The 2018 Longines World's Best Racehorse and Longines World's Best Horse Race Ceremony will be held on 23 January 2019 in London, England. For the first time, Longines and the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA) have selected The Landmark as the host site.

The ceremony, now in its sixth year, will honour the three highest-rated horses in the Longines World's Best Racehorse Rankings as well as the Longines World's Best Horse Race.  In the previous edition, Arrogate (USA) was celebrated as the Longines World's Best Racehorse, while the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, which was won by Enable (GB), won the title of Longines World's Best Horse Race.

The Longines World's Best Racehorse Rankings are established by international handicappers according to the performance of the horses in top races. The highest rated race is determined by averaging the rankings of the first four placed horses. The full list and further information on the Longines World's Best Racehorse Rankings are both available on the IFHA website http://www.ifhaonline.org.

The trophy celebrating the Longines World's Best Racehorse is a crystal vase named Equus, whereas the Longines World's Best Horse Race trophy represents a proud horse head. Every year, the trophies are engraved with the name of the Longines World's Best Racehorse and Horse Race respectively, and the representatives of the winners are presented with an elegant Longines watch.
