History

The event was created in 1921 by Deauville's governing body at that time, the Société d'Encouragement. This organisation had taken over the duties of the Société des Courses de Deauville upon the death of its chairman Jacques Le Marois the previous year. The race was named after the nearby commune of Cabourg, which, like Deauville, is in the Calvados department of France. For the first part of its history it was contested over 1,200 metres.

Deauville Racecourse was closed during World War II, and the Prix de Cabourg was not run from 1940 to 1945. Its distance was cut to 900 metres for the 1955 running, and this was followed by a period of frequent changes. For brief spells its length was 1,000 metres (1956–57, 1961–64), 1,200 metres (1958–1960), 1,400 metres (1965–1970) and 1,300 metres (1971). The present distance, a return to 1,200 metres, was introduced in 1972.

The Prix de Cabourg was formerly classed at Listed level. It was promoted to its current status, Group 3, in 1988. The race has been held at Deauville throughout its history.
