Bob's Dylan, bumped by heavy favorite Lisa's Booby Trap, recovers to win Friday's allowance sprint feature at Finger Lakes.

Lisa’s Booby Trap returned to Finger Lakes for what was supposed to be a confidence builder following a failed one-race experiment on turf. But the locally based 3-year-old Lisa’s Booby Trap, who began her career by winning four consecutive races, struggled to finish third in a field of five fillies and mares in a no-conditions allowance race on Friday’s card.

In a troubled-filled trip, Lisa’s Booby Trap ducked out at the start of the 5 ½-furlong sprint, bumping Mrs. Rabbits, then drifted out at the seven-sixteenths pole and brushed with eventual winner Bob’s Dylan. Sent off as the 2-5 favorite, Lisa’s Booby Trap, ridden for the first time by Oscar Gomez, hung in the stretch and finished behind Bob’s Dylan ($16) and Mrs. Rabbits, beaten two lengths.

Lisa’s Booby Trap, owned and trained by Tim Snyder, won her first three career races at Finger Lakes by a combined margin of nearly 38 lengths before shipping to Saratoga and romping again in the Loudonville Stakes on Aug. 6.

She was sent off as the even-money favorite in the one-mile Riskaverse on turf, but faded to finish last of 10, beaten 17 lengths, on Sept. 2.
