We are excited and inspired by the June 9th program at Hawaii Polo Club. For the past 56 years, Hawaii Polo has focused on celebrating sport and community on Oahu, and on June 9th, we have the honor of doing so in exemplary fashion - hosting Team Australia on our polo field and raising funds for KTUH 90.1FM, ‘the only station that loves you.’
Team Australia travels 5,000 miles to Hawaii with a four-person team deeply rooted in the equestrian culture of the land down under - Jock Mackay (4-goaler), Adam Frank Tolhurst (4-goaler), Beau Blundell (2-goaler) and Scott Kennedy-Green. Best illuminating the equine history this group brings is Mackay, a former five-goaler who spent years playing professionally around the world before taking over his family’s famed, 175-year-old thoroughbred operation, ‘Cangon Stud Farm.’ Jock Mackay’s father, Jamie Mackay, captained Australia’s world polo team for years, and Jock’s uncle, Bob Skene, is one of few players ever to earn a 10-goal polo handicap.
KTUH has been a community juggernaut on our island and especially, the North Shore, for over half a century - connecting and engaging residents and listeners through music, interviews, event coverage and more. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, KTUH delivers live radio with each show host free to spin whatever music and discuss any topics he or she chooses. Hawaii Polo is thrilled to give back to this station that has brought so much goodness to us.
Come experience a spectacular afternoon and evening - international culture, exciting sport, world-class music, starlit disco, enriching fare, oceanfront tailgating and more June 9th at Hawaii Polo Club.
