The Palm Beach Polo Club

The very unique Palm Beach sport of Polo is played in the town of Wellington,
which is actually a few miles west of West Palm Beach.

The game of Polo is played by teams of players on horses trying to knock a ball
with their mallets past a goal line.  The game is played on a grass field that is 300
yards long by 150 yards wide.  There are six 7-minute periods in the game with a
4 minute break in between each period and a 10 minute halftime.

Polo brings many of the rich and famous to the upsacle community of Wellington,
which is also known for its golf, tennis, and equestrian facilities as polo has been
called the "sport of kings".

The Palm Beach Polo and Country Club's 3000 seat stadium is located at
11199 Polo Club Road.  You can visit their website for more info at

The Palm Beach Kennel Club

Dog racing is another truly unique Palm Beach event you can wager on that most
people have probably never seen. You can get up close to one of the fastest
animals around and watch as they chase the mechanical lure around the track.

Wagering is similar to horse racing as you can bet to Win, Place, Show, Quinella,
Perfecta, Trifecta, etc.

You may want to make this your first or last stop in your visit to West Palm
Beach as it is right across from the airport on Belvedere Rd.
