Purchased from her Kentucky breeder by French art dealer Daniel Wildenstein, she became his first important horse and the spur for his substantial investment in racehorses and bloodstock. For his horses in France, Wildenstein operated Dayton Investments Limited. For those in the United States, he owned the Allez France Stables.
During her racing career from age two to five, Allez France was the preeminent filly in France. In 1974, under new trainer Angel Penna, Sr., Allez France went undefeated and won the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, France's most prestigious horse race. She was crowned French Horse of the Year.

As a six-year-old, Allez France was sent to race in the United States but, as was the case in other races outside of France, she did not do well. In 1976, she was retired as a broodmare to Lane's End Farm in Versailles, Kentucky.
Allez France was the dam of the successful sire Air De France (1984–2004), who sired 11 stakeswinners that had 34 stakes wins.
After her death, Allez France was honored by being buried next to Man O' War and other greats at the Kentucky Horse Park near Lexington, Kentucky.
