La Cressonnière is 2016 Prix de Diane Longines Champion

PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#EleganceisanAttitude–The filly La Cressonnière swept to victory in the Prix de Diane
Longines, the world’s top race for fillies, in view of more than 45’000
enthusiastic spectators at the Chantilly racecourse on 19 June 2016. To
celebrate this fantastic performance, Christian Demuro, who rid the
champion of the day, the owner and the trainer received The Longines
Master Collection watch from the Swiss watch maker Longines, the Title
Partner, Official Timekeeper and Watch of the event for the 6th time.
The raceday in Chantilly is also famous for being the rendez-vous of
elegant ladies. Amongst them, Alexia Masseron won the “Mademoiselle
Diane par Longines” prize. She was presented a Longines DolceVita, which
was the Official Watch of the event, from the hands of Longines
Ambassador of Elegance and Asian movie star Eddie Peng.

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 dear to the Swiss watchmaker. These two races put in the
spotlight the remarkable skills of young jockeys from all around the
world and 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.
