From our Arieana Notebook: In Lebanon, *Arkane won every race of his 17 starts over a two-year period from 7 furlongs to 1 1/2 miles. He was 11 years old at the time of the 1947 Hearst Importation. *Arkane was a gift to Mr. William Randolph Hearst from Henri Pharoun, Foreign Minister of Lebanon. Mr. Hearst in turn gifted him to the President of Mexico, Manuel Avila Camacho. According to Bedouin tradition, only the finest horses were given away as gifts, for they had no price.

Sire of 6 registered purebred Arabian foals (2 colts and 4 fillies) before he was exported to Mexico, none of which appear in the pedigrees of Arieana Arabians.
