NAOYA YOSHIDA’S talented juvenile NORMANDY HERO (’21 c. Omaha Beach / Swan Of The Nile) went post-ward Saturday along with six other foes to contest Keeneland’s Bowman Mill Stakes, a six-furlong sprint over a fast main track.
Assigned the challenging post position 1, NORMANDY HERO broke well and was situated third along the rail. Jockey ALEX ACHARD tipped the colt out to the three-path at the head of the lane and persisted with the game contender to just miss the win by half a length. The second-place finish earned the stylish colt his first black-type in five career outings. Conditioned by RADOLPHE BRISSET, NORMANDY HERO has tallied two wins and a second for earnings of $132,488.
Best of luck to all in the future!
