Karmageddon Tries Route in Spruce Fir

The least-experienced filly in the field might have the most to say about the outcome of Sunday’s $100,000 Spruce Fir Handicap at a mile and 70 yards.


Headless Horseman Racing’s Karmageddon is the only 3-year-old in the field of seven New Jersey-breds, which means she gets a big break in the weights, carrying 112 to the highweight’s 126. This will be her first try around two turns, but she drew the rail for the Spruce Fir, and she’ll have Chuck Lopez to guide her around, very likely on the front end.


“She’s very versatile,” trainer Doug Nunn said. “She’ll rate if she has to. But if they give us the lead, she’ll go. The way she trains, I know she’ll get the distance.”


Karmageddon, a daughter of Wildcat Heir * Kismet, by Kissin Kris (winner of the 1993 Haskell Invitational), has had just five lifetime races, winning three. She debuted here last Sept. 12, and ran second after a wide trip from Post 11.


The filly broke her maiden at the Meadowlands on Oct. 5.


“She won, but it was not very impressive,” said Nunn. “We performed throat surgery on her after that, and her race in the New Jersey Futurity (Nov. 13) was a fabulous effort.”
Karmageddon rallied furiously through the stretch to get up by a nose in the stakes event for fillies.


“We brought her back to the farm (Bright View Farm in Columbus, N.J., where she was foaled) to let her grow up,” the trainer said. “She started training at Overbrook Farm, and then came to the track on May 1.”


In her first start as a 3-year-old, Karmageddon stumbled at the start, got into the bridle and charged ahead, tiring to run third behind Moneigh Lisa. Nunn said she had tailed off just before that race.


“Last time out, she was her old self,” Nunn said about the filly’s effort on June 11, when she drew off by more than four lengths.
