A $100K polo pony has sadly passed away during play.

In front of VIPs Saturday, a horse collapsed during a polo match between Circa and Nacho Figueras' team.

The Circa team member had to jump off the falling horse and walked away unharmed.

A rep for the event said the following on the unfortunate scene:

Polo is an extreme sport, and the horses are extreme athletes. The care and well-being of these horses is the most important part of polo to all involved in the sport.

There is always a chance of injury to either horse or rider, as in all equestrian disciplines. There is always a vet on-site . . . there were two on this particular day.

Very sad…
