A G2 winner as a juvenile last season, Fast Company’s three-year-old son El Notario made a perfect start to his Classic season when running out the easy winner of the G2 Clasico Domingo Segundo Herrera Martinez. Always travelling strongly in the 1500m contest, he made his move turning into the straight and soon had the race won, eventually winning by a length-and-three quarters with a further three-and-a-half lengths back to the third.
This was his third victory in six career starts and he will now likely head to Chilean 2,000 Guineas run on 9 September.
Bred by Haras Convento Viejo, he is out of the winning Editor’s Note-mare Imperial Note, who is herself a granddaughter of the G2-winning and Classic-placed mare Ilimitada.
Fast Company is the sire of six individual Group winners, headed by G1 Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Jet Setting, unbeaten Chilean dual G1-winner Robert Bruce and G2 winners Devonshire and Baitha Alga. This season his daughter Penny Pepper landed the G3 Ballyogan Stakes at the Curragh.
