The first race was held in Hungary in 1883.

The greatest Hungarian Horses may not be necessary to introduce, but would like to highlight three of them known so well all around the world the past 200 years with the Hungarian thoroughbred and totter breeding horses. Folks of  to-day have not seen the most distinguished race won by Kibér at the Epson Derby in  1876. Kincsem was the only horse int he world who was never beaten in 54 races. During the period of her golden age she met the cream of Europe and  no hard other horses  raced they could not beat her int he Austro_Hungarian Monarchy, England or France. The Imperial a.k.a. „The Chestnut Charger” as the most successful Hungarian  breed int he 20th century. He was able to win  2 Derby’s, one in Budapest and in the other race in  Austria in 1963.
