So Surreal is a royally bred son of the great SOMEBEACHSOMEWHERE, from the outstanding stakes filly MUST SEE - 2,1:52, $487,122, thus making him a half brother to WELL SAID - 3,1:47.3 $2,569,342. So Surreal debuted at the Meadowlands as a two year old and won his first baby race in 1:55.4 with a last quarter in 26 seconds flat! So Surreal won the international stallion stake at two in 1:49.4 and was the second fastest colt of 2013, unfortunately a broken coffin bone ended his brief but brilliant racing career. So Surreal has outstanding pedigree and confirmation evidenced by the fact that he was a $125,000 yearling.

So Surreal is the fastest two year old to ever stand stud in New York.
