The Prix d'Hédouville is a Group 3 flat horse race in France which is open to thoroughbreds aged four years or older. It is run at Longchamp over a distance of 2,400 metres (about 1½ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in April or May.

The event is named in memory of Charles d'Hédouville (1809–1890), a long-serving member of the Société d'Encouragement, a former governing body of French racing. It was originally held at Chantilly, and it was first run on May 25, 1890, the same day as the Prix de Diane. In the early part of its history the Prix d'Hédouville was open to horses aged three or older, and it was contested over 2,000 metres. The race was abandoned throughout World War I, with no running from 1915 to 1918. For the two years thereafter it was temporarily switched to Longchamp, and it returned to Chantilly in 1921.

During World War II the Prix d'Hédouville was cancelled once, in 1940, and it was transferred to Le Tremblay in 1943 and 1944. Its distance was extended to 2,400 metres for the 1954 running, and this was cut to 1,800 metres the following year. The original length, 2,000 metres, was restored in 1957, and this was increased to 2,400 metres in 1962.

The Prix d'Hédouville was discontinued in 1965 due to the low number of participants it had attracted during the previous decade. It reappeared at Longchamp in September 1972 as a race for three-year-olds only, but this version was run only twice more, ending at Chantilly in 1974. The event was relaunched at Longchamp in the spring of 1978, and it was now restricted to horses aged four or over. It was promoted to Group 3 status in 1985.
