Still time to act Fast!

Fast Company has made an exceptional start to the season, with terrific performances from all his three crops of racing age. And some of his best performers were conceived in late-April, May and June.

An impressive debut win of the most significant juvenile run in France so far this year is the latest success for new Overbury stallion Fast Company. The €25,000 Prix du Premier Pas, run at Chantilly this year on the same card as three Classic trials, was won by Red Onion, who defeated runners trained by Richard Hannon and Paul Cole. The colt was bred by Thierry de la Heronniere, who is supporting fellow Overbury stallion Mustajeeb this season. Red Onion was conceived in late-April.

Fast Company's first two crops have also run with credit this year. Among his three-year-olds he has G3-winning Irish 1,000 Guineas candidate Jet Setting – she will be bidding to surpass the achievement of Fast Company's daughter Devonshire, who was third in the Classic last year. He also has the highly-rated three-year-old Speed Company, who earned a Timeform rating of 102p winning a competitive handicap at the Craven meeting: the Racing Post's write-up of the race identified a future in Stakes company for the John Quinn trainee.

Perhaps the best of Fast Company's three-year-olds will turn out to be his recent maiden winner Taqdeer, whose intended start in a traditionally hot Newbury maiden was relocated to Chelmsford. He attracted a 101p Timeform rating for his effort, and Hamdan Al Maktoum's eye-catching chestnut, who is trained by John Gosden, may make his next start in the 2,000 Guineas. He is also entered in the Dante Stakes.

Devonshire, second in the G3 Park Appeal Stakes on heavy ground on her seasonal reappearance, is likely to step up to 10f for her next start, in the G3 Mooresbridge Stakes. She's the product of a late-April covering, while Mutarakez, Brian Meehan's classy miler who went off third-favourite for the Lincoln but was ill-suited by the heavy going, was conceived in June. Two of Fast Company's best two-year-olds, Group performers Al Qahwa and Fast Act, were the result of matings in late-April and May.

Fast Company, who is the highest rated two-year-old from the Danzig line at stud, stands at £4,000 Oct 1, SLF.
