Arqana has strengthened its overseas department with the addition of Ajay Anne, who becomes the company's new thoroughbred representative for the Middle East and India.

A graduate of the Darley Flying Start and the Indian Racing Academy, Anne started his career with Darley as their Middle East, Indian and South African bloodstock representative. 

Since the creation of his own agency New Approach Bloodstock in 2010, he has guided numerous clients in their purchases both privately and at auction for racing and breeding. Anne has also been a registered steward with UAE Racing since 2006.

Commenting on his appointment, Anne said, “I'm delighted to be joining the Arqana team of representatives. Having lived in Dubai for 18 years now, I've been able to observe first-hand the evolution of racing in the Middle East. 

“The thoroughbred market is booming and investment is high, particularly in the yearling segment. India, my home country with which I have close ties, has many passionate owners and breeders, whose demand is mainly geared towards breeding and finding good mares and stallions. I'm excited and looking forward to what promises to be a great new chapter.”

Freddy Powell, Managing Director at Arqana, added, “We are delighted to add Ajay Anne to the team of Arqana representatives around the world. Ajay's profile is quite unique, combining his excellent knowledge of the Middle East, where he is based, with his expertise in the Indian market, where Arqana has been present for many years. 

“We wanted to give ourselves the means to redevelop our network in India, and Ajay is the ideal candidate to achieve this alongside us. As for the Middle East, this is obviously a key region for an auction house like Arqana. The investor base is evolving fast and it was important to be able to count on a representative totally dedicated to the thoroughbred market alongside our existing representative, Faisal Al Rhamani, who focuses on Arabians.”
