NEW FREEDOM, Pa.--Normandy Invasion, a G1 placed stallion who set a track record for a mile of 1:33.13 at Gulfstream Park in 2014, will stand the 2020 season at Pin Oak Lane Farm.
By Tapit out of Boston Lady, by Boston Harbor, Normandy Invasion won by 7 3/4 lengths while setting the track record on Feb. 22.
The 9-year-old bay also finished second to Verrazano, only beaten by 3/4 length, in the 2013 G1 Wood Memorial, and he was fourth in the 2013 Kentucky Derby to Orb, beating such top horses as Palace Malice, who won the Belmont, Will Take Carge, who won the Travers, and Mylute. .
Running from 2012 to 2015, Normandy Invasion won twice and was second five times from 12 starts and earned $551,900.
He is by the sire of sires Tapit, whose sons include Frosted, Tonalist, Constitution and Tapiture.
"Normandy Invasion has the physical appearance and the same pattern as other successful G1 quality horses that I have selected such as Havre de Grace, Songbird and Midnight Lute," said Tom McGreevy, a very famous selector of horses. "This is attested to by his second in the Wood Memorial and fourth in the Kentucky Derby. He possessed both speed and stamina. His track record at a mile on dirt at Gulfstream in 1:33.13 will take an extremely talented horse to break."
Normandy Invasion will stand for $2,500 live foal at Pin Oak Lane Farm, owned and managed by William J. Solomon, VMD.
