The Prix de la Salamandre was a Group 1 flat horse race in France open to two-year-old thoroughbred colts and fillies. It was run at Longchamp over a distance of 1,400 metres (about 7 furlongs), and it was scheduled to take place each year in September.

History[edit]

The event was established in 1872, and it was originally held at Chantilly. For a period it was staged in October.[1]

The race was transferred to Longchamp in 1907. That year's running was contested over 1,600 metres, and had prize money of 10,000 francs.[2] It was cut to 1,400 metres and increased to 15,000 francs in 1908.[3]

The present system of race grading was introduced in 1971, and the Prix de la Salamandre was classed at Group 1 level.

The race was last run in 2000. It was discontinued after France Galop restructured its Group 1 program for two-year-olds in 2001.
