Alan Porter analysis for Normandy Invasion

A son of Tapit, Normandy Invasion was a graded stakes performer at two, three and four, and was beaten less than four lengths in the Kentucky Derby.

Tapit has enjoyed remarkable success with mares carrying Storm Cat, who appears in 16 of his stakes winners, 11 graded, and three Grade 1. Daughters of Deputy Minister—who should be a positive influence here—have supplied the dams of Tapit Grade 1 winners Frosted and Tapizar. Nijinsky II appears in the pedigree of eight Tapit stakes winners, including in the broodmare sire line of Grade 1 winner Tapitsfly (dam of Marlin, a son of Sword Dance) and a graded winner out of a mare by Shadeed, the sire of Alydeed, with other sources including Royal Academy, Seattle Dancer, Sky Classic and Strawberry Road. From daughters of the Sadler’s Wells horse, El Prado, Tapit has sired Grade 1 winner Laragh and graded winner White Rose. Out of mares from the Danzig line, Tapit has a trio of stakes winners. Out of mares descending from Icecapade—a three-quarter relative to Northern Dancer—Tapit has a Grade 1 winner out of a mare by Wild Again and stakes winners out of mares by Wild Rush and Phone Trick.

The Mr. Prospector strain appears likely to be positive here, and Tapit has done well with some select branches, notably Gone West, including through Mr. Greeley and Grand Slam; Forty Niner, including through Distorted Humor, Carson City, Cryptoclearance and Unbridled’s Song.

Tapit has enjoyed success with some specific branches of Mr. Prospector, notably Gone West, including through Mr. Greeley and Grand Slam, Forty Niner, including through Distorted Humor, Carson City, Cryptoclearance and Unbridled’s Song.

Tapit’s third dam is a sister to the influential sire Relaunch, and he has six stakes winners out of mares with Relaunch. Tapit has a Grade 1-placed stakes winner out of a mare by Cherokee Run, a son of the Blushing Groom horse Runaway Groom, and he also has graded stakes winners out of mares by other Blushing Groom-line stallions Orientate, Rahy and Shy Tom. Out of Caro-line mares there are stakes winners from daughters of In Excess, Indian Charlie and Cozzene. He has classic winner Tonalist out of a mare by Pleasant Colony, classic winner Creator out of a mare by a son of Private Account, and a Grade 1 winner out of a mare by Concern, who is by Broad Brush, a horse who has done well under Tapit’s sire Pulpit and who is also sire of Include. Tapit Champion Untapable is out of a mare from the Kris S. branch of Roberto.

Quote
"Displayed the most explosive burst of speed on the turn seen last year, and showed the ability to sustain it. Beautiful moving colt...Despite the slow pace (in the Wood Memorial-G1), his :36 1/5 final 3f still was very impressive, as was his strong gallop-out, opening up 5 lengths" - Steve Haskin Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Normandy Invasion (click for more)
