Soft ground generally holds no fear for the progeny of Fast Company and on Sunday 11 June his daughter Penny Pepper handled the conditions well to land the G3 Ballyogan Stakes at the Curragh. Slowly away in the six furlong contest, she crept into contention before making her move down the outside, sweeping to front in the shadow of the post.
Owned and bred by John Tuthill, Penny Pepper is a daughter of the Irish Stakes-winner Evening Time and a half-sister to Morning Frost, winner of the Listed Prix Ronde de Nuit in France. Evening Time also has a yearling colt by Fast Company.
Fast Company, who is standing this season at a fee of €7,000, is also sire of the Classic-heroine Jet Setting, G1 miler Devonshire and the Royal Ascot G2-winning juvenile Baitha Alga.
