Acomb winner Fast Company has been acquired by Darley.

Group III-winning juvenile Fast Company has been sold by Earle I. Mack to Darley for an undisclosed price, it was confirmed Aug. 29.

A colt son of Danehill Dancer--Sheezalady, by Zafonic, Fast Company is undefeated in two starts, including a 3 1/2-length triumph Aug. 21 in the Tattersalls Millions Acomb Stakes (Eng-III) at York. He finished the seven-furlong turf event in 1:26.60.

Mack, who has racing strings in several countries including the United States, confirmed the sale through his Louisville, Ky., attorney Joel Turner. "Mr. Mack is very pleased to do business with people he holds in such high regard as fellow horsemen and sportsmen," said Turner, who declined to discuss terms of the sale.

Other horses previously sold by Mack to Darley/Godolphin interests include multiple group I winner Electrocutionist, grade III winner Grand Hombre, and stakes winner Thomas Jo.

Mack originally acquired Fast Company for $277,271 at the 2006 Tattersall's October yearling sale. The colt was bred in Ireland by Limetree Stud Ltd. and Aerial Bloodstock.

Trained by Brian J. Meehan, Fast Company won his first start July 14 at Salisbury, claiming a three-length verdict in the Bathwick Tyres/E.B.F. Maiden Stakes. He has earned $55,041. It is believed he will continue to race in Europe.
