Vicar's in Trouble wins Louisiana Derby

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Jockey Rosie Napravnik guided Vicar's in Trouble to a commanding victory Saturday in the $1 million Grade II Louisiana Derby, one of the premier prep races for the Kentucky Derby.

Vicar's in Trouble, who broke from the gate at the Fair Grounds Race Course as a 3-1 second favorite, took the lead in the first turn and remained in front from there, completing the 1 1/8-mile race in 1:50.3.

Intense Holiday, the 9-5 favorite and winner of the Grade II Risen Star Stakes at the Fair Grounds last month, remained near the front but was unable to mount a significance challenge down the stretch. Commanding Curve was third.

The Louisiana Derby marked the second major victory at the Fair Grounds for Vicar's In Trouble, who also won the Grade III Lecomte Stakes in January. He paid $8.60, $4.40 and $3. Intense Holiday paid $3.20 and $2.60, and Commanding Curve paid $5.20.
