HistoryEdit

The event is named in memory of Charles d'Hédouville (1809–1890), a long-serving member of the Société d'Encouragement. It was established in 1890, and was originally held at Chantilly. It was initially open to horses aged three or older and contested over 2,000 metres.[2]

The race was abandoned throughout World War I, with no running from 1915 to 1918. It was staged at Longchamp in 1919 and 1920,[3] and returned to Chantilly in 1921.[4] It was cancelled in 1940, and took place at Le Tremblay in 1943 and 1944.[5]

The event was extended to 2,400 metres in 1954, and cut to 1,800 metres the following year. Its original length was restored in 1957, and it reverted to 2,400 metres in 1962. It was discontinued in 1965.

The Prix d'Hédouville was relaunched as a three-year-olds' race in 1972. The first two editions were held at Longchamp, and the final running was at Chantilly in 1974.

The present format of the Prix d'Hédouville was introduced in 1978. From this point it was run at Longchamp, and restricted to horses aged four or older. It was given Group 3 status in 1985.
