  • He was slow to move up his class.
    He ran his first grade race in 2016, his 5-year-old season.
  • In the Sapporo Kinen (2016), he was the 5th favorite.
    He took the lead right from the start of the race, and went on to finish 1st.
    He won his first grade race by 2 lengths over Maurice, last year’s Horse of the Year.
    (However, for Maurice, it was only a trial run in a 2,000-meter race.)
  • He went on to finish 3rd in the Mile Championship and ran in the Hong Kong Mile, where he finished 9th.
  • In the Nakayama Kinen, he won against four G1 horses – Logotype, Vivlos, Nuovo Record, and Real Steel.
  • In the Queen Elizabeth II Cup, he was the 2nd favorite.
    It is fair to say that his run in this race was ludicrous.
    In the beginning of the race, he seemed to be not concentrating on racing at all, perhaps because he was distracted by the car.
    Then, with about 1,000 meters to go, he took the lead at once, as if he were out of control.
    Normally, it would seem that he would have run out of energy and stalled out, but he managed to make it to the finish line in 1st place.
    I don’t know whether to call it a good or a bad ride by João Moreira.
    However, the fact remained that he won his first G1 race.
  • He retired at the end of 2018 and became a stallion in Australia in 2019.

His Close Relatives

  • Many successful horses have come from the family of Tokio Reality, his dam.
  • I’ll Love Again, a two-time third-place finisher in G1 races, is his brother.
  • Real Impact is his half-brother.
    He won G1 races in Japan and Australia.
    Neorealism may have become a stallion in Australia because of Real Impact.
    (Or it could be because Neorealism has done well in Hong Kong, as Hong Kong owners often buy Australian racehorses.)
  • Indy Champ, the 2019 JRA Award for Best Sprinter or Miler, is his nephew.
    Indy Champ’s sister, A Will a Way, was also active.

His Pedigree

  • His pedigree has one unique feature.
    It is that he has no Northern Dancer at all in his pedigree table.
    This is very unusual for a modern thoroughbred.
  • Rumors circulated that he would return to Japan in 2021.
    As of 2022, his name is not listed on the website of Oaklands Stud, his base in Australia.
    Now he moved to Grandview Stud and seems to be continuing his stallion career.
