LT3757 High Voltage flyback MOSFET choice

On page 30 of the LT3757 boost/flyback/sepic/inverting controller; there's an application for a 300V flyback design.

The switching MOSFET selected for this design is a VISHAY SILICONIX Si7850DP which has a max drain-source voltage of 60V.

When simulating the circuit with LTSpice I see voltages in excess of hundreds of volts at the drain.

Am I missing something here? It seems like this MOSFET selection is not adequate for the application.
