NEW ORLEANS - Intense Holiday has drawn the first post position and is listed as a 2-1 morning line favorite for Saturday's $1 million Grade III Louisiana Derby, one of the premier prep races for the Kentucky Derby.

Trained by Todd Pletcher, Intense Holiday already has a major victory at the New Orleans Fair Grounds Race course, taking the Grade II Risen Star Stakes last month.

There are two second favorites listed at 4-1: Lecomte Stakes winner Vicar's In Trouble, starting from the sixth post, and similarly named In Trouble in the ninth slot.

Risen Star runner-up Albano, trained by Larry Jones, drew the 10th post position and is listed at 9-2 odds.

Rise Up, trained by Tom Amoss, will start from the eighth post, opening at 10-1 odds.
