Stefanie Powers To Attend Sunday Polo Game At New International Polo
Club Palm Beach
WELLINGTON - January 7, 2004 Stefanie Powers, best known for her role
in TV's Hart to Hart, is expected to attend the 22-goal Joe Barry
Memorial tournament game Sunday at 3 p.m. at the new International
Polo Club Palm Beach.
Powers will participate in the post-match trophy ceremonies between
Old Pueblo and Crab Orchard, two teams fighting to make the playoffs.
Crab Orchard, using a revamped lineup, defeated Everglades 10-8 in
its first game. Patron George Rawlings' team played without superstar
Memo Gracida, a 10-goaler for more than 20 years who is nursing a
sore back. Joining Rawlings will be 8-goaler Julio Arellano, who led
the team with five goals in its first game. If Gracida is able to
play, his son Julio, will also play. If the Hall of Famer cannot play,
Rawlings will call upon Roberto Gonzales and Pablo Spanachi to fill
A loss would eliminate John Hall's Old Pueblo from the playoffs. In
its first match, Old Pueblo was defeated 19-7 by Brigadoon. Old Pueblo
is led by a trio of young players destined to achieve greatness -
8-goaler Jeff Hall, 7-goaler Nicolas Roldan and 6-goaler Brandon Phillips.
Eleven teams have entered the year's first high-goal tournament. The
semifinals are scheduled for Thursday, January 15 with the final scheduled
for Sunday, January 18 at 3 p.m.
A long-time conservationist and animal activist, Powers will also
be in town to attend a private event on Monday night at the polo club
celebrating the return of the East African Bongo antelope to mountains
in Kenya, spearheaded by the Rare Species Conservatory Foundation
The program will establish a breeding group of 20 bongos at the Mount
Kenya Game Ranch. Within six to 10 years, offspring from the original
breeding group will be slowly released into the Mount Kenya National
