The Prix de Malleret is a Group 2 flat horse race in France open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at Saint-Cloud over a distance of 2,400 metres (about 1½ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late June.

History[edit]

The event is named after Malleret, the location of a former stud farm in the Médoc region of France. The original version was a 1,600-metre race for three-year-olds of either gender.

A new version restricted to fillies was established in 1907. It was initially contested over 2,000 metres at Longchamp. It served as a consolation for fillies defeated in the Prix de Diane. It was abandoned throughout World War I, with no running from 1915 to 1918.

The Prix de Malleret was cancelled once during World War II, in 1940. It was staged at Maisons-Laffitte in 1943 and 1944.

The present system of race grading was introduced in 1971, and for a period the Prix de Malleret held Group 3 status. It was promoted to Group 2 level in 1977.

The Prix de Malleret was extended to 2,400 metres in 1987. It was transferred to Saint-Cloud in 2001. It is currently run on the same day as the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud.
