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

History[edit]

The event was established in 1957, and it was originally held at Gelsenkirchen and called the Aral-Pokal. The first three runnings were contested over 2,600 metres, and it was cut to 2,400 metres in 1960.

The present system of race grading was introduced in Germany in 1972, and the Aral-Pokal was initially classed at Group 2 level. It was promoted to Group 1 status in 1973.

The race became known as the Grosser Erdgas-Preis in 1998. It was transferred to Cologne in 2001, and from this point it was sponsored by Credit Suisse and titled the Credit Suisse Private Banking Pokal. It was renamed the Rheinland-Pokal, after the Rhineland region, in 2004. In 2012 it was transferred to Munich racecourse and renamed the Grosser Preis von Bayern.
