HistoryEdit

The event was established in 1866, and it was originally called the Coupe de Deauville. It was initially contested over 2,400 metres.

The race was renamed the Grand Prix de Deauville in 1871. It was opened to foreign horses in 1872, and was subsequently won by international contenders such as Kincsem and Tristan. Its distance was increased to 2,500 metres in 1886, and to 2,600 metres in 1903.

The event was known as the Grand Prix de Trouville-Deauville from 1908 to 1911. It was abandoned throughout World War I, with no running from 1914 to 1918.

The Grand Prix de Deauville was cancelled once during World War II, in 1940. For the remainder of this period, while its regular venue was closed, it was switched between Longchamp (1941–42, 1945), Maisons-Laffitte (1943) and Le Tremblay (1944). The Longchamp and Maisons-Laffitte editions were contested over 2,500 metres.

The race's distance was extended to 2,700 metres in 1973. Its present length, 2,500 metres, was introduced in 1990.
