How much do Washingtonians love polo? Enough to drive an hour to Poolesville, Maryland, and brave the intermittent weather (one minute sunny, the next raining) for an afternoon of sipping Oasis wine and socializing with friends young and old. Many party-goers opted to bring tailgate picnics that consisted of everything from Whole Foods take-out to two-burner gas grills (finally, a good use for the H2 Hummer). Supermodel Tyra Banks was the honorary chair of the first annual Courage Cup on June 19 benefiting the Work-to-Ride Program, which teaches Philadelphia’s inner city kids to play polo. Madison Hotel Polo Pro Charlie Muldoon led Team Madison to handily defeat Team Michelob.
