History

The event was established in 1875, and it was originally called the Prix de l'Espérance. It took place in spring, and for many years it served as a trial for the Grand Prix de Paris.

The Prix de l'Espérance was abandoned throughout World War I, with no running from 1915 to 1918. There were no cancellations during World War II, but it was temporarily switched to Maisons-Laffitte in 1943, and to Le Tremblay in 1944 and 1945.

When the present system of race grading was introduced in 1971, the Prix de l'Espérance was initially classed at Group 3 level. It was promoted to its current status, Group 2, in 1987. At this point the race was moved to late June or early July, and it ceased to be a trial for the Grand Prix de Paris.

The race was given a new title, the Prix Hubert de Chaudenay, in 1990. This was in memory of Hubert de Chaudenay (1903–1989), a former president of the Société d'Encouragement, a governing body of racing in France. Hubert's father Jean had been similarly honoured by the naming of the Prix Jean de Chaudenay.

Towards the end of the 1990s the Prix Hubert de Chaudenay left its regular home for two runnings at Maisons-Laffitte. It returned to Longchamp in 1999, and it was moved to its present calendar position – the Saturday of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe weekend. The "Arc" itself takes place on the first Sunday in October. The Prix Hubert de Chaudenay was now a possible trial for the Prix Royal-Oak.

The race has been known by its present title, the Prix Chaudenay, since 2004. The Prix Jean de Chaudenay was discontinued that year, and the name of this event was shortened to honour both father and son, Jean and Hubert.
