WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Prime Time T.V., Golden Hunt, and Cherokee Dancer, a trio of Western Canadian-based 3-year-olds with high hopes, will face American invader S C King and two other locally based horses in Saturday's $40,000 Golden Boy Stakes at six furlongs.

In his first start here on May 22, Prime Time T.V. defeated a first-level allowance field by 16 lengths, earning a Beyer Speed Figure of 101.

A son of Deputy Minister trained by Bert Blake, Prime Time T.V. has drawn the rail in his first attempt against stakes company. Travis Hightower will be in the irons.

Breaking to the immediate outside of Prime Time T.V. will be Golden Hunt.

Trained by Greg Tracy, Golden Hunt won the President's Handicap in his most recent start, at Stampede Park on May 7. Before that, Golden Hunt, a son of Gold Alert, set a track record at Stampede Park, running four furlongs in 43.80 seconds in an eight-length victory over first-level allowance company and optional claimers.

After two starts last year at Woodbine, Cherokee Dancer was sent west by owner Phil Kives with Manitoba Derby aspirations.

Trained by Wendy Kruger, Cherokee Dancer won his first start here on May 8 against maiden special weight company by 12 1/2 lengths.

Cherokee Dancer will break from post 5 under Anderson Ward.

S C King has won two stakes in Nebraska from four outings this year. A winner of 3 of 5 starts at Saturday's six-furlong distance, S C King will break from post 3 with Rohan Singh on board.

Catch a Diamond won a first-level allowance race here on May 7 in his only start of the year. Trained by Don McLean, he will start from post 4 with Vince Guerra in the irons.
