    Let's not get too crazy about the win It was just a three horse field - win wagering only - for the $16,100 optional claiming. Three vet scratches narrowed the field down.

    Crazy? And here I was thinking that win pretty much sews up HOY for her.

    Hey, if you're referring to the Finger Lakes HOY Award, you're likely right!

    Right! Still a good race for her, sounds like she ran well. And picking up a pay check beats a no check any day.

    Assuming she's still got something left in the tank this season, I'd love to see her give a couple Aqueduct stakes a shot after FL closes, or maybe even see her down in Florida..

    I have been following and wagering on her all along and am very pleased that she is still running. True, it was only three horses this time, but it's a little more money for oats this winter. : ) She gets my HOY vote anytime!

    I see Lisa tried her hand at the Presque Isle tapeta to start off her 2012 season.. seemed to take to it pretty well, with 2nd and 3rd finishes and 80 Beyers..

    Back at Finger Lakes this past weekend, and stretching out to a mile. For some reason, Dennis Carr (who has been her regular jock and also rode her at PID) was off her and on another horse in the race.. thought that was strange..

    Anyway, she went too fast early and ran out of gas late, but had enuff to hold 2nd..

    I wonder if she'll try SAR again this year..

    BUMP

    No races or workouts since the last start in June, hope she hasn't been on the sidelines for anything serious. Her connections have a Facebook page for her, but it's rarely updated.

    And the book about her and Tim Snyder releases today too:

    Well we hope she wins. She's got to be one tough mare to stay the course, and we're glad she got some time off.

    Got a notice from amazon about the book, but didn't know it was about LBT. Now we'll have to buy it.

    I saw Tim at the track last weekend and spent about 20 minutes talking to him about Lisa and life in general. He told me about the book and showed me his advance copy and explained that the book is about more than LBT. He's had a kind of storied life (he was literally born at the track!) and, along with the whirlwind of his success with Lisa, he's had a crazy year with some health issues that are resolving and a wowza! personal surprise that I don't feel is okay to share in a public forum eventhough he probably wouldn't care if I did. He also mentioned that there might be some Hollywood interest in his life story as told in the book.

    I think Lisa looked terrific in her first out in almost a year. When I talked to him on Saturday he was pretty confident in her fitness level and she certainly proved him right!

    Got the book from Amazon yesterday, read about 50 pages last nite. Yikes.. to say Tim had a rough and challenging time as a youth would be an understatement. Always so sad when someone who experiences up close and personal how destructive alcohol abuse can be, then turns to the bottle themself.

    Good to see her back!

    Thanks for posting that White Camry. This guy Layden is a terrific writer and now I'm super-stoked to read the book. I wish Tim and Lisa lots of luck on Saturday. What a story.

    Quick correction.. LBT races Sunday at PID, not Saturday. 5th race, 7:05 post

    Here's more on Joe Layden:

    http://www.timesunion.com/local/arti...on-4516360.php

    That article mentions Dateline will finally be running a LBT piece.. folks will remember they shot a lot of footage of LBT and Tim back when she first stormed on the scene, but the project was then shelved after the fairy tale fell apart on the SAR turf..

    EDITED to add PPs for LBT's race:
