The Prix Imprudence is a Listed flat horse race in France open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run over a distance of 1,400 metres (approximately 7 furlongs) at Maisons-Laffitte Racecourse and takes place annually in April.

A trial race for the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches or its English counterpart, the 1,000 Guineas, it is named after Imprudence, a French-trained winner of both of those races plus the Epsom Oaks in 1947. The equivalent trial for colts and geldings is the Prix Djebel, which is run at the same meeting.

Two successive winners of the Prix Imprudence in the 1980s, Miesque and Ravinella, both subsequently won the French and English 1,000 Guineas. Other horses from this race to win the French version include Solitude and the 2000 third Bluemamba. Others to win the English Guineas are Bella Paola, Ma Biche, Natagora and the 1992 runner-up Hatoof. The winner of the Prix Imprudence in 2003, Six Perfections, went on to finish second in the English 1,000 Guineas, and later won the Prix Jacques Le Marois and the Breeders' Cup Mile.
