Robert Bruce, the best colt in Chile, extended his winning sequence to six on Friday, 27 October, when stepping up to a mile-and-a-half in the G1 Premio El Ensayo. The Fast Company three-year-old, who was crowned their Champion juvenile last season, has been carrying all before him, winning his previous three G1 contests by a combined 21 lengths including an eight-length demolition of the Clasico Nacional Ricardo Lyon at the start of the month.
Held up in customary fashion, he waited until the straight to make his move, and despite being badly hampered, won with plenty to spare to win going away by over a length.
Robert Bruce was bred by Haras Convento Viejo and is out of G1 winner Lady Pelusa (Orpen). He is from the same family as another son of Fast Company Mister Fluff, who won a Stakes race just last weekend.
Fast Company is the sire of six individual Group winners, headed by G1 Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Jet Setting and G2 winners Devonshire, Baitha Alga and El Notario. This season his daughter Penny Pepper landed the G3 Ballyogan Stakes at the Curragh. He will be standing the 2018 season at a fee of €9,000 Oct 1, Special Live Foal.
