The Prix de Barbeville is a Group 3 flat horse race in France open to thoroughbreds aged four years or older. It is run over a distance of 3,100 metres (about 1 mile and 7½ furlongs) at Longchamp in late April or early May.

History[edit]

The event is named after Haras de Barbeville, a successful stud farm established in the late 19th century. It was first run in 1889, and was originally contested over 3,000 metres.[2] It was initially restricted to horses aged five or older, and was opened to four-year-olds in 1905.

The race was abandoned throughout World War I, with no running from 1915 to 1919.

The Prix de Barbeville was held at Auteuil in 1943,[3] Maisons-Laffitte in 1944,[4] and Le Tremblay in 1945. It was shortened to 2,400 metres in 1953. It was run over 2,600 metres in 1956, and restored to 3,000 metres in 1957.

The race was contested at Saint-Cloud over 2,800 metres in 1963. It returned to Longchamp with a length of 3,100 metres in 1964. It was cut to 3,000 metres in 1965, and reverted to 3,100 metres in 1966.

The Prix de Barbeville was staged at Saint-Cloud over 2,900 metres in 1991. It was switched to Maisons-Laffitte with a distance of 3,100 metres in 1992. For the following three years it was run at Saint-Cloud over 2,900 metres (1993–94) and 3,100 metres (1995).

The event returned to Longchamp in 1996, and was initially contested over 3,000 metres. It was extended to 3,100 metres in 1997.
