Austin Derby Day Party & Victory Cup Polo Match


It’s a fun-filled day that involves a live polo match, food, drinks, and entertainment followed by coverage of the Kentucky Derby race! Victory attendees are encouraged to dress up, enjoy the beautiful prowess and athleticism of the polo ponies, the excitement of the polo match, and all of the other activities the event has to offer.  Guests can also enjoy a VIP/tent experience where they can mix and mingle with premier event sponsors and partners, taste farm to table foods and local wines, spirits and beer from the greater Austin area. The day ends with an impressive sabering presentation and player awards! After that, a 9ft by 16ft LED screen will display a live feed of the 142nd run of the Kentucky Derby. Last but not least, Victory Cup Farm to Table pass holders will then get to an experience an incredible Farm to Table Dinner on the polo field with the polo players themselves! A limited amount of Farm to Table Dinner tickets are now available on The Victory Cup website.
