Wellington, FL – February 10, 2014 – Riders will once again gather on the pristine polo fields of the International Polo Club Palm Beach this Wednesday and Friday, but more is at stake than the class earnings. The Ridge at Wellington is thrilled to announce that the International Polo Club has generously sponsored a one-year membership to their facilities for the Leading Rider Bonus. Time is running out to get your entries in for the sixth week of The Ridge at Wellington’s Turf Tour, with events taking place Wednesday, February 12 and Friday, February 14, 2014. The Leading Rider Bonus is currently wide open, with no determined leader to date. This event is one of the highlights of Wellington’s winter circuit with $4,000 up for grabs this Wednesday, as well as an additional $15,000 in prize money for Friday’s 1.40m Invitational Grand Prix.

The Leading Rider of the Wellington Turf Tour Grand Prix Series will gain access to one of the most highly sought after, and beautiful clubs in the nation. The club was created by players for players, and was born out of the dream to build a facility to showcase the incredible skills of the ponies and players that dominate the sport. The arenas of play include three state-of-the-art playing fields and a stick and ball field.

Other amenities include the Mallet Grille, The 7th Chukker, Spa and Fitness Center, Croquet Lawn, Tennis Courts, the Sports House, the Polo Library and numerous retail outlets with exclusive merchandise. Members and their guests will have the luxury of enjoying the panoramic views of the action from field side box seats or lawn and terrace seating. Sponsors and fans convene at The Winners Circle to congratulate the players during the awards presentation following the games. Gourmet brunches, après polo celebrations and the prerequisite charitable events will take place in the climate controlled Grand Marquee, the most sought-after Sunday brunch in town.

This Wednesday and Friday, IPC will welcome attendees to the sixth of an 11-week series filled with top-tier competitors, horses and nearly $200,000 in prize money. Get your entries in now by clicking here. This is a rare opportunity for jumper riders to compete on the beautiful turf usually reserved for polo, and over an Eric Hasbrouck designed course. With the Leading Rider still undetermined, now is the time to act and ride for the bonus!

The event is approaching quickly, so riders should get their entries in to avoid post-entry fees. The stakes are increasing each week as top riders, amateur and professional, vie for their invitation into the $24,750 Invitational Grand Prix Series Finale Saturday, March 22, 2014, and the newly announced Leading Rider Bonus.

Meadowbrook Horse Transport will provide transportation to and from the horse show and other locations throughout Wellington for both the Wednesday and Friday events.
