Sunday: Menlo hosts Polo Classic in Atherton

Celebrating its 90th year, the Menlo Polo Club will host its 3rd ExpertQuote Silicon Valley Polo Classic from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 9, at the Menlo Circus Club, 190 Park Lane in Atherton. The event is free and open to the public.

Polo is the only sport where men, women, amateurs and professionals, in partnership with some of the best-trained animals in the world, compete on the same field, at the same time, according to a Polo Club press release.

"The Menlo Polo Club is distinguished as being one of the oldest clubs in California, second only to Santa Barbara Polo Club," says Lyn Jason Cobb is president of the Menlo Polo Club. "My grandfather, William Gilmore, founded the club in 1923 and served as president until the war. My father, Mack Jason, took the reins after the war and served as the Menlo Polo Club president for 46 years. As a third generation player, it's been my pleasure to also serve as president and watch the club thrive."

As a member of the United States Polo Association, the Menlo Polo Club plays as part of the Pacific Coast Circuit. The circuit is home to 34 clubs and has more than 525 registered polo players.
