BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

Over at the Louisiana Downs in Bossier City the 2013 Super Derby was a success tons of fans came out to see an exciting race card with the headliner Departing. Departing was fresh off a victory last month at the West Virginia Derby.

At the start Ruler of Love got out of the gates and off to a great start early and would hold the lead all the way to the final turn, that's where things got a little sticky.

The favorite to win, Departing, would creep up on the inside and turn on the jets and take the win.  Second place would go to Ruler of Love and Cameo Appearance would take third.
