Fast Company to join Darley: but he's still covering late mares...

Fast Company's extraordinary run of success has seen him recruited by Darley for its main roster. He will stand at Kildangan Stud in 2017 – but he is still at Overbury Stud and covering plenty of late-foaling mares.

After his landmark weekend – with G2 winner Devonshire, plus G1 Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Jet Setting – Darley is relocating Fast Company from Overbury to Kildangan Stud for the 2017 season. Sam Bullard, Darley's director of stallions, said, 'Fast Company is a stallion on the up. He could be a very valuable sire in the future, in the manner of an Iffraaj or a Kodiac.'

Fast Company sired 43% two-year-old winners to runners from his first two crops in 2014-15 – second only to Showcasing among all the stallions in Britain and Ireland – and he's already had four juvenile winners from his third crop, led by this week's Chantilly scorer Red Onion. His top-priced yearling from his first crop – £210,000 – went on to be named Baitha Alga and won the G2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot. His top-priced second crop yearling – £140,000 – is Taqdeer, now rated 112p by Timeform, and heading for Royal Ascot himself, with the Tercentenary Stakes his target.

So far, Fast Company has sired 10 horses rated 100 or higher by Timeform. At the identical stage in their careers, Iffraaj had nine and Kodiac seven.

Fast Company is still available to cover mares at Overbury Stud at £4,000 Oct 1, SLF.
