Trainer Marty Wolfson (Starship Truffles): “I had her in this race and the mile-and-a-sixteenth against colts (Iron Horse), but she drew the outside (14) in that one, so I decided that this was a better spot for her even though she’s been running in two-turn races. She had won going 5 ½ (furlongs) early in her career, so I thought she would handle this. We bought her privately (after Sept. 17 victory at Calder). We love Ghostzapper and now she’s got some black-type. She’s actually still eligible for ‘a other than’ (allowance) conditions.”

Jockey Luis Saez (Starship Truffles): "I felt like I had a lot of horse and I knew coming down the stretch that she likes to finish strong. I saw the five horse (Come Sunday) in front of me and saw Joe Bravo asking and he didn't have any more horse so I knew I had the race. She felt better today than her previous races."

Jockey Joe Bravo (Come Sunday): "I wish she had a better start but she sat in the pocket and was very relaxed. I really thought I had a winner turning for home and she tried very hard, but Martin Wolfson's horse ran out and got me."
