Boodles Roodee Challenge Cup Polo – Chester Race Course Photographer
This season, I have had the real privilege of being a Chester Race Course Photographer. To add to the mix of the coverage I have done this year, I was fortunate to photograph the Boodles Roodee Challenge Cup Polo Festival on Day 1.
Starting before everyone arrived, I was capturing the Hospitality side of the event. Horseradish are a superb catering company based at Chester Race Course and did not disappoint with amazing staff and wonderful food for this grand event. The turn out was spectacular on this event which almost did not go ahead due to Hurricane Irma sending weather warnings that this meet would be a no go. But check out that gorgeous blue sky as that backdrop! I really do not know how we manage to avoid it.
Teams that played on Friday:
Team Boodles, Champagne Laurent – Perrier, Controlled Solutions and Old Mutual.
Teams that took the wins from the two matches were Team Boodles and also Team Controlled Solutions. Who will play one another on Sunday.
I must admit, I have never been to a Polo match before. To watch and capture the first day of the Challenge Cup was exciting and I learnt a thing or two as well (after the rules had been explained!) Need to swot up on your do’s and don’ts for Polo? Check this link out here.
