Complexity took all the play for his debut on closing day at Saratoga and ran to the money with an impressive score to earn ‚??TDN Rising Star‚?? honors.

Showing a string of sharp local breezes, culminating in a 1:00 2/5 (3/18) five-furlong move Aug. 26, the $375,000 Keeneland September graduate was backed down to 85 cents on the dollar and broke about a length slowly from his inside draw. Quickly recovering and punching through at the rail under his own power, he dictated terms past splits of :22.14 and :45.02. Quietly ridden on the turn, he quickly shook clear once given his cue by Jose Ortiz as heads pointed toward home and never faced a serious threat from there, coasting home in hand 4 1/4 lengths to the good of longshot Harvey Wallbanger (Congrats) in a sharp clocking. The winner is the third ‚??Rising Star‚?? at the meet for leading owner Klaravich Stables and record-setting leading trainer Chad Brown, following up¬†Feedback(Violence) and¬†Newspaperofrecord (Ire)¬†(Lope de Vega {Ire}). He is a half to fellow ‚??Rising Star‚??¬†Valadorna¬†(Curlin), GSW & GISP, $560,920. His unraced dam, a half to juvenile GSW Springside (Awesome Again), is responsible for a yearling filly by Astrology and foaled a Curlin filly this season before visiting Pioneerof the Nile. Second dam Forty Dollar was a stakes winner and Grade II-placed.
