The Grand Prix de Chantilly is a Group 2 flat horse race in France open to thoroughbreds aged four years or older. It is run at Chantilly over a distance of 2,400 metres (about 1½ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late May or early June.
The event replaced the Grand Prix d'Evry, a race established when Evry Racecourse opened in 1973. It was run each year until the venue closed in 1996, and the present version was introduced at Chantilly in 1997.
The leading horses from the Grand Prix de Chantilly often go on to compete in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud. The last to win both in the same year was Ange Gabriel in 2003.
The Grand Prix de Chantilly is now staged on the same day as the Prix du Jockey Club.

Famous quotes containing the word grand:
“The allurement that women hold out to men is precisely the allurement that Cape Hatteras holds out to sailors: they are enormously dangerous and hence enormously fascinating. To the average man, doomed to some banal drudgery all his life long, they offer the only grand hazard that he ever encounters. Take them away, and his existence would be as flat and secure as that of a moo-cow.”
