DEL MAR, Calif. – The 2-year-old colt Accountability won a maiden special weight race for California-breds at Del Mar on Friday, the first winner for the stallion Acclamation.

Accountability ($16.20) ran 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:05.48, disputing the pace before winning by a half-length. Friday’s race was the second start for Accountability, who races for Craig Martin and Paul Newhart and is trained by Rafael Becerra. The colt was purchased by Newhart for $25,000 at the 2015 Barretts select yearling sale.
