Populist Politics came from sixth after a quarter mile to win the six furlong sprint by 1 1/2-lengths in 1:11.37 over a fast track. He earned $22,200 in his career debut for owner Klaravich Stable Inc.

The family also includes the multiple graded stakes winning older horse Ball Four, who set a nine furlong track record at Turfway in the Kentucky Cup Classic (G2).
