Chasing Tails Stables’ Starship Truffles rushed up to get the lead at the quarter pole in the $350, 000 Princess Rooney Handicap (G1) at Calder then ran off to a 3-3/4 length victory. Back after a win a week ago in Miami, the 4-year-old Florida-bred filly by Ghostzapper has won five of eight starts this year, and her first graded stakes victory gives her a 24-14-2-2 record and earnings of $433,035.  She was sold for $22,000 by Nickajack/Rey de Oros at the 2011 OBS June Sale after going through the ring at the April Sale. watch her under tack video
