resilience of thoroughbreds, it strengthens the bond between the racing and polo communities. Lycetts is committed to supporting the continued growth of this remarkable event, celebrating the incredible journey of these equine athletes”.
