The Goldene Peitsche is a Group 3 flat horse race in Germany open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Baden-Baden over a distance of 1,200 metres (about 6 furlongs), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late August or early September.

History[edit]

The event was established in 1867, and the inaugural running was won by Cobweb. It was initially held at Tempelhof, and was transferred to Hoppegarten in 1868.

The race was switched to Grunewald in 1918, and it returned to Hoppegarten in 1923. It was not run from 1945 to 1947, and for brief spells thereafter it was staged at Cologne (1948) and Mülheim (1949, 1950 and 1952).

The Goldene Peitsche moved to Baden-Baden in 1953. It was given Group 3 status in 1973, and was promoted to Group 2 level in 1991. It was downgraded to Group 3 in 2014 only.[1] But returned Group 2 in 2015, during Sprint Races programme update.[2]
