History

The event was established in 1859, and it was initially contested over 1,000 metres. It was extended to 1,200 metres in 1883.

The Zukunfts-Rennen was given Group 3 status in the 1970s, and it was promoted to Group 2 level in 1982. It was sponsored by Moët & Chandon from 1982 to 1996, and by Raab Karcher from 1997 to 1999.

Maurice Lacroix took over the sponsorship in 2000, and for a period the event was known as the Maurice Lacroix-Trophy. Its distance was increased to 1,400 metres in 2006, and the race returned to Group 3 level in 2007. The association with Maurice Lacroix ended in 2008.
