Plum Pretty may go back east for the Cotillion at Parx Racing.

DEL MAR, Calif. - Prayer for Relief and Plum Pretty, back in California for trainer Bob Baffert after spending the summer on the East Coast, worked at Del Mar over the weekend for upcoming stakes.

Prayer for Relief, the West Virginia Derby winner, is up first. He is headed to Louisiana Downs for the Super Derby on Saturday following a half-mile drill in 47.20 seconds on Sunday. Rafael Bejarano rides.

Baffert said Plum Pretty, the Kentucky Oaks winner, could have a rematch in next month's $750,000 Cotillion Stakes at Parx with It's Tricky, who beat Plum Pretty in the Coaching Club American Oaks. Both were subsequently defeated by Royal Delta in the Alabama Stakes. Plum Pretty worked a half-mile in 47.40 seconds on Sunday
