    A Horse dramatically died at Bridgehampton Polo Saturday as Chris Del Gatto’s team Circa and Nacho Figueras’ squad faced off in front of the VIP crowds. Spies said that a $100,000 polo pony collapsed during play beneath a Circa rider.
    After the first two weekends of polo were rained out, the latest incident added even more drama to the well-heeled event that was taken over this year by Figueras and Peter Brant, who are aiming to usher in a more exclusive era.
    “The horse suddenly dropped,†a spy told us. “Luckily the rider managed to jump off, and was OK. Everyone was very upset. What happened can be dangerous, and it’s lucky no one was hurt.â€

    An event rep confirmed the incident, saying: “Polo is an extreme sport, and the horses are extreme athletes. The care and well-being of these horses is the most important part of polo to all involved in the sport. There is always a chance of injury to either horse or rider, as in all equestrian disciplines. There is always a vet on-site . . . there were two on this particular day.†Sources said the horse was 11 years old and died of a heart attack.
    “It was a tough game,†Del Gatto told us. “Whenever any of us lose a horse, it’s very difficult. I don’t know a player that doesn’t love horses, and it’s not easy when we lose one. They give us their all playing a very dangerous game for both horse and rider.â€
    Circa beat Figueras’ team 12-11 at the match, where Rosanna Scotto threw out the first ball.
    The Del Gatto-Figueras polo rivalry is known to be heated. “I like to think that they call polo the sport of kings because we’re warriors on the field, but gentlemen off it,†Del Gatto said.
    The latest polo drama was buzzed about later at a Southampton Hospital gala, where guests included Del Gatto and model girlfriend Veronica Webb, Jean Shafiroff, Douglas Elliman’s Howard Lorber and Lisa Simonsen and gala chair Laura Lofaro Freeman. Rudy and Judith Giuliani were meant to attend as guests of Somers and Jonathan Farkas, but a spy told us Hizzoner couldn’t make it because he’s joined Mitt Romney on the campaign trail.

    I don't think she's conflicted at all. It's obvious to anyone (even someone as dumb as Beth) that polo ponies are mistreated on a regular basis. That doesn't make a damn bit of difference to her because being part of the Hamptons social scene is the most important thing in her pathetic life. She's not an animal activist or advocate, all she cares about is using animals to get attention for herself.

    Beth, Nacho and a dead horse. Sounds like a love triangle to me.

    Can't believe that actually came out of someone's mouth.

    So, are we assuming that Beth has the wherewithall to BE conflicted about anything? Are we assuming that there is enough active brain matter to have an opinion that hasn't been spoon fed to her by Howard? I think she uses all available viable brain cells to memorize stories for her talk show appearances.

    I live in the NYC area... it was in the upper 90's yesterday with such high humidity that we had torrential storms later in the day, with a possible funnel cloud.

    She runs half dead birds to the vet.. but a 1000 lb horse being forced to do wind sprints for an hour in 98% humidity is ok?

    What an idiot./

    Good point! Yeah horses watch the X Games and go out to hay bars with their horse peeps -- they bungee jump, they play hay-pong, they hook up with whorses -- so as Xtreme athletes, horses are really doing what they love -- they only put people on their backs because it's funny when they fall off. And horses love people. The horse calendar has a Richard Reeves day -- during which they fast. The horses wanted to put him down as it's more horsemain.

    I know, what an idiotic statement. They seem to be trying to compare the horses to human "extreme athletes", but that's totally ridiculous. A person can tell someone if they're not feeling well and refuse to compete. The poor horse doesn't have a choice.

    The horse knew what it was getting into when it chose that profession. It has no one to blame but itself.
