St. Louis Polo Club Charity Match for the Endangered Wolf Center 

When: Sat., June 20, 4 p.m. and Sat., Aug. 29, 4 p.m. 2015
Price: $25/carload
[THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY, AUGUST 29.]When you think of wolves you don't ordinarily think of polo, but maybe it's time to start. Today the St. Louis Polo Club Charity Match for the Endangered Wolf Center takes place at 4 p.m. at Kraftig Field on the grounds of Blue Heron Farm (4020 Benne Road, Defiance; 636-938-5900 or www.endangeredwolfcenter.org). On the face of it polo might seem an odd choice for a game benefiting wild canids, but its current patrician associations notwithstanding, polo is a very old sport that was originally played by some decidedly wild characters: The Turkomans beat the Persians in the first recorded polo tournament back in 600 B.C. As for the wolves, being the victims of perennial ingrained human ignorance and lethal prejudice, they always need our aid and protection. A host of kids' activities and adult beverages and food complement the event, which costs $25 per car or $75 for the VIP package.
