Fast Company is a 1953 comedy film directed by American filmmaker John Sturges.


Carol Maldon leaves New York to run her recently deceased father's stable. Rick Grayton is the trainer and jockey of her horse Gay Fleet. It is an exceptional horse, but no one yet knows Gay Fleet because it is still young. Rick has been intentionally losing races to make the horse seem inferior so that he can buy it from Carol cheaply. However, he is discovered by Mercedes, a rival stable owner, who tells Rick's plan to Carol.



According to MGM records the film earned $392,000 in the US and Canada and $131,000 elsewhere, resulting in a loss of $275,000.[1]
