On June 16, 1942, the Reichspost issued a stamp to commemorate the 74th anniversary of the “German Derby” horse race. The German Derby is an annual race for three-year-old colts and fillies, run at Hamburg-Horn over a distance of 2,400 meters (about 1½ miles). The German Derby became known as the "Grosser Deutschlandpreis der Dreijahrigen" um "Das Blaue Band" (the "Greater Germany Sweepstakes of Three-year-olds" in "The Blue Ribbon" race). The 1942 race was won by a horse called “Ticino” ridden by German jockey Otto Schmidt.
