PRIX DE DIANE LONGINES

See you the 14th June 2020 Chantilly Racecourse

THE BIGGEST FILLIES RACE IN THE WORLD

1 Channel wins the 2019 Prix de Diane Longines

CHANNEL WINS THE 2019 PRIX DE DIANE LONGINES!


PDDL19.jpg

It was the French filly Channel (Nathaniel) who came out on top in the 170th running of the Prix de Diane Longines, this Sunday at Chantilly. 


Owner Samuel De Barros’ filly, trained in Chantilly by Francis-Henri Graffard and ridden by Pierre-Charles Boudot gamely held off the strong attack of Commes (Le Havre), one of four runners in the race trained by Jean-Claude Rouget. Grand Glory closed strongly to take third place under Gérald Mossé, who himself has won this race on five occasions.

Etoile (Siyouni) was placed fourth ahead of Cala Tarida (Garswood) trained by Frédéric Rossi near Marseilles. The favourite for the race, Siyarafina (Pivotal), owned by His Highness the Aga Khan, only managed to take sixth place.

It is a first victory in the Prix de Diane Longines for Pierre-Charles Boudot, Francis-Henri Graffard and Samuel De Barros, owner of Channel. And what’s more! Samuel de Barros, whose wife, Elodie Mangeard de Barros comes from a stud renowned for producing trotters, has only one racehorse in training!


----


Le Prix de Diane Longines is a Group 1 race, the highest level in horse racing, and is open to fillies only.

Run over a distance of 10 and a half furlongs and offering a purse of one million euros, 571,400 euros of which go to the winner, it crowns the season’s champion three-year-old filly.

The race has produced many great horses over the years, and as in previous seasons, the 2019 winner will have every chance of lining up in the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, held later in the year at ParisLongchamp.

Longines is also showcasing the best young jockeys from over ten countries in the Prix Longines Future Racing Stars.

Run over 9 furlongs at Chantilly, it is a race known for revealing the champion horses of tomorrow, while the Championnat du Monde Longines Fegentri crowns the best rider season after season.

5 An outstanding concert in 2019

AN AMAZING CONCERT

Clara Luciani, named “On-stage Revelation” at the 2019 Victoires de la Musique, will perform a concert at the Prix de Diane Longines!


This young brunette has a deep, self-assured voice. She wrote all the  songs for her first album, whose 14 tunes shoot into your heart like  flaming arrows. Clara Luciani has a talent for song writing, translating  her personal story into a universal value.

Her writing is akin  to that of the passionate singers she grew up listening to, from  Françoise Hardy, Barbara, Blondie and Nico right up to Lana del Rey.  


Clara.jpg

Oscillating between cat-like and passionate (Eddy, Monstre d’Amour) and  introspective and elusive (Les Fleurs, Dors, On ne Meurt pas d’Amour,  Mon ombre), feminine and feminist (La Grenade, Drôle d’Epoque, Nue) and  vindictive and vehement (La Dernière Fois, Comme toi), this young  singer-songwriter certainly has character.

Clara Luciani has been  working her socks off on the road for the last two years, performing  more than 200 concerts, which were all sold out.
Her nomination for  the 2019 Victoires de la Musique, in the “On-stage Revelation” category,  was a just reward for all her hard work.

Though she refuses to  be a woman of her time, she is certainly a modern woman. After following  in her elders’ footsteps, Clara Luciani is now reaching the top of her  game and is ready to make her mark on new French pop. Now, that will be a  real victory for music…

These classic timepieces, whose elegance is emblematic of the well-known watchmaking brand, have been certified as “chronometers” by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), which testifies to their precision.
 
The model featured on 16th June is a steel and pink gold watch with a white mother-of-pearl dial adorned with diamond indexes.
This piece is the perfect match for the elegant Prix de Diane Longines event.
 
The Record collection also includes a number of men’s watches.
 
Spectators will have the opportunity to admire – or even purchase – the official watch and various other timepieces in our Longines boutique, which will be set up in the heart of Diane’s Village.
 
This degree of excellence deserves recognition.
As a mark of their high precision, all of the pieces in the Record collection have been certified as “chronometers” by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute).
 
Equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement, each piece has been checked by this neutral and independent organisation and they all have the “CHRONOMETER” certification stamped on their dial.
 
Enhanced with this high added value, these certified “chronometers” are truly exceptional timepieces.

4 Chantilly Racecourse


CHANTILLY RACECOURSE


THE WORLD’S LARGEST TRAINING GROUND FOR THOROUGHBRED IS IN FRANCE


Chantilly’s training centre, which is managed by France Galop and located just a few miles outside of Paris, is the only centre of its kind in the world. Bright and early every morning, more than 2,500 racehorses head out to train on the centre’s 2,000 hectares of gallops. 


This magnificent sight is orchestrated by 110 trainers and 1,000 exercise riders.

THE CHARMS OF THE CHANTILLY ESTATE

Less than an hour’s drive outside of Paris, the Chantilly Estate houses treasures that have been passed down its line of illustrious owners: Anne, Duke of Montmorency, the Bourbon-Condé lineage, Henri d’Orléans, Duke of Aumale. The château is home to the Condé Museum and its collection of paintings, among which are masterpieces by Raphaël, Botticelli, Clouet, Poussin, Watteau, Ingres, Delacroix. Inside the château, the Cabinet des Livres library boasts 13,000 books, including the world’s most precious manuscript: Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry (15th century)!

The estate’s 115 hectares of grounds are unique thanks to the hugely diverse gardens. The Grandes Écuries, a masterpiece of 18th century architecture, are among the most luxurious stables in the world. Inside, the Horse Museum gives an insight into the relationship between man and horse, while the team of 20 horses and 7 riders give performances all year round.
