Arrogate crowned the Longines World’s Best Racehorse for the second year in a row, Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe named Longines World’s Best Horse Race for the second time

The Longines World’s Best Racehorse and Longines World’s Best Horse Race Ceremony is returning to the iconic hotel Claridge’s in London, England, and it will begin at 14:00 GMT/9:00 EST. 

This will be the fifth ceremony honouring the Longines World’s Best Racehorse. Previous winners include Arrogate (USA) in 2016, American Pharoah (USA) in 2015, Just A Way (JPN) in 2014, and Australia’s Black Caviar and France’s Treve, who were jointly celebrated in 2013.

Furthermore, this year marks the third time the Longines World’s Best Horse Race will be awarded. The Longines World’s Best Horse Race award recognizes the best-rated race of the highest-rated Group 1 international races as established for the year by a panel of international handicappers. The ratings of the top four finishers in each race serve as basis for the assessment. The Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe was the inaugural winner in 2015, while the Breeders’ Cup Classic won in 2016.
