Wellington, FL – March 9, 2015 –The tenth week of The Ridge at Wellington's Turf Tour will be held at the International Polo Club Palm Beach (IPC). This week's events will take place on Wednesday, March 11 and Friday, March 13.  In addition to the ever-popular 1.30-1.35m classes, Wednesday will offer low and medium schooling jumpers.  On Friday, the Turf Tour will hold the 1.40m Grand Prix on the grass, and low and medium schooling jumpers in the second grass ring.

Wednesday will have just under $5,000 in prize money up for grabs in the 1.30-1.35m jumpers, with two classes running concurrently. There will be $15,000 in prize money offered for Friday's 1.40m Grand Prix.

The Tour is a unique series designed to develop upcoming talent in both horses and riders and provide a change in venue for all riders. The series offers unrivaled hospitality with a relaxed atmosphere as a fresh experience. On Wednesday, the polo field at IPC will see horses and riders competing in 1.30-1.35m jumpers with an open card running from 8 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. The second ring will see low schooling jumpers from 8 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. and medium schooling jumpers from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Each division has two classes running concurrently with open cards.   

Friday’s events promise to be exciting, with the $15,000 1.40m Grand Prix running from 8 am through 4:30 pm on the turf field. The second ring will begin at 8 am, with two classes running concurrently at the low schooling jumper height until noon. At 12:30, medium schooling jumpers will begin, with two cards running concurrently until 4:30 pm.
