Rapid Redux, who set a record for horse based in the continental
United States with his 20th consecutive victory last month at
Mountaineer Racetrack, will take aim at another record Tuesday at Laurel
The 5-year-old Rapid Redux, trained by David Wells and
owned by Robert Cole, will go for his 19th win of 2011 in Tuesday’s
sixth race at Laurel, a starter allowance for horses who have run for a
claiming price of $5,000 or less the past two seasons. The 1 1/16-mile
race drew six other runners, including Zosogood, a winner of three
straight races at Monmouth Park since mid-October.
As part of his
Triple Crown campaign in 1948, Citation won 19 races, matching the
single-season total by the Hall of Famer Roseben as a 4-year-old in
1905. Rapid Redux can tie that post 19th-century mark for a Thoroughbred
based in the continental United States.
