The $457,000 Prix de France over 2,100 meters is scheduled at Vincennes on Sunday’s (Feb. 13) race card and Prix d’Amérique winner Davidson du Pont will chase his second trophy in the prestigious race. He won the Prix de France in 2020.

Nine trotters gather behind the gate while six horses will begin in second line and Davidson du Pont will start from post 8 behind the car.

Prix de France 2022 features 14 horses that raced Prix d’Amérique and the only trotter that is ”new” is Fakir du Lorault.

Title defender Delia du Pommereux (disarmed Face Time Bourbon over the stretch in last year’s edition of Prix de France) hasn’t showed the best form this season but she is still in the race on Sunday and there are several horses that are favored by the shorter distance, compared to Prix d’Amérique.
