  "abstract": "<p>The prospect of precise, rotation-based stellar ages drives the development of magnetic braking models for Sun-like stars. The vast majority of these magnetic braking laws have been calibrated on and for main sequence stars. While rotation-age relations lack the same utility on the subgiant branch, subgiant rotational behavior remains an excellent test of the underlying stellar evolutionary models and the magnetic braking prescriptions themselves. I will extend two different main sequence braking models onto the subgiant branch: a &ldquo;standard&rdquo; model in which angular momentum loss occurs smoothly over the entire main sequence, and the more recent &ldquo;weakened&rdquo; magnetic braking model, in which spin down halts roughly midway through the main sequence. I will show that subgiant rotation rates are a discriminating test of whether weakened braking actually occurs on the main sequence, with period predictions that can differ by greater than 50% from the standard case.</p>",
