Show Pony

| September 28, 2015 | Parties

THE PARTY Once the June Gloom lifted, it was a quintessentially sunny San Diego afternoon for Opening Day of the San Diego Polo Club. Scores of fashionable fans set to out Modern Luxury S.D.’s VIP tent, where Tenfold and Lounge Appeal created a chic setting. Standout sponsors of the afternoon included Willis Allen Real Estate, which has deep family connections to the elite sport. THE GUESTS Renowned biologist and genome mastermind J. Craig Venter pitched the first ball into play, while spectators like actor Scott Eastwood and Top Chef contestant Brian Malarkey cheered on. THE HIGHLIGHTS The adored divot stomp brought everyone out to the field for schmoozing and Veuve Clicquot sipping. Team Von Fuerstenberg took home the title and gift bags from Modern Luxury S.D. containing goodies from the venerable Ascot Shop of La Jolla. The celebration didn’t stop when the ponies left the field—at the 7th Chukker afterparty, DJ Here, in conjunction with the smoldering new downtown nightclub Omnia, kept everyone in full-gallop party mode. Game on. –Photography by JDixx
