Big Stick Lindy, Shaq Is Back and Margarita Man won their respective $56,590 divisions of the New York Sire Stakes for two-year-old trotting colts and geldings on Wednesday, September 2 at Batavia Downs. All of the winners are trained and were driven by former Batavia regular Ray Schnittker.

The fastest of the three divisions was won by Credit Winner colt Shaq Is Back, which cruised to a wire-to-wire, nine-length score in 2:01.1. Out of the Victory Dream mare Vivica Hall, Shaq Is Back notched its third win of the season.

Margarita Man raised its record to five wins in six lifetime starts when it trotted to a comfortable three and a quarter-length, gate-to-wire score in 2:02.3. Margarita Man is a Malabar Man--Margarita Miss gelding.

Big Stick Lindy started off the trifecta of NYSS races by taking advantage of the rail and an early miscue by favorite RC Serpent to go coast-to-coast to win by a diminishing neck in 2:02.4. The Conway Hall-Peace A Pie colt is owned by the contingent of Schnittker, KR Breeding, Steven Arnold and Jerry Silva.

The three NYSS wins gives the Schnittker barn an excellent chance of having three horses in the September 26 Night of Champions finals at Vernon Downs.
