A Remarkable 2019 Edition Of The Prix De Diane Longines In Presence Of Longines Ambassador Of Elegance Simon Baker

The 170th edition of the Prix de Diane Longines came to a perfect conclusion today at the Chantilly racecourse with the brilliant victory of Channel led by Pierre-Charles Boudot in the eponymous race. As the Title Partner and Official Timekeeper of this prestigious race day, the Swiss watch brand Longines had the honour of presenting, together with its Ambassador of Elegance Simon Baker, elegant timepieces to the winning team. The Australian actor also rewarded Abigail Lopez-Cruz, winner of the “Mademoiselle Diane by Longines” award, celebrating the most elegant lady at the racecourse, with an elegant timepiece from the Record collection.

The much-awaited Prix de Diane Longines, of which Longines was the Title Partner for the 9th consecutive year, saw the incredible victory of Channel and Pierre-Charles Boudot (FR) in the world’s biggest race for fillies. The Swiss watchmaking brand was delighted to present the owner, trainer and jockey of Channel with elegant timepieces from the hands of its Ambassador of Elegance Simon Baker. The acclaimed Australian actor joined the Longines Family in 2012 and was introduced as a new Longines Ambassador of Elegance during that year’s edition of the Prix de Diane Longines.

With no fewer than nine races to rhythm this prestigious and glamorous event, the Prix de Diane Longines offered great sports emotions for the delight of all equestrian lovers in attendance. As the Official Timekeeper of the event, Longines was particularly proud to be part of the Prix Longines Future Racing Stars and the Prix de la Reine Marie-Amélie Longines. The former is open to young jockey from riding schools across the world, while the latter showcases the female riders from the FEGENTRI (International Federation of Gentlemen and Lady Riders). French jockey Thomas Trullier riding Espionne set themselves apart in the Prix Longines Future Racing Stars and Tereza Grbavcicova (CZE) and her mount Bubble Brook crossed the finishing line first in the Prix de La Reine Marie-Amélie Longines. The brand had thus the great honor of granting both winners with an elegant Longines watch as well as a school bursary to the youngest winner.
