Abdullah bin Mohammed Al Attiyah BATTASH DE FAUST had broken his maiden three weeks ago at La Teste, France. The three-year-old chestnut colt followed it up with a second victory in the Prix Saint-Laurent at Dax, France on Sunday 8 September 2019.  Back over 1,400 metres, he seems to have found his preferred distance, having now won two from two over this trip. Trained by Madame Elizabeth Bernard, he won the race for three-year-old Arabians by a neck with Guillaume Guedj Gay in the saddle. The Al Shaqab Racing-owned and Thomas Fourcy-trained MKAYNS was the runner-up and was ridden by Laurie Foulard. ALGHAF who is also owned by Al Shaqab Racing and trained by Thomas Fourcy was further two lengths behind in third under Michael Forest.

BATTASH DE FAUST is a half-brother to the Group 1 winner EASTER DE FAUST. He is by AF ALBAHAR, who is also the sire of ALSAKER.
