Longines Christophe Soumillon wins the Japan Cup
This Sunday saw the victory of Christophe Soumillon riding Epiphaneia at the Japan Cup in association with Longines, in Tokyo.
Longines was for the first time the Official Partner, Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of the Japan Cup, attended by Longines Ambassador of Elegance Chi Ling Lin. Inaugurated in 1981, the Japan Cup in association with Longines is a 2400 meter international Group 1 turf race for horses aged three-years-old and up.
To honour Christophe Soumillon's great performance, the winning owner, breeder, trainer, jockey and stable staff members were presented with elegant Longines watches by Mr. Walter von Känel, President of Longines, and Chi Ling Lin, Longines Ambassador of Elegance.
To celebrate both the sporting aspects of this exceptional day and the delicate Japanese-style elegance, Longines organized a Longines Elegance Prize that paid tribute to the kimono. Mrs. Miki Uehara was thus declared most elegant lady and received a magnificent Longines watch from the hands of Mr. Juan-Carlos Capelli, Vice President of Longines and Head of International Marketing.
