PHOTOS — Polo Season Ends In Overtime, Overdrive!

WELLINGTON — Celebrity guests Vanilla Ice and Bo Derek made the last polo match of the season at the International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington a cool, perfect 10!

Robert Van Winkle, the Wellington rapper better known as Vanilla Ice, who’s no stranger to polo, showed up to chill. He was, after all, on a short break from his I Love The 90s tour.

And Derek, the iconic 1970s actress made her annual appearance with nary a corn row in sight!

A hint of sadness, however, fell on the field as Orchard Hill beat Dubai in overtime in the final match of big-deal U.S. Open Polo Championship.

With developer Mark Bellissimo closing on his purchase of the club from the family of imprisoned trust-funder John Goodman April 29, many of those in charge Sunday could be pink-slipped.

Caterer Aaron Menitoff and his wife Julie, who created the fancy pre-game brunches that attracted several hundred people every Sunday, already were told Sunday would be their last day.

Popular general Manager John Wash, who helped fill up the stadium to the brim after years of polo neglect in Wellington, says he doesn’t know.

“Look at the stands,” he said, “no matter what’s next, we really did good.”
