On the outskirts of Paris, Hippodrome Saint-Cloud was opened as a turf racecourse in 1901.
  Its principal races are the Criterium de Saint-Cloud, run each October, and the Group One Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud run in late June.


The Grand Prix is over 2400 metres and was first run in 1904, although this was at Maisons-Laffitte and Gouvernant was successful. In the most recent encounter Youmzain won when ridden by Richard Hughes and trained by Mick Channon.
  The Criterium de Saint-Cloud is for 2 year olds over 2000 metres and was won in the inaugural 1901 running by Illinois. In 2008 Johnny Murtagh partnered Fame & Glory to victory.
