Wellington, FL – February 9, 2015 -The Ridge at Wellington's Turf Tour is travelling back to the International Polo Club Palm Beach (IPC) for its sixth week of competition. This week's events will take place on Wednesday, February 11 and Friday, February 13.  In addition to the ever-popular 1.30-1.35m classes, Wednesday will offer low and medium schooling jumpers.  Friday will see the Grand Prix running all day in the main ring, and low and medium schooling jumpers running in the second 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 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Beginning at 8 a.m., the second ring will have low schooling jumpers, with two classes running simultaneously with open cards until noon.  Medium schooling jumpers will kick off at noon with two classes running with open cards and will run until 4:30.
