Making quite a presentation in the auction ring in Timonium at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale on the afternoon of May 20, the Dark Hollow Farm-bred colt from the first crop of Line of David sold for $100,000 to Gary Contessa, bidding for Wounded Warrior Stables.

Consigned by Niall Brennan Stables, the flashy chestnut represents a third generation descending from Dark Hollow Farm's foundation mare Safely Home. He is the third foal for the winning Flatter mare SAFE JOURNEY. Her first, current 4-year-old JOY, is a stakes winner of $120,810.

The colt's second dam, stakes-placed $114,923-earner Safe At the Plate, is a half-sister to Hall of Famer, Eclipse Award-winning sprinter and Breeders’ Cup Sprint-G1-winning multimillionaire SAFELY KEPT. Safe At the Plate produced nine winners, including graded stakes-placed runners Cognac Kisses ($178,094) and Kettle Won ($113,606) and $361,313-earner Glide Home. The remarkable family also boasts the likes of graded winners PARTNER’S HERO and SANTIVA.

SAFE JOURNEY's current 2-year-old is her first foal sold by Dark Hollow Farm. The mare has a yearling colt by Archarcharch and delivered a colt by Bodemeister this April.
