On Saturday the 22nd February the 9th Annual Queen’s Cup Pink Polo event was attended by the most delightful crowd of Thai HiSo’s and affluent expats to raise funds and awareness for the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer (QSCBC). Attendees couldn’t have asked for better weather, cleaner sportsmanship or more welcoming hosts – the Thai Polo and Equestrian Club.
Dr Kris and Khunying Finola Chatamra entertained the Italian and South African Ambassadors and their lovely wives – Lorenzo and Francesca Galanti and Geoff and Carole Doidge and many other VIP guests. La Familia team were the victors against second place Marengo. Thai Polo came in third after a tight match against Ethiopian Airlines.
In addition to two full polo matches, spectators enjoyed the most delicious food provided by the event‘s generous sponsors (sadly far too many to mention here), the Yorkshire Terriers Club dog show (featuring Princess Sirivannavari’s dogs), a fashion show on horseback and various activities from sponsors throughout the afternoon.
The next major polo public tournament will be the Beach Polo held on the 18th April in front of the Intercontinental Hotel Hua Hin.
Don’t miss it!!
