Since 1869, the German Derby has been taking place in Hamburg. A long tradition that will continue in 2017. The most important and tense race of the year in the German Turf promises excitement and gallop at its finest. After all, a race horse can only win this race once in his lifetime: at the age of three. Not every horse is allowed to run and only the best will qualify. The history of the Derby is not just one of the most important race in the German thoroughbred breeding and racing but it is also part of our cultural history. It survived two world wars, yet it had to take place outside of Hamburg 5 times; in Berlin-Grunewald in 1919, in Berlin-Hoppegarten in 1943 and 1944, in Munich-Riem in 1946 and in Cologne in 1947.
