Ajax (foaled 1901 in France) was an undefeated Champion Thoroughbred racehorse and a highly influential sire. Bred and raced by Edmond Blanc, Ajax was trained by Robert Denman. Ridden by George Stern, in 1904 the three-year-old colt won the two most prestigious races in France, the Prix du Jockey Club [1] and the Grand Prix de Paris [2] before retiring undefeated after five starts.

At stud, Ajax was a highly influential stallion [3] who notably sired Teddy.
