The Poule d’Essai des Poulains is a Group 1 race run under Set Weight conditions for three year old colts at Longchamp conducted by France Galop.
The Poule d’Essai des Poulains is run over 1600m. It was first run in 1883 and was won by Regain.
The Poule d’Essai des Poulains is the French 2000 Guineas and the equivalent of the English version run the week prior.
Originally there was just the Poule d’Essai for both colts and fillies from as far back as 1840 but after some changes the fillies only Pouliches had their own race. Giges won that first running.
It was cancelled for WWI and while there were some replacement races they were not known as the Guineas.
During WWII the race was run at Le Tremblay and Maisons-Laffitte.
When grading started it was a Group 1 and it follows for the colts to head onto the Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby). Brametot did the double in 2017.
When Longchamp was out of action for its huge redevelopment, the race was run at Deauville in 2016 and 2017.
Most wins as a jockey is by Freddy Head with six while leading trainer is with Robert Denman with an incredible 11 successes.
Faraway Son and River Mist lost on protest while Noverre was disqualified after a positive swab.
The last non-French winner was The Gurkha in 2016 for Aidan O’Brien.
The Poule d’Essai des Poulains is worth €600,000 in 2019.
