The Prix de Meautry is a Group 3 flat horse race in France open to thoroughbreds which are three-years-old or above. It is run over a distance of 1,200 metres (approximately 6 furlongs) at Deauville Racecourse, and it takes place annually in August.

First run in 1877, it is one of the oldest sprint races in France. It is named after the stud farm Haras de Meautry, which is located in Touques, nearby to Deauville. This farm was established in 1875 and has been continually owned by members of the Rothschild family.

The distance of the Prix de Meautry was originally set at 900 metres. This was increased to 1,000 metres in 1887 and to its present length, 1,200 metres, in 1921.

The event was abandoned throughout and beyond the duration of World War I, with no race taking place from 1913 to 1919. The only subsequent cancellation was during World War II in 1940. For the remainder of this war, while its regular venue was closed, the race was switched temporarily between Maisons-Laffitte (1941–43, 1945) and Longchamp (1944). The distance of the Longchamp running was 1,300 metres. The Prix de Meautry has otherwise always taken place at Deauville.

The fastest winning time over its usual distance is 1m 09.0s, recorded by both King of Macedon in 1979 and Maximova in 1983.
