WHERE RACING HISTORY IS WRITTEN.

course1.jpg

The QIPCO Prix du Jockey Club is reserved for the year's best 3-year-olds, which means that the four-hoofed champions only have one crack at  winning the title!


With prize money of 1.5 million Euros, this Group I race crowns the year's fastest thoroughbred and is one of the year's most selective races!


The race was first held in 1836  and is run over a distance of a mile and 2 ½ furlongs, with a 3-furlong uphill home straight.


Since 2005, when the QIPCO Prix du Jockey-Club came over the  distance of 2,100m, only two horses before Brametot had managed to win  both "Poule d’Essai – Prix du Jockey Club" : Shamardal in 2005, Lope de  Vega in 2010 and Brametot in 2017".

course2.jpg


Following an epic struggle Study of Man gave trainer Pascal Bary a sixth win in the Qipco Prix du Jockey Club and a first win to his jockey Stéphane Pasquier in one of the most important horserace of the season.


Stéphane Pasquier is consequently the winner of the third step of Epiqe series, the championship circuit made up of the 14 top horse races

What connections said:

Pascal Bary (trainer of Study of Man, 1st)

«He’s a fantastic colt and has it all in terms of pedigree and class. I’m speechless.”


Electra Niarchos (the owner of Study of Man, 1st)

« It’s a great relief He’s a fantastic horse with a lot of heart. He’s descended from Miesque and it’s a very special victory for everyone: Stephane (Pasquier), Pascal (Bary) and the stable. It’s always special to win these type of races and it’s a fabulous feeling. Deep Impact (winning sire) is an incredible stallion.”


Stéphane Pasquier (jockey de Study of Man, 1er)

« It’s incredible and he’s a super colt with a lot of heart. It wasn’t a race tailor-made for him as I had to make more use of him than ideal. He showed his fighting qualities to the very end as he’s better than the rest. It’s now full steam ahead to the Arc {de Triomphe)! »


Xavier Thomas Demeaulte (the trainer of Pastacoy, 2nd)

« The colt was hindered by the draw but his rider decided to make use of him and rode him very well. He’s a fighter and it proves that one can train group one winners at Mont-de-Marsan. Seen against the backdrop of a small stable finishing second in the Prix du Jockey Club, it’s some achievement.”


Tony Castanheira (trainer of Louis d’Or, 3rd)

«My voice is hoarse and it’s a sensational outcome as he has finished a good third. On his last outing in the Emirates Poule d’Essai des Poulains, he got hit, had a wide trip and lost a couple of shoes. It was a slap in the face for us but the owner never lost faith when it came to trusting us to do the right thing. It was better to judge him on his third place in the Prix de Fontainebleau. We believed strongly in him. »


Fabrice Chappet (the trainer of Intellogent, 4th)

« Intellogent ran very well and 2.100m is probably his limit but we are still happy with his race.»


Christophe Ferland (the trainer of Not Mine, 5th)

« The colt has run very well. He was tapped for speed on leaving the gates and backtracked as a result. However, he came back well and has finished with real gusto. We are over the moon regarding his performance.”

2 A BRIEF HISTORY

A BRIEF HISTORY

Since 1836, the Prix du Jockey Club has crowned the year's best 3-year-old racehorse!  

Prix-du-Jockey-Club-1960-CHARLOTTESVILLE-George-Moore---Alec-Head.jpg

1960 - Charlottesville - ©APRH


The Prix du Jockey Club dates right back to the start of French racing  history, when it quickly became known as a highly selective race that  played an important role in improving the thoroughbred breed.

Prix-du-Jockey-Club-1951-SICAMBRE-&-Jean-Stern-.jpg

1951 - Sicambre - ©APRH


From very early on it was won by some of history’s greatest champions, and since its creation in 1836 the race has brought more than a hundred stallions into the spotlight. 


Shortened from a mile-and-a-half to a mile and 2 ½ furlongs in 2005, the course has been tackled by the world’s very best racing champions and is considered to be one of Europe's best races for 3-year-olds. 


The record-holder for the most Prix du Jockey Club titles is Yves Saint-Martin, with an impressive nine victories to his name!

MONDAY 14TH MAY 2018:


Stage 1: Sunday 13th May at ParisLongchamp: The Emirates Poules d’Essai des Poulains


Since 2005, the QIPCO Prix du Jockey Club (Gr1) has been run over a mile and 2 ½ furlongs, not over a mile and a half like most other European derbies.

This makes it more likely to include 3-year-old colts who have already shown promise over a mile in The Emirates Poules d’Essai des Poulains (Gr1) at ParisLongchamp at the beginning of May.

Three colts have won both races in the last thirteen years: Shamardal (2005), Lope de Vega (2010) and Brametot (2017), left to right respectively in the photos.

5af9f66aeb21a_shamardal-lopedevega_olmedo.jpg


Brametot was trained by Jean-Claude Rouget and was representing French owner Gérard Augustin-Normand when he achieved this double win.

What is more, the winner of the latest edition of The Emirates Poules d’Essai des Poulains on 13th May at ParisLongchamp was Olmedo, a young colt who is part-owned by the same owner and trained by Jean-Claude Rouget.

5af9f39f093b0_18PouleOlmedo-scoopdyga.jpg

Olmedo - The Emirates Poule d'Essai des Poulains - Sunday 13rd may 2018 - ParisLongchamp



How did this first step to Chantilly go? Let’s just say that Olmedo did not completely close the door to any potential rivals.

The colt put in a startling burst of speed to take the laurels in The Emirates Poule d’Essai des Poulains. Antonio Caro and Gérard Augustin-Normand’s protégé blended into a group made up of US Navy Flag, who took control of the race before coming unstuck, Dice Roll, Hey Gaman and Wootton, then took the lead right at the end, leaving England’s Hey Gaman in second place, just a whisker ahead of Dice Roll, on the rails, with an unlucky Wootton in fourth.

Having had a bad start, Wootton found himself suddenly in the lead when, on the downhill, US Navy Flag was pulled up abruptly by his jockey Ryan Moore after he tripped. Olmedo was also hindered by this incident as he was hemmed in for a moment, though it might actually have been a blessing in disguise.

We will add more to this section as we chat to the professionals who have confirmed their intention to take part.

OFFICIAL PARTNER OF THE QIPCO PRIX DU JOCKEY CLUB


QIPCO Holding is a private, family run investment company, based in Doha and one of the leading investment companies in Qatar. 


Its diverse portfolio of interests includes horseracing, via its subsidiary companies, Qatar Bloodstock and Qatar Racing.

France Galop and QIPCO are delighted to announce that they have signed a sponsorship agreement for the Prix du Jockey Club, starting in 2017.

partenaire1.jpg

Already a partner of several important European races, QIPCO will now be sponsoring one of the major events in the French racing calendar for the very first time.

The QIPCO Prix du Jockey Club, which will be run at Chantilly racecourse on 3th June 2018, is one of the highest profile flat races on the French and international racing scene, and unveils the best 3-year-old racehorses every year.

It is also the third stage of the EpiqE Series, falling after the weekend of the Abu Dhabi Poule d’Essai des Poulains and Poule d’Essai des Pouliches, and just before the Prix de Diane Longines.

partenaire2.jpg

The QIPCO Prix du Jockey Club, which is run over a distance of a mile and 2 ½ furlongs, is the culmination of a highly demanding selection process and acts as a springboard up to the highest-profile events in the international racing calendar.

With a purse of €1.5 million (€857,000 of which is pocketed by the winner), the QIPCO Prix du Jockey Club is the second most richly-rewarded event in the French racing calendar, after the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

If the winner is born and bred in France or assimilated, their winnings swell to €1.4 million, making the QIPCO Prix du Jockey Club the derby with the highest winnings in Europe.

partenaire3.jpg

The QIPCO Prix du Jockey Club (first held in 1834) is a race that highlights the role played by heredity.

Darshaan  (winner in 1984), Peintre Célèbre (1997), Montjeu (1999), Dalakhani  (2003), Shamardal (2005), Le Havre (2009) and Lope de Vega (2010) − all winners of QIPCO Prix du Jockey Club in its old or new format − have all  become in-demand stallions that have made their mark on the breed Stud Book.

Various descendants of QIPCO Prix du Jockey Club winners have gone on to shine on the racecourse, such as Darshaan, Dalakhani and Reliable Man.

5 CHANTILLY RACECOURSE 

CHANTILLY, THE WORLD’S LARGEST TRAINING GROUND FOR THOROUGHBREDS IS IN FRANCE

Chantilly’s training centre, which is managed by France Galop and located just a few miles outside of Paris, is the only centre of its kind in the world. Bright and early every morning, more than 2,500 racehorses head out to train on the centre’s 2,000 hectares of gallops. This magnificent sight is orchestrated by 110 trainers and 1,000 exercise riders.

THE CHARMS OF THE CHANTILLY ESTATE

Less than an hour’s drive outside of Paris, the Chantilly Estate houses treasures that have been passed down its line of illustrious owners: Anne, Duke of Montmorency, the Bourbon-Condé lineage, Henri d’Orléans, Duke of Aumale. The château is home to the Condé Museum and its collection of paintings, among which are masterpieces by Raphaël, Botticelli, Clouet, Poussin, Watteau, Ingres, Delacroix. Inside the château, the Cabinet des Livres library boasts 13,000 books, including the world’s most precious manuscript: Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry (15th century)!

The estate’s 115 hectares of grounds are unique thanks to the hugely diverse gardens. The Grandes Écuries, a masterpiece of 18th century architecture, are among the most luxurious stables in the world. Inside, the Horse Museum gives an insight into the relationship between man and horse, while the team of 20 horses and 7 riders give performances all year round.
