The Longines Gran Premio Latinoamericano is the only horserace in the world which changes its venue from year to year, being held at a host track in a Member Country of the Latin American Association of Jockey Clubs and Racecourses. In 2020, the Longines Gran Premio Latinoamericano will be hosted in Argentina, and, in 2021, in the United States of America.
The logistics of international horse movements for this race are complex. Competing horses have to arrive at the staging country at least seven days before the day of the race. Movements should preferably take place through direct freight flights, and any delay at Customs should be avoided, so as not to interfere with the pre-race training of competing horses and also to limit unnecessary stress (see the article Practical challenges to the international movement of sport horses). Within two or three days of the race’s completion, competing horses return to their country of origin. However, flights on the necessary routes that are adequately equipped to transport horses can be scarce and the costs of air transport are extremely high.
The South American Organization for the Promotion of Thoroughbreds (OSAF) has successfully developed various approaches to facilitate the movement of racehorses.
