Final Tax Efficient Investment Opportunities Available

As the season gallops on we have captured some amazing action from the Queens Cup, the Prince of Wales Trophy, and the Gold Cup which comes to its exciting climax this weekend following the semi finals tomorrow.  King Power Foxes are favourites to lift the 2015 Jaeger-LeCoultre Gold Cup should they overcome Zacara, but will face stiff competition in the final from the winner of the other semi final of Apes Hill and UAE.  For a full run down of the Gold Cup results and fixtures please click here.

There are a small amount of investment opportunities still available in Sport of Kings providing considerable income tax, capital gains tax and potentially inheritance tax benefits due to its SEIS/ EIS status - all summarised below. 

On top of these benefits, investors will also receive a 20% investment premium and a 50% share of net profits pro rata pari pasu.

Whilst these are good but cautious estimated returns, the road to huge commercial success in the genre has been paved by films such as Senna, One Night in Turin, Searching for Sugar Man and Fahrenheit 9/11 amongst many others, all show the potential for a strong box office, DVD and VOD returns which Sport of Kings will seek to follow.

Ebony Horse Club @ Polo in the Park

Four  teenage members of Ebony Horse Club had a great day out on June 7th at Chestertons Polo in the Park, held at the Hurlingham Club in London. It was the first chance for many of them to watch a match and to learn more about the sport and the SoK team were proud to capture not just the action on the pitch but these first time experiences off it for the children involved.  They cheered on the Mint London Team during their match with Shoreline Lagos and were very excited to meet both teams afterwards.

 "Unfortunately London lost but Lagos played really well" said Indigo, aged 12.

It was an inspiring day for these young people. They have been practicing on their horses at the charity's own riding centre in Brixton, preparing for a day at Somerton Polo in Lewes where they have been invited for a taster day in July.

 "Our horses don't really get neck reining so it's going to be amazing to ride real polo ponies," said Jordi, aged 15.

 Polo is the most recent addition to activities being introduced to these young urban riders.

 "It's wonderful to see their enthusiasm. A day out like this, is a fantastic experience for them to build on their own ambitions. Maybe we'll see an Ebony Horse Club player here one day!" said Jody Thorsby, a volunteer with the charity.

The charity relies heavily on volunteers like Jody to provide opportunities for these young people growing up in one of the most disadvantaged areas in the UK.

Will Facundo Pieres' mesmeric goal lift polo?

The Argentine's overtime winner to win the recent Queens Cup for King Power Foxes should be used to promote sport to wider audience. Facundo Pieres, the Argentine world No 1, has described his wonder goal at the Queens Cup as a “special moment”, putting his extra time winner for King Power Foxes comfortably into his top three finishes of an already majestic career.

One night in Piaget

Last night, Piaget hosted the launch of 'Sport of Kings' at their beautiful New Bond Street boutique in the heart of Mayfair, London.

The evening opened with drinks, mingling and a chance to browse the exquisite Piaget's watches and jewellery before brief introductions from Piaget's brand director Lorenza Cavalli who spoke about the longstanding affiliation the company has with international Polo. Alex Holmes from New Black Films followed with a passionate overview of the production and his recent experience of shooting in Argentina, the hot bed of Polo. Guests were then shown exclusive and exciting footage from the documentary film and TV series.

We were also treated to a taste of absolute luxury from Royal Dutch Caviar whose product was perfectly paired with champagne and delicious canapés throughout the evening. The event launched the project officially to the Polo world and saw the production team, patrons, characters, press, brands and all those involved in the future success of the project come together for the very first time 

We were pleased to have Nicholas Colquhoun-Denvers, the President of the Federation of International Polo, Roy Prisk professional polo player and Victoria Elsbury-Legg (@velsburylegg) Polo journalist and blogger, and Jamie Morrison owner of the Royal Berkshire Polo Club join us for this exclusive evening.

Jason Phillips CEO of Heritage Media was unable to attend but the New Black Films production team and John Santos of Golden Mile Productions with whom the project originated were in attendance and able to pass on their passion and knowledge about sport of kings to all the guests.

There are still opportunities for investors to be involved in Sport of Kings managed by Goldfinch Entertainment, the investment arm of leading Entertainment Accountants Nyman Libson Paul.

What is a 10 goal player in polo?

What is a 10 goal player in polo?

polo handicap is a system created by Henry Lloyd Herbert, the first president of the United States Polo Association, at the founding of the USPA in 1890 so teams could be more evenly matched when using players with varying abilities. The players are rated on a scale from minus-2 to 10. Minus-2 indicates a novice player, while a player rated at 10 goals has the highest handicap possible. It is so difficult to attain a 10-goal handicap that there are fewer than a dozen in the world, and about two-thirds of all players handicapped are rated at two goals or less.
