La Cressonnière is 2016 Prix de Diane Longines champion
Moreover, amongst the nine races which unrolled in Chantilly, the Prix Longines Future Racing Stars and the Prix de La Reine Marie-Amélie Longines are particularly dear to the Swiss watchmaker. These two races put in the spotlight the remarkable skills of young jockeys from all around the world and the lady riders of the International Federation of Gentlemen and Lady Riders (FEGENTRI), of which the Swiss brand is the Official Partner and Watch. The brand had thus the great honor to award The Longines Master Collection watch as well as a school bursary to Conor Mcgovern from Ireland, who crossed first the finishing line on Fawley. Debora Fioretti riding Palang was the winning lady rider.
Longines is for the sixth time the Official Partner, Timekeeper and Watch of the Prix de Diane Longines. This association is part of its partnership with France Galop, which was renewed last year. Under this partnership, Longines is the Official Timekeeper for the racing days organized at the Chantilly, Deauville and Longchamp racetracks, including the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and the Prix du Jockey Club.
