The $100,000 Super Derby Prelude Stakes, at 1 1/16 miles on the Louisiana Downs main track for 3-year-olds, is the major local prep for the $500,000 Super Derby (G2) to be run on September 7. A field of 7 went to post on Saturday, with Sunbean sent off as the 1-2 favorite over 2-1 Carve and 12-1 Runaway Stephen. Jockey Corey Lanerie sent Sunbean to the lead and he set fractions of 24.31, 48.36, and 1:12.54 while as many as 3 lengths in front of 23-1 Hardrock Eleven and 16-1 Holiday Mischief. Entering the stretch, Sunbean held onto a 1 1/2 length lead through 1 mile in 1:37.39, but Holiday Mischief gained on the tiring pacesetter to win by a head in 1:44.33 over the fast track. It was a long 6 3/4 lengths back to Runaway Stephen third.
