WHAT a weekend it was for Fast Company and the Burns family. The now Overbury Stud resident Fast Company sired Devonshire who won the Group 2 Lanwades Stud Stakes on Saturday, and less than 24 hours later he had his first European classic winner when Jet Setting landed the spoils in the Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas.

Fast Company stood his first five seasons at Maurice Burns’ Rathasker Stud where he sired a high percentage of winners to runners, popular sales horses and good runners. Prior to this year they included the Norfolk Stakes winner Baitha Alga and Devonshire, a listed winner who was third in last year’s Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas.
