The LONGINES World's Best Racehorses Rankings
is horseracing's equivalent to World Rankings by other major sporting organizations
such as ATP Tennis Rankings, World Golf Rankings, FIFA World Rankings for soccer and IRB Rugby World Rankings. The LONGINES Rankings are
based on the ratings earned by horses running worldwide from North and South America, Europe, Middle East, South Africa, Asia through to
Australia and New Zealand. The ratings are compiled under the auspices of The International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA)
by racing officials & handicappers representing the five continents who compile the ranking order by agreeing on the rating for each horse.
The ratings are based on the performance of horses in elite races held during the designated period which takes in account the quality of
opposition and achievements of each horse. Throughout the year the Longines Rankings are published at regular intervals and the
consolidated annual rankings are released in January. The annual rankings denote the champions in the various distance categories for
example sprint or mile, surface either turf or dirt/artificial and also the fillies & mares category.
