Prix Saint-Alary

The Prix Saint-Alary is a Group 1 flat horse race in France open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run over a distance of 2,000 metres (approximately 1¼ miles) at Longchamp Racecourse and takes place annually in May.

It was first run in 1960 and was named in honour of Evremond de Saint-Alary (1868–1941), a leading racehorse owner and breeder in France.

The race is a trial for the Prix de Diane, which usually takes place three weeks later at Chantilly. Nine fillies have won both races, including Indian Skimmer, to date the only foreign trained winner of the Prix Saint-Alary.
