The Prix Omnium II is a Listed flat horse race in France open to three-year-old thoroughbred colts and geldings. It is run over a distance of 1,600 metres (about 1 mile) at Saint-Cloud in late March or early April.

History[edit]

The event was originally called the Prix de Saint-Cloud. The first running was staged during the venue's inaugural fixture in 1901.[2] It replaced the Prix de Vincennes, a similar race at Vincennes.[3] It was initially contested over 2,100 metres.[4]

The Prix de Saint-Cloud was cut to 2,000 metres in 1904.[5] It was shortened to 1,600 metres after World War I.[6] It continued with its original title until 1927.[7]

The race was renamed in honour of Omnium II, a successful racehorse and sire, in 1928.[8] It was run over 2,100 metres in 1929. From this point it was held on the same day as the Prix La Camargo, the equivalent race for fillies.[9] It reverted to 1,600 metres in 1930.[10]

The Prix Omnium II was held at Longchamp in 1940.[11] It took place at Auteuil from 1941 to 1944.[12]

The event can serve as a trial for the Poule d'Essai des Poulains. The last horse to win both races was Silver Frost in 2009.
