CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) _ Spend A Buck will carry high weight of 122 pounds when he seeks his first victory of the year in the $200,000-added Cherry Hill Mile at Garden State Park Saturday.
A field of 14 three-year-olds has been entered.
Spend A Buck finished third in the Bay Shore at Aqueduct March 23 in his only start of the year. The Cam Gambolati-trained son of Buckaroo is to be ridden by Angel Cordero.
Image of Greatness was assigned second high weight of 120 pounds and will be making his second start in six days. The George Steinbrenner-owned colt finished second in the Jim Beam Stakes at Latonia last Sunday.
Do It Again Dan, one of eight Kentucky Derby nominees in the field, will carry 118 pounds. The colt was third in the Florida Derby March 2.
Other leading contenders are I Am The Game, a triple stakes winner at Laurel this year, and King Babar, winner of the six-furlong Swift March 9 at Aqueduct.
The Cherry Hill Mile begins a rich series of races for 3-year-olds at Garden State. The $300,-000-added Garden State Stakes will be run later this month, while the $1 million Jersey Derby will be held May 27.
