The Baden Racing Stuten-Preis is a Group 3 flat horse race in Germany open to thoroughbred fillies and mares aged three years or older. It is run at Baden-Baden over a distance of 2,200 metres (about 1 mile and 3 furlongs), and it is scheduled to take place each year in August or September.

History[edit]

The event was formerly staged at Bremen, and it used to be called the Grosser Stutenpreis von Bremen. For a period it held Listed status, and it was promoted to Group 3 level in 2004.

The race was renamed in memory of Walther J. Jacobs (1907–1998), the founder of the successful stud farm Gestüt Fährhof, in 2005. It continued as the Walther J. Jacobs-Stutenpreis until 2010.

The event was transferred to Baden-Baden in 2011.[1] It was initially promoted as the Badener Diana-Revanche, but was subsequently renamed the Stuten-Preis von Baden. It became known as the Baden Racing Stuten-Preis in 2012.

The title "Walther J. Jacobs-Stutenpreis" is currently assigned to a different race, a Listed event at Bremen over 7 furlongs.[2]
