Winner Crowned: '21 Best of the Best in Show

Date: Wednesday, December 15, 2021

Two weeks and over 260 votes cast have adjudicated the 2021 Best of the Best in Show!  Congratulations to Sarah DiCarlo and friends for a resplendent display that earned top honors among all the Best in Show contenders this summer.

Their Tailgate Party on July 31 during the East Coast Women's Cup was over the top, embracing our red and white 30th Anniversary theme to the fullest.  The hanging garland chandelier immediately caught the judge's eye during the match, while custom polo pennants, elegant floral displays in ornate vases, and a mouthwatering picnic, again featuring red and white delights, clinched the win on game day and made a natural contender for the 2021 Best of the Best.  Our fans agreed, keeping their nomination in the lead from early in the competition.  Sarah will be awarded an exclusive COCOA & CO. MINI PORTRAIT SESSION for (choice of 1): Couple Session, Kids Session (up to 4) & Family or Group Session (up to 6), plus high res photos and prints.

Voting rewards for those who messaged the Newport Polo Facebook Fan Page will be issued soon.  Please keep an eye on your Facebook messages for instructions to redeem your complimentary Lawn Ticket to the Newport International Polo Series.

Thank you to all the participants!  Additional thanks to: our resident portrait photographer, COCOA & CO. for capturing these memories from the 2021 season and supplying the contest grand prize; Stella Artois, sponsor of our in-season Best In Show competition, providing a special gift and Jumbotron moment of fame for all 17 matches.
