That's the number of stages the Longines Masters Series has had during 2019! After Paris, Hong Kong and New York, the Longines Masters signature concept of combining sporting and lifestyle excellence has been enriched with an outdoor stopover on the shores of Lake Leman, in the city of Lausanne, Switzerland.


The total number of horses that have cantered the sand of the magnificent Masters tracks during Season IV. Among them: Ayade de Septon*HDC, Caribis Z, Cornet d'Amour, Armitages Boy and Creedance! There have been just as many boxes, and exponential amounts of shavings, hay and carrots supplied for the well-being of these athletes.

In New York, it was the Italian Emanuele Gaudiano who also achieved this feat by being the only one to exceed 2.01m!

In Paris, it was not one, but two riders - Simon Delestre and Denis Lynch - who climbed to the highest step of the podium, after both cleared the pole, set at 1.92m.


Is the time in seconds that Egyptian rider Nayel Nassar posted when he won the Longines Speed Challenge of New York, a real-world Speed Championship. Riding his ever-faithful Lucifer V, he achieved the fastest time over the 4 stages combined.

In Hong Kong, it was Irish rider Bertram Allen riding Christy JNR, who completed the course the fastest in 60.47 seconds; in Lausanne, it was Emanuele Gaudiano riding his good mare Carlotta, who stepped onto the top of the podium with a 61.04 seconds round, and finally, Kevin Staut kicked off the Longines Speed Challenge Season IV victories in Paris with a 62.29 second round riding his faithful mount Ayade de Septon*HDC.
