Star horse, Neorealism, the conqueror of local champions Werther and Pakistan Star in a Group One Queen Elizabeth II Cup, is heading to stud in Queensland after being secured to stand at Oaklands Stud.
The outstanding galloper, a Group One winner in Hong Kong and Group Two star in his native Japan, will provide Australian breeders with a great outcross as they plan to breed the racetrack’s next star. A son of Sunday Silence’s influential sire son Neo Universe, Neorealism won eight of his 23 lifetime starts for trainer Noriyuki Hori and was ridden in his big Hong Kong success by one of the world’s great riders, Joao Moreira.
Neorealism is a three quarter brother to dual hemisphere Group One winning stallion Real Impact. Both Real Impact and Neorealism, as well as two other stakes performers, are from the top producing Meadowlake mare Tokio Reality.
“We are thrilled to be able to stand a horse as well bred and internationally performed as Neorealism,” Oaklands Stud’s Neville Stewart said. “He has the attributes to develop into a successful sire and he is a great addition to the sire ranks in Queensland. The horse is a wonderful individual, very strong, perfectly put together and has a great temperament. Neorealism will not only be supported by Oaklands, but a syndicate of Japanese breeders will also retain interests in the entire and he will get every chance at stud.”
