Separationofpowers was bet down to 9-5 favoritism and did not disappoint in this career debut, going to the front and never looking back in a romp to earn ‘TDN Rising Star’ status. Owned by Seth Klarman’s Klaravich Stables, who paired with William Lawrence and trainer Chad Brown to campaign GI Preakness S. hero Cloud Computing (Maclean’s Music), Separationofpowers prepared with a series of works at Saratoga dating back to late May and broke alertly from her rail draw here. Cutting out measured fractions of :23.05 and :46.53, the filly powered home down the stretch to a decisive score. Dancing (Bernardini) rallied to complete the exacta.
The winner’s second dam is MSW Lasting Code (Lost Code), who is also responsible for SW Fusa Code (Fusaichi Pegasus) and Little Luxury (Seeking the Gold), herself the dam of GIII Iowa Derby winner Bent on Bourbon (Arch). Shehadmefromhello has a yearling colt by Declaration of War and a weanling filly by Verrazano.
