September 19, 2013
Trainer Ray Schnittker swept the $147,000 Old Oaken Bucket for three-year-old colt trotters on the Little Brown Jug undercard on Thursday at the Delaware County Fairgrounds.
In the first $73,500 division, Flex The Muscle and David Miller set a national seasons record with his 8 ½ victory over Great Emancipator (Brad Kramer) in 1:54 4/5.
The Muscles Yankee colt is owned by Schnittker, Jerry Silva and the Arden Homestead Stable.
The connections came back to the winner’s circle two races later when Schnittker steered Cassis to a narrow victory over the pocket sitting Sing Jesse Sing (Dave Palone) in 1:55 2/5.
Schnittker, Silva, Arden Homestead Stable and Kelk’s own the sophomore son of Cantab Hall.
