GOING from fashions on the field to falling over drunk at the end of the day, shoes in hand seems like a pretty typical day at the races.

But the days of having a few too many might be over, if the principal behind a sold-out event in New York takes off.

Polo-loving New Yorkers gathered over the weekend to enjoy the 8th annual Veuve Clicquot Polo in the Park — with the star-studded crowd enjoying the perfect blue skies.

But the end of the day was just as classy as the beginning, with attendees limited to five drinks.

So how does it work? Guests were given a choice of either ‘buying’ a bottle of champagne or given a wrist band that would allow them to purchase just five glasses of bubbles as the long and hot day progressed.

As event co-hosts, leading Argentinian polo player Nacho Figueras and Veuve Clicquot’s Vanessa Kay welcomed 8000 summer-decked out guests to the Park for the Polo Classic.

With amazing views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty serving as the backdrop, guests enjoyed the afternoon complete with a fast-paced polo match, the season’s most stylish fashions and of course, French bubbles.

Always a star-studded event, the Polo Classic was attended by celebrities including Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson, 50 Cent, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Freida Pinto, and Aussie born model Andreja Pecik.

Team Black Watch beat Team Veuve Clicquot 10-7 with Nacho Figueras winning MVP.

In addition to the polo match, the day’s highlights included Girls star and Broadway performer Andrew Rannells’ crowd-pleasing rendition of the National Anthem, the ceremonial ball toss thrown in by Frieda Pinto to kick off the match, Emma Roberts and Joan Smalls stomping the divots during half-time, and bold-faced names having fun on the dance floor listening to the beats of DJ Nikki Pennie.
