A mix of shippers and local three-year-olds will contest Saturday's Grade 2, $500,000 Super Derby at Louisiana Downs.  The field of nine entrants includes Grade 2 winners Alternation, trained by Donnie Von Hemel, and California-based Prayer for Relief, trained by Bob Baffert.

Alternation finished fourth in the Jim Dandy at Saratoga after scoring in the Peter Pan at Belmont Park in May.  Prayer for Relief seeks his fourth straight win and is coming off a victory in West Virginia Derby.
