History

The event has been known by several different titles, and some of these have been assigned to various other races. It was called the Schwarzgold-Rennen from 1995 to 1998, and during this period it was ungraded. It was renamed the Schlenderhaner Stutenpreis in 1999, and given Listed status in 2000.

The race was retitled the Fährhofer Stutenpreis in 2001, and promoted to Group 3 level in 2004. It was subsequently registered as the Hamburger Stutenpreis, and later the Hamburger Stutenmeile.

Alternative titles have included the Alice-Cup (2006), the Credit Suisse-Rennen (2007), the Preis der Spielbank Hamburg (2008–09) and the Wenatex Europa-Grupperennen (2010). It was run at Bremen as the Walther J. Jacobs-Stutenmeile in 2011.

The Hamburger Stutenmeile is currently run in memory of Franz-Günther von Gaertner, a former president of the Hamburger Renn-Club.
