Hello, and welcome to Anglo German Racing

On this site, we endeavour to cover all aspects of horse racing in Germany. We tell you about the top horses, the top jockeys, the top trainers. There’s also an in-depth look at the courses, from the major international tracks like Baden-Baden and Cologne right through to smaller places like Saarbruecken and Lebach in the south west of the country.

The reason for setting this site up is to introduce German horse racing to a non-German speaking audience. Racing in Germany has a lot to offer, however international press coverage can be limited. The ‘Sport-Welt’ newspaper, Germanys answer to the Racing Post, is an excellent publication with everything the racing fan needs, but is only available in German. Likewise, Galopponline is a fantastic information resource with all the very latest new about racing in Germany, but once again is only available in German, and although this website won’t offer the same content as Sport-Welt and Galopponline, our aim is to educate and familiarise non-German speaking people with German horse racing.

On our News section, catch up with all the latest from the racing world in Germany. Not only that, we also cover the top meetings in the country with our correspondents at major events like the ‘Grosse Woche’ at Baden-Baden and the German Derby meeting at Hamburg right through to the smaller meetings in the south west of the country.

In the Interviews section, we aim to speak to some of the biggest names in German racing. Find out how they got involved in racing, what their role involves and what motivates them.

Germany has a racing phenomenon unique to the country – Lake Races, or ‘Seejagdrennen’ as they are known in their native language. These steeplechases, generally run over distances around 3600 metres (2 miles 2 furlongs) involve the horses going through a lake halfway round the course. Lake Races are currently held at three courses in Germany – Bad Harzburg, Hamburg and Quackenbrueck.

Finally, I would like to say thank you for visiting the website, and I hope you enjoy your time reading it!
