              === Normandy Invasion settled in at Palm Meadows ===
 
 Hallandale  Beach, FL  (Sports  Network) -  Remsen  Stakes runner-up  Normandy
 Invasion  is  stabled at  Palm Meadows  Training Center in  Florida ahead of a
 2013 Triple Crown campaign.
 
 Owned  by  Fox Hill Farm  and trained  by Chad Brown,  the colt is jogging and
 walking, getting ready for his first start as a 3-year-old.
 
 "He  will  begin easy gallops  next week  as we begin  to get serious with his
 training  to  prepare him for  his next race," owner  Rick Porter noted on the
 farm's  website. "Chad and  I have not decided when or where that race will be
 at this point. We have a long range plan of running him in the Classics if all
 goes  well. He has  started to put on some needed weight and is acting like he
 feels  terrific. He is bucking and playing. Chad knows he going to let him get
 a  little more  out of  his training  to keep  him on  the ground.  Right now,
 Normandy Invasion is just where we want him."
 
 Normandy  Invasion,  ridden by  Jose Lezcano,  lost by a  nose to 3-2 favorite
 Overanalyze  as the 7-2  third pick in the 10-horse Remsen. The colt came from
 well  off the pace to collar Overanalyze down the stretch before  losing by  a
 head bob.
 
 The colt finished  fifth in his debut at Belmont Park and came back to  win at
 Aqueduct on Nov. 2. In his three starts he has earned $92,240.
