Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère Race History

The Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère is Group I flat thoroughbred horse race run each year at the Longchamp Racecourse in Paris, France. Inaugurated in 1853 as the Grand Critérium, it is the oldest and most prestigious race in France for juvenile horses. The race was given its current name in 2003 to honor Jean-Luc Lagardère, an incredibly accomplished owner/breeder and former president of France Galop, the governing body of French horse racing.

Several notable horses have won the race, including American Champion Two-Year-Old Colt Arazi (1991), 2002 European Horse of the Year Rock of Gibraltar (2001) and 1963 1,000 Guineas winner Hula Dancer (1962). Currently two jockeys are tied for most wins with six: George Stern and Roger Poincelet.

As part of the Breeders' Cup "Win and You're In" Challenge Series, the winner automatically qualifies for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf.
