THE EVENT: Four hundred years a er a brave band of 104 British colonists crossed the Atlantic to settle in Virginia, the U.K. took the inaugural six chukker polo contest 7-3 from the U.S. – despite a Herculean eff ort by organizer Tareq Salahi, who scored for the Yanks at Morven Park’s just-completed polo pitch.
