A field of sixteen 2-year-old fillies went 1600 meters for a purse of €300,000 ($414,000 U.S.) in the Total Prix Marcel Boussac Criterium des Pouliches (G1). 7-2 Marquesa led the field down the backstretch and around the turn. Into the stretch, Marquesa stubbornly held the lead but 28-1 Proportional, who had stalked her the whole way, passed her at the 3/16 pole and drew away to win by 3 lengths over 7-1 Elusive Wave, who in turn was just 3/4 length in front of late running 2-1 favorite Copperbeech third. The running time was 1:36.00.
