Fast Anna
Dk. b. or br. h., 2011, Medaglia d’Oro x Dreaming of Anna, by Rahy

Advertised Fee: $10,000

1) What is Fast Anna’s strongest selling point as a stallion?

Tom Hamm: Fast Anna produced over seven percent stakes winners from starters in his first juvenile crop. To top it off, he has the looks and pedigree to make it as a top stallion.

2) If I’ve got a mare that needs help from the stallion on a physical characteristic, what can Fast Anna best contribute to the equation?

Hamm: Fast Anna is a beautiful son of Medaglia d’Oro who stands at 16.2 hands. From him, and like his sire, you can expect a big frame with plenty of size and scope.

3) Fast Anna is out of a champion 2-year-old filly in Dreaming of Anna. What female-family influences do you see in Fast Anna and his foals?

Hamm: Lots of precocity and speed. Fast Anna can certainly get you a stakes winner at two.

4) Now that we’ve got a few crops on the ground, what can a breeder expect from a Fast Anna foal as a weanling? As a yearling?

Hamm: As foals and weanlings, Fast Anna progeny have a great frame with plenty of leg under them. With time, they only look to continue to mature and get better.

5) With his first runners being just 3-year-olds, a lot of Fast Anna’s resume at stud remains to be written. What makes you optimistic about the stallion from what you’ve seen so far?

Hamm: The consistency of stakes winners from his first crop of juveniles has us very optimistic. Multiple stakes winner Fast Scene is coming back for a spring campaign, and we’re excited about Lexi On the Move who won her first two starts at Oaklawn Park. He was also represented by a Royal Ascot runner in his first crop with Anna’s Fast.

6) What’s something about Fast Anna that you think goes overlooked?

Hamm: The depth and quality of his pedigree. His dam, Dreaming of Anna, won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies and was crowned champion 2-year-old filly. His second dam is a half-sister to leading sire Kitten’s Joy. A female family like that combined with sire power of Medaglia d’Oro provides him with all the potential in the world.

7) What else should someone considering Fast Anna know before making the call?

Hamm: He is capable of producing a six-figure yearling or stakes winner at two. Witnessing the talent displayed from his 2-year-old crop, we believe it is just the tip of the iceberg. He’s the full package at a modest price.
