  • Entry (free of charge): Friday 22 September until 10:30am CET, to be made with France Galop according to the regular process. Horses that will not be entered will be automatically taken out of race, free of charge for their connections. There is no entry fee, payment will be incurred at the declaration stage only.
  • Forfeit (free of charge): Tuesday 26 September by 11:30am CET, to be made with France Galop

  • Final declaration (€500 per horse) and mount: Thursday 28 September by 12:30am to be made with France Galop.

Ballot out: The maximum number of runners is 18. Should a ballot be necessary, unraced horses will be balloted out first, followed by horses with the lowest earnings (except in claiming races and handicaps).

The race has attracted the sponsorship of Haras de Bouquetot, which will present the breeders of the first three horses home with a nomination to one of their best stallions:

  • Breeder of the winner: nomination to SHALAA
  • Breeder of the second home: nomination to OLYMPIC GLORY
  • Breeder of the third home: nomination to STYLE VENDOME

Finally, the runners’ connections as well as all the breeders, owners and trainers who qualified at least one horse for one of the first three qualification stages will be invited by ARQANA and Haras de Bouquetot to a buffet lunch in a private marquee on the day of the race.
