Trained by Anne Smith for Windy Hill Farm, Nates Mineshaft won four consecutive races at the Fair Grounds in the winter of 2012. He started his winning streak in a $25,000 claimer and after leaving the selling ranks won the Mineshaft Handicap and New Orleans Handicap. Nates Mineshaft seems to have an affinity for the Fair Grounds oval as he has scored five of his six victories over the strip.
