Riskaverse Next for Lisa's Booby Trap


After Lisa’s Booby Trap zipped through a three-furlong breeze on the grass this morning, trainer Tim Snyder said he has settled on the $70,000 Riskaverse on the turf at Saratoga Race Course on September 2 for the undefeated filly’s next start.


With Hall of Fame rider Kent Desormeaux aboard, the strapping bay filly was caught by NYRA clockers in :35 around the dogs over Oklahoma’s turf training course.


“Kent said she did very well, better than she did on dirt,” said Snyder. “She’ll go in the Riskaverse – it’s easier for her, and it’s easier for everyone who wants to come in and see her to make plans.”


Snyder’s daughter, Sierra, and his sister, Cheryl Hall, are among the many friends and family who will be traveling to Saratoga to watch Lisa’s Booby Trap run in the one-mile turf race for 3-year-old fillies. Snyder had been considering the Grade 2 Lake Placid on the turf on August 22 or the Grade 3 Victory Ride on August 28, but wanted to see how the filly took to the turf before making a decision.


“She was very level, had good action,” he said. “Just off today, I’d run her on the grass. She’ll go back to the turf to train on Friday.”


Lisa’s Booby Trap, who will be the subject of an upcoming one-hour “Dateline NBC” special, was purchased by Snyder for $4,500 and named in part after his late wife, Lisa, and in part after a gentlemen’s club in Miami. Club-footed and blind in one eye, the filly won her first three races at Finger Lakes and then romped home by six lengths to win the Loudonville Stakes at Saratoga on August 6. She has won her four races by a combined margin of 42 ¾ lengths and earned $75,600.


“Five in a row would be nice,” said Snyder. “I think she can handle it.”
