Grade I winner Starship Truffles added to Fasig-Tipton sale

Fasig-Tipton release:


Starship Truffles, winner of last Saturday’s Grade I Princess Rooney Handicap at Calder Race Course, will be offered at Fasig-Tipton’s Summer Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale this Monday, July 15.  She is catalogued as hip number 385, and will be consigned by Hidden Brook, agent on behalf of owner Chasing Tails Stable.

A multiple stakes winner of $433,035, the four-year-old daughter of Ghostzapper is out of the Not For Love mare Bobbie Use and hails from the family of Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro.  Starship Truffles has won 14 of 24 career starts to date for trainer Martin Wolfson and owners Chasing Tails Stables.

“She has been brilliant in 2013, winning five of eight starts by a combined 29 lengths,” said Steve Smith of Chasing Tails Stables.  “The Princess Rooney is, so far, the highlight of her career and we are taking an opportunity to put her in the auction ring at an ideal time and place.  She’s at the top of her game and there are a lot of valuable stakes coming up for older fillies and mares through the rest of the year.”

Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning added: “We’re thrilled to have a Grade I winner like Starship Truffles in the inaugural edition of this sale.  It’s not too often that buyers have the opportunity to purchase a female sprint division leader, in her prime, with the big summer and fall races ahead of her.”

The Summer Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale will begin immediately following Fasig-Tipton’s July Selected Yearling Sale to be held at Fasig-Tipton’s Newtown Paddocks in Lexington, Kentucky.
