    The theme of the night was of course, horses. Anything from the Polo branded horse sewn on Nacho Figueras jersey to the horses branded on the Ferraris and the horse insignia on the charity's logo, Work to Ride. Work to Ride is a non-profit that assists inner-city kids develop self discipline and life skills by learning how to ride and take care of horses.

    The evening consisted of plenty of cocktails and champagne, a private polo tutorial with Nacho Figueras, a silent auction, and a polo competition for the first ever Work to Ride Avantair Trophy. In the midst of all the polo, Two Trees Farm was also full of trendsetters and tastemakers of the Hamptons.

    Nacho Figueras is one of the world's best known polo players - he has made his mark with his athletic ability and natural good looks (as he parlayed his polo career as a Polo model for Ralph Lauren). Figueras has made it his mission to promote polo and spread the enthusiasm for the sport, as well as to make it a family-friendly activity. Through the First Annual Sunday Classic, Nacho Figueras has helped to bring polo to a new market and extend the appeal of the timeless sport.
