What a perfect way to get the ball rolling on a new polo season at the famed International Polo Club (IPC). The “Perfect 10” herself, Bo Derek, still gorgeously recognizable since her 1980s smash hit “10” will throw out the season’s first polo ball for the opening cup matches and help launch a new season at the IPC. And not just any season – but the Club’s highly anticipated 10th Anniversary Season. Perfect.
