Longines Hong Kong International Races 2018

For the delight of all the enthusiastic race fans in attendance, the Longines Hong Kong International Races featured this year again stunning performances from some of the world’s best racehorses and jockeys. As regards the four international Group 1 races held on that day, the Longines Hong Kong Vase was claimed by Exultant ridden by Zac Purton, who also grabbed the first place in the Longines Hong Kong Mile aboard Beauty Generation. Mr Stunning led by Karis Teetan triumphed in the Longines Hong Kong Sprint, while the Longines Hong Kong Cup was won by Glorious Forever and Silvestre de Sousa.

This unmissable event, of which the Swiss watch brand has been the Title Partner and Official Timekeeper since 2012, is year after year the perfect illustration that racing excellence can successfully combine with great refinement. Indeed, Longines lent an elegant touch to this world-class event by inviting acclaimed South Korean actor and Ambassador of Elegance Jung Woo-Sung to attend the race day, and to present the Longines Prize for Elegance to the most elegant female spectator in attendance.

Together with Jung-Woo Sung, Walter von Känel, Longines President, Kevin Rollenhagen, Managing Director of Swatch Group Hong Kong Limited and Karen Au Yeung, Vice President of Longines Hong Kong, took part in the ribbon-cutting ceremony in front of guests and representatives from the media.

Featuring a blue dial, this timepiece is equipped with an exclusive movement renowned for its high degree of precision (± 5 seconds/year) and its ability to reset its hands after an impact or exposure to a magnetic field. These attractive features are likely responsible for its exceptional movement status, to which a very long battery life and a perpetual calendar must be added. In the true essence of Conquest, the ultimate sports line, this exceptional timepiece brings together high technicality and dynamic aesthetic. The Conquest V.H.P. has thus positioned itself as the standard-bearer of extreme precision.

LHKIR Gala Dinner & World Best Jockey Awards - Hong Kong

Italian-born, British-based jockey Frankie Dettori, who is known for his distinctive "flying dismounts", clinched a second Longines World’s Best Jockey title in recognition of his remarkable achievements throughout the 2018 racing season. He was recognised at a ceremony held during the Longines Hong Kong International Races Gala dinner on 7 December 2018, at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. Walter von Känel, President of Longines and Louis Romanet, Chairman of the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA), presented Dettori with an elegant 18k rose gold Longines timepiece from The Saint-Imier Collection as well as a crystal vase.

 

Showing his versatility, Dettori won eight of the world’s Top 100 Group or Grade 1 races aboard five different horses this year. His qualifying victories, seven of which were timed by Longines, came in the Prix Ganay - Prix de l'Inauguration de ParisLongchamp (Cracksman), Investec Coronation Cup (Cracksman), St James's Palace Stakes (Without Parole), Gold Cup (Stradivarius), Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (Enable), QIPCO Champion Stakes (Cracksman), Breeders’ Cup Mile (Expert Eye), and Longines Breeders' Cup Turf (Enable).   

 

The scoring process rewards jockeys for finishing in the top three, giving Dettori a total of 128 points over the year.  Second place went to Oisin Murphy, who finished with 114 points, while Ryan Moore was third with 112 points. Dettori joins Moore as a two-time winner of the Longines World’s Best Jockey Award, which was established in 2014. Moore won in the inaugural year and in 2016, while Hugh Bowman was honoured last year.

 

The awarding of the Longines World’s Best Jockey is based upon performances in the 100 highest-rated Group 1 and Grade 1 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 Longines World’s Best Jockey Award was established five years ago by Longines and the IFHA as a way to quantitatively recognise a jockey as the best among his or her global peers. It marked the first time a jockey was honoured in such a way.
