Bred and raced by Edmond Blanc, he was by the good winner and sire, Flying Fox and his dam was the unraced Amie by Clamart, who also won the Grand Prix de Paris. Ajax was a brother to Adam, a sire who was exported to the United States in 1906 and then in 1908 to Austria.
Ajax was trained by Robert Denman and ridden by jockey, George Stern. In 1904 the three-year-old colt won the two most prestigious races in France, the Prix du Jockey Club and the Grand Prix de Paris before retiring undefeated after five starts.
At stud, Ajax was an influential stallion who sired Union (his first classic winner and the 3rd dam of Le Pacha) and Teddy. His daughters produced the undefeated Havresac II, Invershin, Massine and Le Correge. Ajax died on 15 February 1915.
