      SAFE CONDUCT (c, 4, Bodemeister--Duchess Dancer, by Congrats), off a hit-or-miss 2021 campaign that saw him take the Queen's Plate S. at Woodbine Aug. 22 and place in both the Gio Ponti S. Nov. 26 as well as the Tropical Park Derby Dec. 26, opened up his 4-year-old year with a disappointing effort in the GII Mac Diarmida S. Mar. 5. Off at only 6-1, Safe Conduct took his time from the gate but quickly assumed the lead into the backstretch. Forty Under (Uncle Mo) pressured from the outside and the top pair drew away from the rest of the field. He was asked for more around the far turn while racing along the rail and slowly pulled away from his rival, prevailing by a length.

      Out of a half-sister to 2008 Canadian Horse of the Year and Champion Sprinter Fatal Bullet (Red Bullet), Safe Conduct has a 2-year-old half-sister named Classic Dancer (Collected) and a yearling half-sister by Munnings.
