Mt. Brilliant Polo Club is proud to host the Kentucky Cup polo tournament. The tournament will be played at Mt. Brilliant Farm LLC in Lexington, Kentucky, on pristine polo fields. Five teams will take to the field including some well-known staples of high-goal polo such as defending champion Orchard Hill. Joining them are Faraway and WM Polo, as well as Hillcroft and Mt. Brilliant. Amongst the competition is Team USPA graduate, Costi Caset (Hillcroft) and alumni Felipe Viana (WM Polo) and Herndon Radcliff (Hillcroft).
As the country emerges out of the COVID-19 crisis, the USPA established opportunities to support USPA Member Club events through the use of the COVID-19 USPA Polo Tournament Stimulus Package, which provides eligible USPA Member Clubs with waived tournament fees, trophies or reimbursements, one professional umpire and $2,500 in prize money per tournament at no extra cost. Offered to each club for the first two USPA tournaments of 2020 following the COVID-19 USPA Tournaments and Events suspension, Mt. Brilliant Polo LLC will be taking advantage of the program for this tournament.
