Pleuven Set to Make his U.S. Debut

Trainer Chad Brown will saddle two promising juveniles in Pleuven, a stakes winner in France making his U.S. debut, and impressive first-out winner Request in the $100,000 Dania Beach Stakes (gr. IIIT) Dec. 21 at Gulfstream Park.

Pleuven began his career for breeder Jean de Cheffontaines by placing in his first two efforts before winning his next two starts, including the listed Prix Roland de Chambure at Longchamp July 13. The son of Turtle Bowl was purchased privately thereafter, and will make his first start on these shores while carrying the colors of Robert LaPenta, Gary Finder and Bradley Thoroughbreds .

“He took a little time to acclimate when I got him into New York and we weren’t able to get him to the races up there,” Brown said. “He needed a little extra time. Since I shipped him down here, he’s really done well. We’re going to give him a shot in this race.”

Pleuven has been listed as the 5-2 morning line favorite on Saturday. Good luck to his co-owners!
