The International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA), LONGINES, and the Hong Kong Jockey Club announced that the top three horses on the LONGINES World’s Best Racehorse Rankings will be recognized during the LONGINES WORLD’s BEST RACEHORSE CEREMONY at the gala dinner of the LONGINES Hong Kong International Races, which is scheduled for 6th December 2013 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre.
The LONGINES World’s Best Racehorse Rankings are horse racing’s equivalent to world rankings by other major sporting organizations and are based on the ratings earned by horses running worldwide from North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. The ratings are compiled under the auspices of the IFHA by racing officials and handicappers representing the five continents.
This is the first year in which connections of the three highest rated horses on the LONGINES World’s Best Racehorse Rankings will be honored at the gala dinner of the LONGINES Hong Kong International Races.
