The Blue Eye wins HH The Emir’s Trophy presented by Longines in Qatar
As Official Partner and Timekeeper of Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club, the Swiss watch brand was proud to celebrate the victory of The Blue Eye in the much-anticipated HH The Emir’s Trophy presented by Longines, and to reward the winning connections with elegant Longines timepieces, together with H.H. Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar. During the race day, Longines also presented the Longines Prize for Elegance to Nadia Durepaire, who distinguished herself as the most elegant lady at the racetrack.
The HH The Emir’s Trophy presented by Longines marked another successful conclusion to the 3-raceday Emir’s Sword Equestrian Festival. Held annually at the Al Rayyan racetrack, the festival is one of the most definitive equestrian events on Qatar’s horse-racing calendar attended by both a strong local contingent and many from Europe.
