The Prix Yacowlef is a Listed flat horse race in France which is open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at Deauville over a distance of 1,000 metres (about 5 furlongs), and it is scheduled to take place each year in early July.

Unusual for a Listed event, the Prix Yacowlef is contested by previously unraced horses. For most of its history, it has been run over its present distance of 1,000 metres, but from 1987 to 2004 this distance was extended to 1,200 metres. The race used to be held in early August. It was switched to its current time slot in the beginning of July, in 2005.
