Highly regarded 3-year-old colt
Normandy Invasion is quickly approaching his 2013 debut race. The Fox Hill
Farms colt will start in the Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds Race Course on
Feb. 23.

Trained by Chad Brown, Normandy Invasion had a five-furlong workout Sunday at
Palm Meadows Training Center. The 3-year-old went the distance in 1:01.23 the
fifth fastest of 24 working five-furlongs.

“Normandy will have two more works before shipping to New Orleans to train
over that track for several days prior to The Risen Star,” said owner Rick
Porter.

Ridden by Jose Lezcano, Normandy Invasion lost by a nose to 3-2 favorite
Overanalyze in the Remsen Stakes as the 7-2 third pick on Nov. 24 at Aqueduct.
The colt finished fifth in his debut at Belmont Park on Sept. 15 but came back
to win at Aqueduct on Nov. 2. In his three starts he has earned $92,240.
