The Prix Cléopâtre is a Group 3 flat horse race in France open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run over a distance of 2,100 metres (about 1 mile and 2½ furlongs) at Saint-Cloud in May.

History[edit]

Named after Cleopatra, the event was established at Saint-Cloud in 1952. The first running was won by Marche Lorraine.

The race was temporarily switched to Maisons-Laffitte in 1990. It was staged at Évry in 1991. It returned to Saint-Cloud in 1992.

The Prix Cléopâtre sometimes serves as a trial for the Prix de Diane. The last horse to win both races was Pawneese in 1976.
