PRINCESS ROONEY H. | PURSE: $350,000 | 3-YEAR-OLDS & UP | FILLIES & MARES | GRADE 1 | 6
Razor sharp Starship Truffles seized the lead rounding the turn and drew off impressively in the stretch to post an 8-1 upset in the $350,000 Princess Rooney Handicap July 6 at Calder Casino & Race Course.
She was one of five entrants for trainer Marty Wolfson, who earned his fourth Princess Rooney victory. Starship Truffles, winning her first graded stakes, easily defeated Judy the Beauty, the even-money favorite in the field of 12 fillies and mares. The final time for the six frulongs was 1:10 2/5 on a fast track.
Chasing Tail Stables owns 4-year-old Starship Truffles, who was ridden to victory by Edgard Zayas. The daughter of Ghostzapper earned her third win from her past four starts and 14th victory overall in 24 races.
My Pal Chrisy was third with Holiday Soiree fourth.
