The German 1,000 Guineas is a Group 2 flat horse race in Germany open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at Düsseldorf over a distance of 1,600 metres (about 1 mile), and it is scheduled to take place each year in June.
It is Germany's equivalent of the 1,000 Guineas Stakes, a famous race in England.
The event was established in 1919, and it was originally called the Kisasszony-Rennen. It was initially held at Grunewald, and it moved to Hoppegarten in 1923.
The race was renamed the Schwarzgold-Rennen in 1941, in honour of the previous year's winner Schwarzgold. It was cancelled in 1945 and 1946, and it was staged at Cologne and Krefeld in the two years thereafter. It was transferred to Düsseldorf in 1949.
The present system of race grading was introduced in Germany in 1972, and the Schwarzgold-Rennen was classed at Group 3 level. It was promoted to Group 2 status in 1985. The race became known as the ARAG-Preis in 1989, and as the Henkel-Rennen in 1997. It has been run under several different titles since 2006.
