Prix du Jockey Club

Prix du Jockey Club
CHANTILLY  •  Chantilly race course,  •  Ongoing
The Prix du Jockey Club was created in 1836 and is among the most prestigious races in Europe. It is the chief ambition for trainers of the best 3-year old colts (and even some fillies). It is France’s second flat race after the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Alain Barrière. The majority of the thouroughbreds participating in the race are trained in France. In the last 47 meetings, over 80 % of the winners of the Prix du Jockey Club had been trained in Chantilly. And the winner is often one of the favourites at the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Lucien Barrière. The Prix du Jockey Club is a highlight of the racing world. Here the worlds of tradition and fashion fuse. Champagne and hats are de rigeur ! It is a favourite with the British too.
