Fast Company, new to the Darley roster this year, added a new Black type winner to his record on 24 March when his daughter Encaje Antiguo landed the Listed Premio Carlos Cousiño at Club Hipico in Chile.
Sent straight to the front, the two-year-old filly dictated throughout and was never seriously challenged and kept to her task superbly to win by two lengths. Susan O’Hara, also by Fast Company, ran on well to finish third.
Encaje Antiguo is owned and bred by Haras Convento Viejo and is out of the multiple winner Embroidery (More Than Ready), also dam of US G2 winner Ready For Rye. The mare is herself a half-sister to G1 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile winner Ready For Rye.
Later on the same card, Fast Company’s two-year-old son Quitralman added his first Black type when third in the Clasico Luis Subercaseaux.
Fast Company is now sire of 12 individual Stakes performers, headed by last year’s G1 Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Jet Setting, plus G2 Ridgewood Pearl Stakes winner and G1 Irish 1,000 Guineas third Devonshire.
Fast Company stands at Kildangan Stud at a fee of €7,000 October 1st SLF.
