The Prix Omnium II is a Listed flat horse race in France which is open to three-year-old Thoroughbred colts and geldings. It is run at Saint-Cloud over a distance of 1,600 metres (about 1 mile), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late March or early April.

The event is named after Omnium II, a successful racehorse in France during the 1890s, and the country's leading sire in 1902.

The Prix Omnium II sometimes serves as a trial for the Poule d'Essai des Poulains, and the last horse to win both races was Silver Frost in 2009.
