|Longines World’s Best Racehorse Ceremony to be Live Streamed
Longines and the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA) will provide a live video stream of the 2014 Longines World’s Best Racehorse Ceremony, which will be held on 20 January 2015.
The ceremony is set to take place in London, England at the iconic hotel Claridge’s and will begin at 12:55PM GMT. The live video stream will be available at both longines.com and ifhaonline.org.
This marks the second Longines World’s Best Racehorse Ceremony, following the inaugural event held in December 2013 during the gala dinner of the Longines Hong Kong International Races. Black Caviar and Treve were honored as the world’s co-highest rated racehorse that evening and shared the title of Longines World’s Best Racehorse.
The Longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings are established by international handicappers according to the performance of the horses in elite races. While the final 2014 rankings will be revealed on the day, Japan’s Just A Way has led the way for the majority of the year on the strength of his dominant triumph in the G1 Dubai Duty Free Stakes. Meanwhile, European 3-year-olds Australia, Kingman, and The Grey Gatsby as well as South Africa’s Variety Club currently share the title of co-2nd highest rated horse in the world.
The owner of the winning horse will be presented with a rose gold chronograph from the Conquest Classic collection and a replica of the vase of the Longines World’s Best Racehorse. The original vase, on which the names of the winning horses are engraved, can now be seen at the Hour Passion concept store on Oxford Street.
The date of the Longines World’s Best Racehorse Ceremony will also mark the unveiling of the full Longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings and European 2-year-old classifications for 2014.
