Badener Meile

The Badener Meile is a Group 3 flat horse race in Germany which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Iffezheim Racecourse, Baden-Baden, over a distance of 1,600 metres (about 1 mile), and it is scheduled to take place each year in May.

The event was established in 1979, although its title, "Badener Meile", had been used previously for what is now the Oettingen-Rennen. The race was initially restricted to horses aged four or older, but its minimum age was lowered to three in 1985.
