Friday, 12th July 2013

US Gr1-winning mare Starship Truffles will be offered for sale at Fasig-Tipton's Summer Selected Summer Horses of Racing Age sale at Lexington, Kentucky on July 15, reports bloodhorse.com. Catalogued as hip number 385, 4YO Starship Truffles (Ghostzapper-Bobbie Use, by Not for Love) is a winner of 14 races from 24 starts for US$433,035 earnings, including the Gr1 Princess Rooney Stakes (1200m) at Calder, and hails from the family of ill-fated Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro. "We're thrilled to have a grade I winner like Starship Truffles in the inaugural edition of this sale," commented Fasig-Tipton president Boyd Browning. "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."
