    Horse drama in Hamptons

    A Horse dramatically died at Bridgehampton Polo Saturday asChris Del Gatto’s team Circa andNacho 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 andPeter 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.”


    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.”
    Circa beat Figueras’ team 12-11 at the match, whereRosanna Scottothrew 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 girlfriendVeronica Webb,Jean Shafiroff, Douglas Elliman’sHoward LorberandLisa Simonsenand gala chairLaura Lofaro Freeman.RudyandJudith Giulianiwere meant to attend as guests ofSomersandJonathan Farkas, but a spy told us Hizzoner couldn’t make it because he’s joinedMitt Romneyon the campaign trail.

    Wiggy will now speak out against rich people abusing horses for a stupid game? Fat chance since wiggy is a liar and a hypocrite.

    Does this look like a man who would kill a pony?

    I think not. Bite your tongue.

    The pony was from the other team.

    "According to reports, the pony died while Chris Del Gatto’s Circa teammate was riding it...

    Playing on the opposite team in the Bridgehampton Polo tournament was Ralph Lauren model Nacho Figueras, who rides for the Harry Winston team."

    if only.



    nah, i really don't want beth to keel over but she's do for some adversity in her life (yes, bianca dying is terrible but she seems to have recovered quite nicely going to QVC sales and polo matches). i'm not sure what could upset the moron, she's so simple i don't think she's ever suffered from a minute of angst.
    something.
