Fast Company on a roll

Speed Company, Taqdeer and Brilliant Vanguard add their names to the winners’ board

Jet Setting started the Flat turf season in style for Fast Company when winning the Irish 1,000 Guineas Trial at Leopardstown on April 10, and her sire has continued to hit the board with some decent winners since then.

Speed Company looks to be a three-year-old with a bright future if his last-to-first victory at the Rowley Mile during the Craven Meeting is anything to go by.

“It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him entered in Listed or Group races in time,” was the Racing Post’s analysis of his ten-furlong victory off a mark of 89 for John Quinn and owner Wilson Woo.

Bred by Rathasker Stud, Speed Company is the second foal of the Singspiel mare Trentini, herself a winner over the same distance from the family of Group 2 winner No Excuse Needed. He has now won three of his four starts after scoring twice as a juvenile.

The John Gosden-trained Taqdeer certainly didn't mind the Greenham meeting's switch from Newbury to Chelmsford as he made all to post an impressive victory in the mile maiden for his owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum. The first foal of Pivotal's daughter Brigantia, he is another to have started his life at Rathasker Stud, having been bred by Maurice Burns.

Taqdeer currently holds entries for the QIPCO 2,000 Guineas and the G2 dante Stakes at York.

On Monday, three-year-old Brilliant Vanguard forced a dead-heat over six furlongs at Pontefract when staying on strongly up the hill to grab the leader Zebedaios. This was only the second start for the May-born gelding who was bred by Frank Moynihan from the winning Owington mare Alyska.
