Akasha traces directly to the outstanding Phipps family producer Broadway, the dam of Champion Queen of the Stage and the top runner and sire Reviewer. Broadway also produced two other stakes winners, plus Akasha’s third dam, Con Game. Akasha’s second dam, the winning filly Miner’s Game, is a full-sister to multiple Grade 1 winner Seeking the Gold (also a leading sire), as well as a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Fast Play and Grade 3 winner Stacked Pack. You can check out Akasha’s pedigree here.
Akasha’s dam, Good Opportunity, was bred and raced by the Phipps Stable, for whom she earned over $100,000. Good Opportunity is a half-sister to Grade 3 winner Survivalist (also Grade 1-placed), stakes winner Power Game, Grade 2-placed winner Polish Miner, and stakes-placed winner Looking Afar (the dam of Grade 2 winner Nefertini as well as 2018 stakes winner In the Navy Now). Good Opportunity’s other siblings include Trading, a winner on the track who produced Grade 3 winner Awesome Chic (herself the dam of 2017 Grade 3 winner Awesome Slate).
Akasha is sired by Eclipse Champion Pleasant Tap, who won the Jockey Club Gold Cup-G1 and is the sire of Grade/Group 1 winners like David Junior, Premium Tap, Sahara Sky, Tap Dance City, Tap to Music and Tiago. Pleasant Tap is the broodmare sire of three champions, and stakes winners like American Freedom, Shaniko, Redeemed, Pleasant Prince, Bear’s Kid, Gottcha Gold, Bad Debt, Mail, Silky Smooth, etc.
Akasha is a half-sister to a pair of winners from two siblings to race, namely Fieldview and $200,000-earner Risky Weather. She is also a half to the unraced dam of Group 3 winner (and Group 1-placed) Take It All.
Akasha won 3 races from 6-1/2 furlongs to a mile on dirt and all-weather, including in allowance company.
