Pimlico Special winner Include will be the starting highweight for Friday's 127th running of the $400,000-added, grade II Clark Handicap.
Racing secretary Jerry Botts has assigned the Buddy Delp-trained son of Broad Brush a 120 pound impost for the 1 1/8-mile Clark. Pat Day will ride Robert Meyerhoff's colt.
Meanwhile, two more Churchill Downs-based horses have joined the list of prospective starters for the Clark. Mary and Gary West's Ubiquity, trained by Bill Mott, and Jim and Pat Bohanon's Trion Georgia will contest the race.
Ubiquity breezed six furlongs Sunday in 1:15 over a "fast" track. Another expected Clark starter, Phillips Racing Partnerships' Storm Day, breezed five furlongs in 1:02 1/5.
Expected to tackle Include in the Clark are Fayette victor Connected (116), Super Derby winner Outofthebox (116), Meadowlands Cup winner Gander (115), Storm Day (111), Tribunal (111), Tahkodha Hills (110), Ubiquity (110), and Trion Georgia (106). Trainer Niall O'Callaghan said Ohio Derby runner-up Woodmoon (109) is a possible starter.
Tranquility Lake, who could also run in Thursday's Falls City, was assigned 114 pounds.
