It is run over the classic mile-and-a-half distance, just like the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, the world’s greatest horse race.
Competing in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud helps top horses to prepare for this important international race, which is held in the autumn at ParisLongchamp (Sunday 2nd October).

Races start at 1.25pm (10 races scheduled over the course of the day, every 30 minutes or so).

A brief history
It was back in 1874, after the Impressionist painters’ first exhibition in Paris, that the French public discovered this group of prominent artists: Monet, Renoir, Degas, Sisley and Pissarro. All but one of these artists painted in a brand-new way…outdoors.
Equipped with their easel and a picnic, the Impressionists explored the Ile-de-France, depicting fleeting moments, atmospheres, recreating the poetic truth of a given scene. Degas often recreated the atmosphere of the racecourse in his works, which are still admired today. The painters’ country picnics were an integral part of the movement and continue providing inspiration to this day.
