Two leading organisations join forces to create an incredible event this September. September 15, 16 and 17, Elite Foal Auction Borculo and Royal Polo at the Palace gather the finest foals and polo combinations at an illustrious location: the Soestdijk Palace. Elite Foal Auction Borculo takes place on Friday September 15. The prestigious Pearlcard Cup of Royal Polo is played on Saturday and Sunday. The venue furthermore hosts a luxury fair with many prominent brands on display.

If you want to go far, go together
Elite Foal Auction Borculo and Royal Polo at the Palace have more in common than their passion for horses. Both organisations strive to organise exclusive events of a high standard. This unique partnership offers numerous synergies and ensures visitors are treated to an invigorating three-day event.

Albert Hakkers, on behalf of Royal Polo at the Palace, is excited about the upcoming event: “Although we represent different disciplines of equestrian sport, we have one common goal: creating a next-level event that will dazzle the visitors. We both strive for the best and we are looking forward to fusing these two worlds together.

Annelou de Man of Elite Foal Auction Borculo chimes in: “Inspired by the horses, or in this case foals, as a joint passion, we want to organise a fantastic event. We aimed to create a unique event, something our breeders and clients had not experienced before. Thanks to the collaboration with Royal Polo at the Palace and the Soestdijk Palace we will not only live up to those expectations, but we will also exceed them!”

Pearlcard Cup
One of the highlights of the event is the prestigious Pearlcard Cup. Four international teams will battle for this coveted trophy. The teams, each composed of three players, play a thrilling match with a handicap of 4-6. The official polo rules apply, including an umpire and English-speaking commentator.

The Royal Polo at the Palace Foundation was founded to support charities, with a special focus on children. For that reason, the Soestdijk Palace will form the radiant backdrop of a charity gala on Saturday. This year, this special night revolves around Make-A-Wish the Netherlands.
