The Deutsches Derby is a Group 1 flat horse race in Germany open to three-year-old thoroughbred colts and fillies. It is run at Hamburg-Horn over a distance of 2,400 metres (about 1½ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in July.

It is Germany's equivalent of the Epsom Derby, a famous race in England.

History

The 144th edition of Deutsches Derby in 2013.

The event was established in 1869, and it was originally called the Norddeutsches Derby. It became known as the Deutsches Derby in 1889.

For most of its history the race has been held at Hamburg. It has also been staged at Grunewald (1919), Hoppegarten (1943–44), Munich (1946) and Cologne (1947). It was titled the Grosser Deutschlandpreis der Dreijährigen during World War II.

The present system of race grading was introduced in Germany in 1972, and the Deutsches Derby was given Group 1 status.

The race was sponsored by BMW from 1991 to 2008. It was backed by IDEE Kaffee from 2009 to 2011 and Sparda Bank from 2012 to 2014 before IDEE returned as sponsors from 2015.
