OIn August 1944, the Reichspost issued two stamps to celebrate the ‘Grosser Preis von Wien’ Horse Race (Grand Prix of Vienna) that would take place at the Freudenau race track in Vienna. The 1½ mile (2,400 m) race was first run in 1868 and was for three-year-old horses. The race course was located in the Vienna suburb of Freudenau. The track complex is characterized by fine-lined cast iron architecture and has five grandstands. The race this year was won by a German horse called ‘Nordlicht’, ridden by the legendary Berliner jockey Otto Schmidt (1896-1964). Schmidt was one of the most successful German jockeys in the history of horseracing with more than 2218 race victories, 14 Championships and seven German Derby victories.
