Longines World's Best Racehorse & Best Race 2019

This Wednesday, the elite met in London, marking the seventh time that Longines and the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA) have honoured the top Thoroughbred racehorses of the previous year, during a  ceremony which also crowned the Longines World’s Best Horse Race for a fifth time.

 

At the iconic Landmark hotel, the title of 2019 co-Longines World’s Best Racehorse was shared between Crystal Ocean (GB), Enable (GB) and Waldgeist (GB), who were all jointly rated at 128.

 

Crystal Ocean’s biggest victory of the year came in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes during Royal Ascot. He was ridden by three-time Longines World’s Best Jockey Lanfranco “Frankie” Dettori – also present at the ceremony – in the Prince of Wales’ Stakes and by two-time Longines World’s Best Jockey Ryan Moore in the Al Rayyan and Gordon Richards before retiring to stud in Ireland in 2020.

 

Co-Longines World’s Best Racehorse Enable reeled off three consecutive Group 1 victories in 2019, including defeating both Crystal Ocean and Waldgeist in the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes. The mare’s jockey in 2019 – and for most of her career – was Dettori. Enable has been rated as one of the Top 10 horses in the world every year she has been eligible for the Longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings, and she is expected to race in 2020.%break%Waldgeist received his rating of 128 for his impressive victory in the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, which he won over Enable. In 2019, Waldgeist also won the Prix Ganay and the Qatar Prix Foy. The British-bred and French-trained racehorse retired after his victory in the Arc and will stand at stud in Ireland in 2020.

 

The winning connections were presented with elegant Longines watches a well as a replica of the Longines World’s Best Racehorse vase, named Equus, by representatives of Longines and IFHA.

 

The Longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings are established by international handicappers according to the performance of the horses in top races. In the previous edition, England’s Cracksman (GB) and Australia’s Winx (AUS) were celebrated as the joint winners of the 2018 Longines World’s Best Racehorse title.

 

This afternoon, Longines and the IFHA were also delighted to celebrate the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe as the 2019 Longines World’s Best Horse Race. Longines is proud to be the Official Partner and Official Timekeeper of this historic race, which takes place at ParisLongchamp Racecourse and attracts each year the best horses, jockeys, trainers and owners from all over the world.

 

The Longines World’s Best Horse Race Award recognizes the best-rated race of the highest-rated Group 1 international races as established by a panel of international handicappers. The ratings of the top four finishers in each race serve as basis for the assessment. Present in London to accept the award, France Galop President Edouard de Rothschild received an elegant Longines timepiece as well as a replica of the trophy, representing a proud horse head.
