Tim Snyder, the owner and trainer of stakes winner Lisa's Booby Trap, has donated the filly’s front horseshoes that she wore when she won the Loudonville Stakes at Saratoga last summer to the R.A.C.E. Fund to help raise funds for racehorse retirement and rescue.
R.A.C.E. Fund president, Marlene Murray stated, “We are very grateful to Tim Snyder for donating these items to our organization to help us raise funds for racehorse retirement and rescue. The items will be available to bid on when the R.A.C.E. Fund holds its online auction this coming spring.”
Lisa’s Booby Trap became a national story and developed quite a following after she made her first start at Finger Lakes on May 24, 2010, going gate-to-wire in a six-furlong maiden race that she won by 17 3/4 lengths. She then won two allowance races at Finger Lakes by a combined margin of 19 lengths and went on to win the Loudonville Stakes at Saratoga by six lengths under Kent Desormeaux.
Lisa’s Booby Trap is blind in her left eye and runs with a clubbed right front hoof. The filly’s shoes are unique because she wears a hind shoe on the right front clubbed foot.
