Rapid Redux Does It Again!

Rapid Redux tied the modern-day United States record for wins in a single season Dec. 13, as he went wire-to-wire in a $5,000 starter allowance race at Laurel Park.

The 5-year-old son of Pleasantly Perfect   won his 19th race in 2011, tying the legendary Citation, who won 19 times during his Triple Crown season of 1948, and Roseben in 1905. Rapid Redux, who has now won his last 21 starts dating back to Dec. 2, 2010, broke the U.S. record for consecutive wins in his previous start Nov. 21 at Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort.

Rapid Redux completed 1 1/16 miles on Laurel’s fast track in 1:45.08 under J. D. Acosta, holding off a late charge by Awesome Rhythm to win by a half-length. The chestnut gelding is owned by Robert Cole Jr. and trained by David Wells. They claimed him for $6,250 in October 2010.

The North American single-season record is held by Puerto Rico-based Camarero, who won 29 straight races in 1955 and another 19 a year earlier during a 56-race win streak.
