The Oettingen-Rennen is a Group 2 flat horse race in Germany which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Baden-Baden over a distance of 1,600 metres (about 1 mile), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late August or early September.

The event was formerly called the Badener Meile, and this was changed to the present title in 1970. For a period the Oettingen-Rennen was classed at Group 3 level. Its current sponsor, Darley Stud, began supporting the race in 1999. It was promoted to Group 2 status in 2003.
