“Akachi leads throughout on debut for Enzo Crudeli”
Akachi is a name that rolls off the tongue and refers to a video game character who was a in a total of 21 different online games. He was a priest of the former god of the dead and was immune to poison, disease and also a plague called the ‘Black Whisper’ that killed off many of his rivals. Tonight his greyhound namesake trained out of Nambeelup blasted out of box five over 380m at Cannnington and led throughout. She clocked 22.21 and improved two lengths on her qualifying time of 22.36. The Warnbro trained Dad’s Decision finished powerfully to be beaten a length in second and two lengths away third was the Southern River based Junk Yard Hutchy. Akachi displayed faultless box manners again and is sure to win plenty of races by shooting to an early lead and enjoying interference-free gallops. Her father Fernando Bale earned an astonishing $1,299,370 from just 44 career starts, winning 35 of them before being retired to stud.
