Longines Hong Kong International Races 2018

December 03, 2018

The horse racing event of the end of the year

As the end of the year approaches, the enthusiasm for the Longines Hong Kong International Races grows! All horse racing fans await this prestigious event, and will surely flock to the Sha Tin Racecourse on December 9, 2018.

Also known as the “turf world championships”, the Longines Hong Kong International Races is composed of four iconic races: the Longines Hong Kong Cup (run over a distance of 2,000 m) for a prize money HK$28,000k, the Longines Hong Kong Mile (1,600 m) for a prize of HK$25,000k, the Longines Hong Kong Sprint (1,200 m) for a prize of HK$20,000k, and the Longines Hong Kong Vase (2,400 m) for a prize of HK$20,000k.The total prize money for the Hong Kong International Races is HK$93,000k.

The event is a perfect illustration of Longines’ long time involvement in timekeeping and equestrian sports. A link that began as early as 1878, when the Swiss Watchmaking brand created a new mechanical chronograph, adorned with an engraved horse and jockey. This exceptional pocket watch was the first of many milestones in a long history between the Longines brand and equestrian sports.

The Longines Hong Kong International Races are a true example of the values that Longines strives to represent, from the pursuit of exceptional performances to a timeless elegance and a strong sense of tradition.
