ADAAY beat the subsequent Group 1-placed, mile Group 2 scorer Kodi Bear by three-parts of a length in a six-furlong Newbury maiden on their debut as two-year-olds, and he followed that with a Yarmouth score over the same trip a few weeks later. He was unplaced in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes, and third in a listed contest at Newbury in mid-July, but was not seen out again that year.
