The Grand Prix de Paris, which, with additions to the prize-money, has become easily the most valuable event in Europe, was run at Longchamp today. The value of the added stake, as a result of Government (Societe d'Encouragement) support, was lifted this year from 600,000 francs (about £8000) to 1,000,000 francs (about £13,300). The result was:—
GRAND PRIX DE PARIS, a sweepstakes with 1,000,000 francs added; second 150,000 francs, third 100,000 francs, and fourth 50,000 francs; about 1 mile and 7 furlongs.

It was recently calculated that, with sweepstakes, this year's Grand Prix de Paris would carry a total stake of approximately £ 18,610. None of the three placed horses yesterday started recently in either the Poule d'Essai des Poulains (French Two Thousand Guineas) or the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches (French One Thousand). , The winner, Mieuxce, had twice previously been successful this season, brilliantly in the Prix Delatre, at MaisonsLaffitte early in April, and then in. the Prix Hocquart, 1£ miles, at Longchamp on May 10. In between these victories he was beaten into second place by Mr. J. E. Widener's Fastnet at Longchamp at the end of April, but he began slowly and was last into the straight. He is described as a goodlooking but rather leggy colt. His sire, iMassine, a son of Consols, won the Ascot Gold Cup in 1924—"Rangatira."
