This year I've been following some pricey MTR two year olds, but none of them stepped up. Out of the blue, a moderately priced first timer named, Safe Trip Home, stepped up and won nicely at Turfway on 12/2. I know it was on an all-weather surface, but I like the way he did it, and there's some good dirt influences in his pedigree. He's out of a Bernstein mare, with names like Affirmed, Tiznow, Chief's Crown, and others, fairly close up in her pedigree. She was stakes placed up to 12f, so hopefully she passed on some stamina as well.

Bernstein 1x Has the same Conduit Mare as MTR 1x La Troienne BP Transcendant 
that gives Safe Trip Home a Piggyback Tail female  line from his Sire and BMS to go
with his TFF line 3o  with another line from Relaunch with a 1x/3o Dam S/BMS
4 stam Chef in 5 generations, he should be competitive.
Its getting Harder to project good runners with the Breeding getting Better
and a lot more making Projecting Pedigree guidelines, way to many this year.

Ok Thanks Gerh ,Tricky DI 5.67, Speed Sires countered with Stamina Conduit Mares for balance. 8h TFF

Conduit Mare Profile = 5-3-7-11-4   Speed = 8   Stamina = 15   Index = 0.77   Triads = 15-21-22 with a RF

Thanks for the info as always! I like the name of this colt. “Safe Trip Home” is the name of an album by Dido, which is the name of the dam. I like when the horse’s name has specific significance.

That is cool info, I already have good vibes and Safe Trip Home gives me goose bumps from your message.

I thought he ran really good to get up for fourth considering he broke poorly.Worth watching going forward

Glad to hear it. Maybe they started him prematurely.
