The His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Thani-owned AKSAR won Prix Arca, recording his second consecutive victory at La Teste on Wednesday 7 August 2019. After travelling wide on the outside of the running pack near the pace throughout the race, ASKAR battled with Buis de Pompadour along the home straight to pass the post in front by a short head. Francois Xavier Bertras was the man in the saddle who guided the Francois Rohaut-saddled gelding to victory in the Class 3, mile-long, race reserved for four-year-old pure Arabians.

By Munjiz, Askar opened his scorecard at the beginning of July at Pompadour on the sand track. He is a grand-son of the great Cherifa, dam of champions Djebbel and Dejlmila, and notably of the pedigree of Majd Al Arab.
