Longines WRA Ceremony to Be Virtual

2020 Longines World Racing Awards will be held virtually on Jan. 26 | IFHA

The 2020 Longines World Racing Awards ceremony will be held in a virtual format on Jan. 26 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Organised by Longines and the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA), the event will celebrate the Longines World's Best Racehorse, the Longines World's Best Horse Race and the Longines World's Best Jockey of the 2020 season. The ceremony will be released on multiple digital platforms including the social media accounts of Longines and the IFHA.

The Longines WBRR are established by international handicappers according to the performance of the horses in the top races and the highest rated race is determined by averaging the rankings of the first four placed horses. Previously, it was announced that the 2020 Longines World's Best Jockey is Frankie Dettori.

“We are glad to celebrate once again the Best of the Best in horseracing,” commented Longines Vice President Marketing, Matthieu Baumgartner. “With this first digital edition, we encourage racing fans from all over the world to interact and post their contents using the hashtag #LonginesWorldRacingAwards.”

“We hope everyone will enjoy the behind-the-scenes moments this virtual ceremony allows us to present,” said IFHA Chairman Louis Romanet. “We are looking forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our honourees in this interactive format.”
