Mandella Gets BC Dirt Mile Candidate Nates Mineshaft

Nate's Mineshaft wins the Mineshaft Handicap at Fair Grounds.
Nates Mineshaft, a three-time stakes winner who was third in the Grade 1 Stephen Foster Handicap at Churchill Downs in June, has joined trainer Richard Mandella’s California stable and is a candidate for the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile at Santa Anita on Nov. 3.

Nates Mineshaft, 5, has not started since the Stephen Foster and is not a definite for the BC Dirt Mile, Mandella said. Nates Mineshaft arrived in Southern California earlier this month and worked six furlongs at Santa Anita in 1:12.40 on Oct. 11.

“We just got him,” Mandella said. “He’s a thought for the BC Dirt Mile. I breezed him, and he breezed good. We’ve getting to know him a little bit.”
