Continuing the family tradition, SAFE JOURNEY is the newest stakes producer descending from legendary foundation mare SAFELY HOME. The first foal out of Dark Hollow Farm's homebred mare is the multiple stakes-winning filly JOY, winner of Belmont Park's Perfect Sting S., Delaware Park's Christiana S. and Laurel Park's All Brandy S., with earnings of nearly $250,000. Her next foal to start is the handsome Combat Diver, a $100,000 2-year-old sales horse who broke his maiden at Belmont Park and finished second in Laurel's Miracle Wood S. in his first start at 3. Her 2016 2-year-old colt O DIONYSUS won first time out at Laurel. He was the top-priced colt sold at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall Yearlings sale in 2015, bringing $190,000.

SAFE JOURNEY is from the remarkable family of Hall of Famer SAFELY KEPT. A hard-knocking runner who made 13 starts at 3, winning three allowances that year, and retiring with $75,975 in earnings, SAFE JOURNEY is one of nine winners for her dam Safe At the Plate. A stakes-placed earner of $114,923 and half-sister to SAFELY KEPT, Safe At the Plate also produced graded stakes-placed runners Cognac Kisses ($178,094) and Kettle Won ($113,606) and $361,313-earner Glide Home.

In addition to champion sprinter SAFELY KEPT—Breeders' Cup Sprint-G1 champion, a winner of 24 of 31 starts (22 of them stakes) and $2,194,206 earner—SAFE JOURNEY's family boasts the likes of graded stakes winner, track record holder and sire PARTNER'S HERO and graded stakes winner and Gr.1-placed juvenile SANTIVA.
