Doubly historic, this winning saddle cloth belonged to 1985 Kentucky Derby winner Spend A Buck, and was also used by Hall of Fame jockey Angel Cordero, Jr. The green saddle cloth with white lettering features a "9" sewn on both sides with "Spend A Buck" screened on one side and just "Spend Buck" on the other. The "A" on the one side was left off for some reason. The lot comes from the family of owner Dennis Diaz and can be matched to photos of Spend A Buck running in the Derby. Shows some use. The fleet-footed Spend A Buck was voted the 1985 Eclipse Award for Horse of the Year and Champion Three-Year-Old Colt.
