Status: 28.06.2021 3:15 p.m.

The derby meeting begins on Wednesday at the racecourse in Hamburg-Horn. A total of 42 races are on the program until Sunday.

1,000 spectators can attend each of the four days of the race – a big step back towards normality. The 152nd German Derby is the highlight and this time it will take place again on the first Sunday in July. “The derby lives from the spectators. That is why we are happy that at least some people are allowed on the track,” said Hans-Ludolf Mathiessen, chairman of the Hamburg racing club.

Last year the winner fell from his horse

Last year the ranks on the horse racing track were empty when jockey Ronan Thomas fell from his horse In Swoop after his Derby triumph during the small award ceremony and was luckily unharmed. The meeting had been slimmed down to a weekend with three racing days from Friday to Sunday. This year Wednesday is added: The meeting starts with the Long Hamburger over 3,200 m, the longest and oldest race of the traditional event.

The highlight of the German derby on Sunday

Among the 20 derby starters on Sunday, Lord Charming, named on Monday, is one of the favorites in the most important German horse race. The stallion is trained by Peter Schiergen and ridden by the Kazakh jockey Baujrschan Mursabajew. Dolcetto, Sea of ​​Sands and Alter Adler are also very popular as the first contenders for the coveted Blue Ribbon. Alter Adler was supposed to be ridden by Frenchman Cristian Demuro, but because he is still banned, his countryman Theo Bachelot is now in the saddle. The winner collects 390,000 euros, the race is endowed with a total of 650,000 euros.

However, several favorites canceled their participation: Best Of Lips, impressive winner of the Cologne Union race, sprained his ankle joint. In addition, Martial Eagle (slightly injured) from Gestüt Schlenderhan and Mythico (Stall tmb Oldenburg), which is to start on the shorter route in Munich, were deleted from the list.

Who will be Germany’s first “Gentle Rider”?

The “Gentle Rider” was awarded for the first time on a German racetrack. The jockey receives a prize that is fairest to horses and the competition.
