The Prix Vanteaux is a Group 3 flat horse race in France which is open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at Longchamp over a distance of 1,850 metres (about 1 mile and 1¼ furlongs), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late April or early May.

The event was established in 1868, and it was originally run over 2,000 metres. It was named in honour of the Vanteaux family, who were among France's first racehorse breeders. The family were based at the Saint-Jean-Ligoure stud farm, which was initially run by Gabriel de Vanteaux (1779–1854), and then continued by his son Psalmet de Vanteaux (1822–1893). The race was abandoned in 1871 because of the Franco-Prussian War.

The Prix Vanteaux was cancelled throughout World War I, with no running from 1915 to 1918. During World War II, in 1944 and 1945, it was temporarily switched to an alternative venue, Maisons-Laffitte. The race's original distance was maintained until it was cut to 1,950 metres in 1953, and this was modified several times during the 1960s. It was briefly changed to 1,850 metres (1963), 1,950 metres (1964) and 1,850 metres (1965–67), before a more sustained period over 1,900 metres began in 1968.

The European Pattern system for grading flat races, established in 1971, presently classes the Prix Vanteaux at Group 3 level. Its current distance, 1,850 metres, was introduced in 1987. The event sometimes serves as a trial for the Prix de Diane, and the most recent horse to win both races was Latice in 2004.
