The Prix Rothschild is a Group 1 race run under Weight For Age conditions for fillies and mares at Deauville conducted by France Galop.
The Prix Rothschild is run over 1600m. It was first run in 1929 and was won by Tivoli.
Being a mares race, the Prix Rothschild was originally the Prix d'Astarte with Astarte a fertility goddess.
