38 POLO P L A Y E R S E D I T I O N landmark new Apex Motor Club in Maricopa, Arizona, debuted, recognizing the top cars on site, including collector cars courtesy of Barrett-Jackson, Ferrari Club of Arizona, Porsche Club, Scottsdale Corvette Club, Arizona Classic Thunderbird Club, AZ Lamborghini Club, Corvette Club of America, as well as cars of Apex members and dozens of other Arizona car owners. For the first time, the world's farthest rugby sevens match was played. Led by Arizona State University's rugby team, the match was played on a field nearly two and a half times longer than normal. Field-side tents had something for everyone including the F.A.B. (fashion, art and beauty) tent, featuring a pop-up art gallery by the Scottsdale-based Larsen Art Gallery and Auction; sideline manicures by the Talking Stick Resort Spa; fashion displays by Evan's Furs and LoveOverH8, a socially conscious clothing line by local resident Cheryl Najafi; and Velveteria, a Los Angeles- based museum devoted to velvet art works. A wine, cheese and chocolate tent offered samples of extensive selections of each available for purchase. A romantic "couples cabanas" on the west side of the polo field provided a private tent for two with a complimentary bottle of champagne and a superb view of the polo action and McDowell Mountains. The DJ-infused party tents had eight DJs playing on site at one time. U.S. Polo Assn. global brand ambassador Ashley Busch played in the Molina Cup. Her husband, professional stock car racing driver Kurt Busch, left, was on hand for the event.
