The Owner’s Message

The 2020 message from the owner of Berlin-Hoppegarten racecourse

Dear Madam/Sir,

In 2020 we are staging six Group races and six Listed races, with Germany’s premier extended distance race, the Comer Group International 49th Oleander-Rennen. This race can be the start of an exciting international campaign for the winner, as victory comes with an all-fees-paid entry in the Grade 2 $500,000 Belmont Gold Cup Invitational over two miles on Turf in New York and a free entry (for the first three) in the Group 1 Comer Group International Irish St. Leger on The Curragh.

The winner of our other Group 2, the Diana-Trial for three year old fillies over 2000 m on MAY 31st, also benefits from an all-fees-paid invitation to the $750,000 Grade 1 Belmont Oaks Invitational over 2000 m on Turf. This race is slotted 41 days after the Diana-Trial and 22 days before the Group 1 German Oaks allowing the Berlin winner to run in both races.

International visitors are always welcome. Treat your owners to a trip to Berlin – our attractive Owner and Trainer Benefits are designed to make your stay in Berlin and at Hoppegarten as comfortable and memorable as possible.

I invite you to come racing at one of Europe’s most historic tracks whilst enjoying Berlin’s wealth of cultural attractions and its many fine yet affordable hotels and restaurants. We hope to see you soon.

With kind regards,

Gerhard Schöningh
