The 2018 #longines World’s Best Racehorse and #longines World’s Best Horse Race Ceremony will be held on 23 January 2019 in London, England. For the first time, #longines and the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA) have selected The Landmark as the host site.

On 23 January, #longines and the IFHA will be proud to award the 2018 #longines World’s Best Racehorse, as well as the 2018 #longines World’s Best Horse Race in the iconic Landmark hotel in London, England. The ceremony, now in its sixth year, will honour the three highest-rated horses in the #longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings as well as the #longines World’s Best Horse Race. In the previous edition, Arrogate (USA) was celebrated as the 2017 #longines World’s Best Racehorse, while the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, which was won by Enable (GB), won the title of 2017 #longines World’s Best Horse Race.

The #longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings are established by international handicappers according to the performance of the horses in top races. The highest rated race is determined by averaging the rankings of the first four placed horses. The full list and further information on the #longines World's Best Racehorse Rankings are both available on the IFHA website http://www.ifhaonline.org.

The trophy celebrating the #longines World’s Best Racehorse is a crystal vase named Equus, whereas the #longines World’s Best Horse Race trophy represents a proud horse head. Every year, the trophies are engraved with the name of the #longines World’s Best Racehorse and Horse Race respectively, and the representatives of the winners are presented with an elegant #longines watch.

Passionate about horse racing since more than a century, #longines is proud to be the Official Partner and Official Watch of the IFHA, and to lend its name to the #longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings. The long-term partnership between #longines and the IFHA has seen the establishment of a prestigious set of awards aimed to honour the #excellence of horseracing. The #longines World’s Best Racehorse and Horse Race Award, the #longines and IFHA International Award of Merit, and the #longines World’s Best Jockey Award respectively pay tribute to the racehorses, horse races, personalities, and jockeys who excel at the highest level of the sport.
