The Grosser Preis von Baden is a Group 1 flat horse race in Germany open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Baden-Baden over a distance of 2,400 metres (about 1½ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in early September.

History[edit]

The event was established in 1858, and it was originally contested over 3,200 metres. The inaugural running was part of a three-day festival which celebrated the opening of Baden-Baden's Iffezheim Racecourse.

The race was shortened to 2,800 metres in 1887. It was titled the Jubiläums-Preis on several occasions during the 1890s. Its distance was cut to 2,200 metres in 1894, and extended to 2,400 metres in 1898.

The Grosser Preis von Baden was staged at Hoppegarten from 1942 to 1944. It was not contested from 1945 to 1947, and it was known as the Grosser Preis von Iffezheim in 1948 and 1949.

The present system of race grading was introduced in Germany in 1972, and the Grosser Preis von Baden was classed at Group 1 level. It was run in two separate divisions in 1974.

The race has had several different sponsors since the mid-1990s, and these have included Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and Longines.

The Grosser Preis von Baden was added to the Breeders' Cup Challenge series in 2012. The winner now earns an automatic invitation to compete in the same year's Breeders' Cup Turf.[1]
