Australian Hugh Bowman receives the 2017 Longines World’s Best Jockey Award in Hong Kong

Horse Racing
December 13, 2017

After dominating for the majority of the season, Australia’s Hugh Bowman claimed the “2017 Longines World’s Best Jockey” award, which was presented to him tonight during the Longines International Hong Kong Races Gala Dinner. Besides this prestigious title, Bowman received an elegant Longines timepiece as well as a replica of the crystal vase which will be engraved with his name, alongside the previous winners, Ryan L. Moore and Lanfranco “Frankie” Dettori, who incidentally finished second and third in this year’s competition.


The Australian jockey won 10 of the world’s Top 100 Group/Grade 1 races, and six of those victories came aboard Winx, who was celebrated as the third-highest rated racehorse in the world in 2016 and is currently the highest rated turf horse in the world in the 2017 Longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings. Amongst Bowman’s great wins, five races were timed by Longines, including the Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Royal Randwick and the Japan Cup in association with Longines at Tokyo Racecourse, which secured Bowman the victory for the 2017 “Longines World Best Jockey” title.


The Longines World’s Best Jockey Award is a proud joint initiative of Longines and the IFHA.  It is based upon performances in the 100 highest-rated Group/Grade 1 international races as established for the year by the Longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings Committee. The scoring incorporates races from 1 December of the previous year until 30 November of the current year.  Jockeys accrue 12 points for a win, 6 points for placing second, and 4 points for placing third.


The prestigious gala dinner of the Longines Hong Kong International Races also served as the perfect occasion for the Swiss watch brand to present its new TV Spot featuring Longines Ambassador and Asian superstar Eddie Peng, who will be attending the races for the second time, after his presence during the 2014 edition. The TV spot highlights the Official Watch of the event, a model from the Record collection. Combining classic elegance and excellence, this line aspires to become the spearheads of the brand.
