Starship Truffles

Although she is now a Grade 1 winner, Starship Truffles began her career as the horse no one seemed to want, changing hands five times - via auction, claiming races and private sale - for an average price of just $15,050. The daughter of 2004 Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Ghostzapper was originally purchased for just $11,000 as yearling and the following year, was purchased for $22,000 at the OBS June sale of 2-year-olds by Starship Stable. After being purchased for a modest price, Starship Truffles began her career racing in claiming company, winning her debut in November 2011 at Calder Race Course. Six months later, she was claimed for $16,000 by Frank Calabrese. That owner, in turn, lost the filly for $6,250 to New Life Stable, Inc., with Equus Racing Stable later buying in after her 10 1/4 length romp in a claiming victory. Trainer Marty Wolfson, acting on behalf of Chasing Tails Stables, privately purchased Starship Truffles for the bargain price of $20,000 in August 2012. That acquisition proved lucrative for the filly's latest owners, as she has captured two stakes races this season - most notably the Grade 1 Princess Rooney Handicap at Calder. Believing in the motto “strike while the iron is hot,” Chasing Tails Stables entered Starship Truffles in the inaugural Fasig-Tipton July horses of racing age sale shortly after the Princess Rooney and the horse no one seemed to want, became a sales topper July 15 when sold for $1 million to Castleton Lyons.
