Governors Island was once again home to polo this past Sunday when more than 12,000 visitors came to the Island to see the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. Thousands of visitors donned hats, dresses and seer sucker suits and braved a warm day to see Prince Harry’s Black Rock team play Nacho Figueras’ Black Watch Team.
