Each year, the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA) and LONGINES present to the jockey with the best performance in the world’s highest-rated races the LONGINES WORLD’S BEST JOCKEY AWARD.

The scoring for the award is based upon performances in the 100 highest-rated Group 1 and Grade 1 races established for the year by the LONGINES World’s Best Racehorse Rankings Committee. The scoring incorporates races from 1 December of the previous year until 30 November of the current year. Jockeys accrue 12 points for a win, 6 points for placing second, and 4 points for placing third.
