The Prix Ganay is run over 2100m. It was first run in 1889 and was won by Acheron.
The Prix Ganay was originally known as the Prix des Sablons at 2000m and wasn't held during WWI.
Named after Jean de Ganay, it was a Group 1 from the 1971 outset of the grading system.
It is an early season guide to the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe .
