THE EMIRATES POULES D'ESSAI

/ The Emirates Poule d'Essai des Poulains

THE FIRST CHAPTER OF THE STORY


The Emirates Poule d’Essai des Poulains is the first Group 1 race of the year for 3-year-old colts and is run over a mile.

The equivalent of the 2000 Guineas Stakes, this event is the younger generation’s first taste of the big-time!
In this first challenge of the season, the colts demonstrate whether they have the potential to dazzle over the longer distance of a mile and 2 ½ furlongs in the Qipco Prix du Jockey Club or whether they will stay as milers.

It is an important crossroads in the season, the first chapter of a story that will run until October.

/ The Emirates Poule d'Essai des Pouliches

THE FIRST BIG TEST OF THE SEASON


An important race in view of the Prix de Diane Longines, the Emirates  Poule d’Essai des Pouliches is reserved for 3-year-old fillies and is  run over the mile distance.

The first big test of the season for these fillies, this race is decisive for the rest of the season! Only 25 winners of the Emirates Poule d’Essai des Pouliches have managed the double with the Prix de Diane Longines, making them the queens of their generation.
