AKKADIAN (c, 3, Tiznow--Papa Sids Girl {MSP, $135,086}, by Souvenir Copy) was away slowly but closed well late to be second in his 6 1/2-furlong debut down the hill turf course at Santa Anita Jan. 15. Stretching out in this second try, the even-money favorite settled into a stalking fourth behind fractions of :22.11, :46.78 and 1:11.70. The strapping dark bay rallied four wide into the stretch and powered clear under a motionless Garrett Gomez to best Unex Dali (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) by 2 1/2 lengths. Akkadian was a $215,000 KEESEP yearling and a $270,000 KEEAPR juvenile.

Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, $43,200.
