History

The event is named after Malleret, an estate in the Médoc region of France which was once the location of a successful stud farm. The original Prix de Malleret was open to three-year-old horses of either gender, and it was contested over 1,600 metres. The present version, for fillies only, was first run in 1907. Its venue at this time was Longchamp, and its distance was set at 2,000 metres. It served as a consolation for fillies defeated in the Prix de Diane. The race was abandoned throughout World War I, with no running from 1915 to 1918.

During World War II the Prix de Malleret was cancelled once, in 1940. It was switched to an alternative venue, Maisons-Laffitte, in 1943 and 1944.

For a single running in 1970 the Prix de Malleret's distance was cut to 1,950 metres. The present system of race grading was introduced in 1971, and the event was subsequently classed at Group 3 level. It was promoted to Group 2 status in 1977. Its length was extended to 2,400 metres in 1987, and it was transferred to its current venue, Saint-Cloud, in 2001. It is now held on the same afternoon as the track's most prestigious event, the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud.
