A gorgeous son of the great Somebeachsomewhere, he was a $260,000 yearling purchase at the 2019 Harrisburg Sale. His dam is world champion, multiple stakes winner and 100 per cent producer Western Graduate p,4,1:51.1 ($1,305,072), and he is a full brother to multiple stakes winner Im Some Graduate p,1:50.2f ($611,590).
