The Prix Maurice de Gheest is a Group 1 race run under Weight For Age conditions for three year olds and up at Deauville conducted by France Galop.
The Prix Maurice de Gheest is run over 1300m. It was first run in 1922 and was won by Zariba.
This is the first of sprint races of the season and only one of three sprints for open class horses during the French racing year.
It was named after Maurice de Gheest who was part of the Deauville race course committee.
When grading was introduced in 1971, it was a Group 3. In 1980 it was a G2 and from 1995 became a G1.
The race was not run in 1940 during WWII and a few times afterwards. In those war years it was run at Maisons-Laffitte and Auteuil.
In the last decade only two three year olds have won and they were good ones – Moonlight Cloud and Muhaarar.
Both Marchand d’Or and Moonlight Cloud have three wins apiece.
Freddy Head has most training victories with seven including those two horses.
Most wins as a jockey is four by both Lester Piggott and Gerald Mosse.
The last non-French winner was Brando in 2017 for Kevin Ryan.
The Prix Maurice de Gheest is worth €380,000 in 2019.
