New York, NY, June 11, 2019 – Swiss watch brand Longines was proud to return as the Official Partner and Timekeeper of the 151st Belmont Stakes, timing Sir Winston’s impressive win at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York on Saturday, June 8, 2019.
Sir Winston’s jockey Joel Rosario and his mount navigated a field of impressive contenders, surging past Tacitus and War of Will down the stretch on the outside to take the victory. Earlier that day, Rushing Fall, ridden by Javier Castellano, claimed the 2019 Longines Just a Game Stakes. Longines U.S. Brand President Pascal Savoy joined the winning teams after each race to personally present Longines timepieces to each jockey, owner, and trainer in recognition of their skillful performances.
