One of the all-time greats SAFELY KEPT (bay filly, 1986, by Horatius – Safely Home, by Winning Hit) has been enshrined into the National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame. The Class of 2011 will be inducted on Friday, August 12 at 10:30 a.m. at the Fasig-Tipton sales pavilion. The ceremony is free and open to the public and for the second consecutive year will be televised live on HRTV.
The Dark Hollow bred SAFELY KEPT raced four years, won 24 of 31 starts and accumulated earnings of $2,194,206. Owned by Barry Weisbord and Richard Santulli’s Jayeff B. Stable who purchased her from Dark Hollow as a two-year-old for $300,000, SAFELY KEPT won four of her five starts as a 2-year-old in 1988 and then took eight of her nine races at age 3 to earn the Eclipse Award as Champion Sprinter. Among her wins during that campaign were the Grade 1 Test Stakes, the Grade 2 Genuine Risk Handicap and the Grade 2 Prioress Stakes.
At 4, SAFELY KEPT won eight of 10 races with seven of those victories in stakes events for trainer Alan Goldberg. She defeated a star-studded field in the 1990 Breeders’ Cup Sprint. That victory, over stars such as Black Tie Affair and Dayjur, also avenged her only loss from the prior year, as she defeated Dancing Spree by 9½ lengths.
Safely Kept concluded her career with five wins in seven starts as a 5-year-old in 1991, including her third victory in the Genuine Risk Handicap, Maryland Million Distaff and Garden State Stakes Handicap.
Sky Beauty (bay filly, 1990, by Blushing Groom – Maplejinsky, by Nijinsky II), bred in Kentucky by Sugar Maple Farm, won 15 of 21 starts and had purse earnings of $1,336,000 in her four-year career. Owned by Georgia Hoffman and trained by Allen Jerkens, Sky Beauty posted a five-race win streak at age 3 in 1993, which included the New York Filly Triple Crown and the Alabama.
Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, Open Mind and Sky Beauty will join SAFELY KEPT in the contemporary category as voted by the 183 members of the Hall of Fame’s voting panel. The Hall of Fame’s Historic Review Committee will announce its selections in early June to complete the Class of 2011.
