The Prix Paul de Moussac is a Group 3 flat horse race in France open to three-year-old thoroughbred colts and geldings. It is run over a distance of 1,600 metres (approximately 1 mile) at Chantilly Racecourse, and it takes place annually in June.

It was first run in 1909 at Longchamp as the Prix de La Jonchere, named after the racehorse La Jonchere, winner of the Prix de Diane in 1877. Originally the race was contested over 1,400 metres and open to horses three-years-old and up.

The race was not run from 1915 to 1918 during World War I and was transferred to Tremblay from 1943 to 1945 due to World War II, but otherwise it remained at Longchamp until 1986. The distance was increased to 1,500 metres in 1966 and to its present length in 1971. The race was restricted to three-year-olds in 1972.

For several years after leaving Longchamp the venue frequently changed, with races at Chantilly (1987–89, 1991, 1993), Saint-Cloud (1990, 1992) and Maisons-Laffitte (1994). It returned to Longchamp for two runnings in the mid 1990s before switching in 1997 to its present home, Chantilly.

The race was re-named in 2006 to honour Paul de Moussac (1924–1995), a leading French racehorse owner and breeder.
