Starship Truffles, winner of the Princess Rooney Handicap (gr. I) at Calder Casino & Race Course, will be offered at Fasig-Tipton's summer selected horses of racing age sale in Lexington 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 4-year-old daughter of Ghostzapper   hails from the family of Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) winner Barbaro. She earned a 96 Beyer and 6.5 Ragozin Sheet number in her July 6 Princess Rooney victory.
 
"She has been brilliant in 2013, winning five of eight starts by a combined 29 lengths," said Steve Smith of Chasing Tails Stables in a release. "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."
 
Past performances, race replays, Ragozin numbers, analysis by Mike Watchmaker, and pedigree information for Starship Truffles are available on the Fasig-Tipton website or by clicking here.
 
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.
