Maudest Maven wins The 1889 Futurity
Dickey Bob, a six-year-old Minnesota bred quarter horse, won the $38,900 Cash Caravan Wednesday night at Canterbury Park. This was the third Cash Caravan win in four years for Dickey Bob, who is owned and was bred by Judy and Bruce Lunderborg of Gibbon, Minn. He also won the 400 yard race in 2018 and 2020 and finished second in 2019 to his full brother Pyc Jess Bite Mydust.
Dickey Bob, who defeated Myownersbroke by one length in 19.894 seconds, was ridden by leading jockey Edwin Escobedo. He paid $2.40 as the prohibitive favorite. The gelding’s earnings total of $299,426 is the most ever by a Minnesota bred quarter horse. Second in purse earnings is that 7-year-old full brother who ran out $274,662 in his 32-race career which ended last year.
“It’s unbelievable,” Bruce Lunderborg said. “I’ve got to thank the trainer, all the people involved, the track here, they’ve been really good. Two horses that great, hard to come by. We got lucky.”
Dickey Bob is trained by Jason Olmstead who one race earlier won The 1889 Futurity with Maudest Maven. The 2-year-old filly, who earned $9,828 of the $23,400 purse, beat Runaway Separately by a neck. She broke alertly and veered toward the outside rail under Escobedo but managed to edge to the lead at the wire. Maudest Maven is owned by Butch and Stephanie Webb. She paid $8.80 to win and covered 350 yards in 18.209 seconds.
