German Thoroughbred Marketing is an organization established in 2009 to promote the German racing and breeding industries abroad. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the “Besitzervereinigung” (German Owners´ and Breeders´ Association) and shares their offices in the Direktorium building next to Cologne racecourse.

2010 saw the inaugural running of the Sweet Solera Stakes, when we sponsored this prestigious Group III event for the first time on the 07th August at Newmarkets July Course. All major British owners and breeders were invited and German Thoroughbred Marketing published a brochure together with our partners BBAG and Baden-Racing as well as eight leading German studs such as Auenquelle, Brümmerhof, Etzean, Fährhof, Hofgut Heymann, Hof Ittlingen, Röttgen and Görlsdorf. We are already working on next years sponsorship and are looking forward to a long-term involvement with the Headquarters of English Racing and to further spread the word about the merits of German breeding.

If you have not already received a copy of our brochure you are welcome to download it below. If you have any questions regarding German breeding, the German Thoroughbed or indeed racing and breeding in Germany please do not hesitate to contact us either by Email or Telephone. You will find all the necessary information under “contacts”.
