Little Miss K, a two-year-old Artsplace pacing filly trained by Ervin Miller, has been scratched from the Breeders Crown due to an injury to her lower pastern.

Miller said, "We are hoping to get her fixed up so she could come back and race again, but it doesn't look very good."

The filly is currently undergoing surgery at the New Bolton clinic to attempt to repair a pastern that was "broken in several pieces" according to Miller.

"She was such a nice mare," continued Miller. "She was as sound in her elimination (prep race) as ever, as good as she was for the Three Diamonds. It's just a freak thing that happens in the horse business."

Miller also added, "The owners took it pretty well. It was a tough call, but they took it well."

Little Miss K, out of the mare Lady Mattingly, she by Matt's Scooter, finishes 2005 with six wins in 11 starts and earnings of $530,089. Owned by MJG Racing Stables Inc. and Hill View Enterprises, both of New Jersey, her 2005 victories include a 1:52.2 score in the She's A Great Lady Final at Mohawk.
