The Prix Herod is a Listed flat horse race in France open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at Chantilly over a distance of 1,400 metres (about 7 furlongs), and it is scheduled to take place each year in November.

History[edit]

The event was established in 1930, and it was originally held at Le Tremblay.[1] It was initially the first leg of a two-part series called the Prix Biennal Herod-Matchem. The second leg, for three-year-olds, was the Prix Matchem. The two parts were named after Herod and Matchem, foundation sires in the 18th century.

The early editions of the Prix Herod were contested over 1,400 metres. It was transferred to Évry in 1973, and from this point its distance was 1,600 metres.

The race was run at Saint-Cloud over 1,500 metres in 1997. For a period thereafter it was staged at Maisons-Laffitte over 1,400 metres. It was switched to Deauville in 2002, and shortened to 1,300 metres in 2004.

The Prix Herod moved to Longchamp and reverted to 1,400 metres in 2005. It was transferred to Chantilly in 2012. Prior to 2015 it took place in October.
