A source close to Jones said the actor now prefers to play polo at home in San Saba, Texas, and his other place in California.

Jones has been a permanent and visible fixture on the South Florida polo scene since he bought the 50 acres and named the property San Saba Polo Ranch.

He and his team played in Boca Raton at first but then he became an early member of the International Polo Club Palm Beach in the mid-2000s.

San Saba Polo Ranch includes a regulation-sized polo field, a pond, several miles of horse trails and two barns with 48 stalls. There are also living quarters that include four bedrooms and two bathrooms on 11,000-square-feet.

“It’s a unique property for a unique buyer,” said Realtor Philip Lyle Smith, who sells large homes. “The appraisal could be a problem since there’s a huge difference between what Mr. Jones bought it for and what he wants for it. It’s going to take a while for him to sell it.”

    Your bitterness that the Post didn’t rehire you after you left is getting pretty tiresome – get over it.

    I saw him at a convenience store around Feb. 10 or 11, 2000 . In Delray Beach. It didn’t completely register at the time. Later others claimed to have seen him and then it registered. He was dressed like a construction worker and blended in quite well.
