Curlin assigned 128 lbs. for Foster

Curlin has been assigned 128 pounds for next Saturday's Grade I Stephen Foster Handicap at Churchill Downs.

The 128-pound impost would be two pounds more than Curlin carried in his victory in the Dubai World Cup in his most recent start on March 29.

Trained by Steve Asmussen, Curlin is scheduled to make his first start at Churchill Downs since finishing third to Street Sense in last year's Kentucky Derby.

Considered possibilities to challenge Curlin are Einstein at 118 pounds, Grasshopper (117), Brass Hat (116), Delightful Kiss (114), Jonesboro (114), Barcola (113), High Blues (113), Red Rock Creek (113) and Sam P. (113).

Fujita takes feature

Fujita drew off in the stretch to defeat Stryker and Parioli's Trick, who dead-heated for second, by two lengths and win the $45,200 allowance feature for 3-year-olds and up Saturday at Churchill Downs.

Fujita covered the 6½ furlongs over a fast track in 1:15.58. It was his third victory in four career starts.
