Rousing Sermon could make his next start in the Grade 2 Super Derby at Louisiana Downs.

Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer said he is eyeing the Grade 2, $500,000 Super Derby at Louisiana Downs on Sept. 8 as the next start for Rousing Sermon, who was second in the Real Good Deal Stakes on Aug. 3.

That was his second start since finishing eighth in the Kentucky Derby. He finished fourth in the Swaps Stakes after the Kentucky Derby.

“He came out of his last race very well,” Hollendorfer said Thursday morning. “He’s been very consistent. We’ll look at the Super Derby and also consider the Pennsylvania Derby,” which is two weeks later at Parx Racing.

Hollendorfer will be on the road quite a bit in upcoming weeks. He will run Nonios in the Travers and Via Villaggio in the Alabama at Saratoga this month.
