The Prix de Ris-Orangis is a Group 3 flat horse race in France open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Maisons-Laffitte over a distance of 1,200 metres (about 6 furlongs), and it is scheduled to take place each year in July.

History[edit]

The event was established in 1970, and it was initially called the Prix d'Évry. It was named after a new racecourse under construction at Évry. The first running was held at Saint-Cloud. It was originally a 1,600-metre race for horses aged four or older, and it took place in early spring.

The Prix d'Évry was transferred to Maisons-Laffitte and given Group 3 status in 1971.

The race moved to Évry when the venue opened in 1973. At this point it was renamed after Ris-Orangis, a commune in which part of the racecourse was situated.

The Prix de Ris-Orangis was cut to 1,200 metres, switched to July and opened to three-year-olds in 1987. It was transferred to Deauville in 1997.

The race was staged at Maisons-Laffitte in 2006. It returned to Deauville in 2007, moved back to Maisons-Laffitte in 2009 and was run at Deauville again in 2013 and 2014 before returning to Maisons-Laffitte in 2015.
