Back to back wins at Prairie Meadows for Midshipman's Minecraft Maniac with his success in the August 29th Cyclones Handicap. Over the mile-and-one-sixteenth dirt course at the Iowa track, Minecraft Maniac settled early on the rail before making his bid on the far turn and opening up down the stretch to win by over a length.
Bred in Iowa by owner Warren Bush, Minecraft Maniac is out of the Officer mare Our Sweet Mary B, a half-sister to G3 winner and G1 placed Wild Snitch. Minecraft Maniac's half-brother, Hot Shot Kid, is a multiple Black Type winner and also a home-bred for Warren Bush.
Midshipman continues to be a consistent sire of Black Type horses, with Minecraft Maniac bringing his total of Black Type winners since July 1st to six! This list includes multiple stakes winner Relentless Dancer, Firstmate, Shippy, Weekend Ride and Wink. Midshipman's 16.2% Black Type horses from starters over his lifetime makes him one the the top stallions standing in Kentucky for under $50k.
