Rapid Redux Not Certain to Start Jan. 4

Rapid Redux, who has won 21 consecutive races, has been established as the 3-5 morning line favorite for a $17,000 starter allowance Jan. 4 at Laurel Park. However, trainer David Wells revealed that his star “grabbed a quarter” in his right front foot a few days ago and his status is at least slightly in doubt.

“There is a little cut on his right front foot. We are a little bit concerned about tomorrow,” Wells said Jan. 3. “It is kind of up in the air. We are working as hard as we can to get it healed up for where it isn’t tender. It does bother him to push on it. It is a little spot, the size of a thumbnail. I had the blacksmith take off his glue-on shoes because we thought that was aggravating but it is all coming from where he grabbed himself.”
Rapid Redux, who broke the modern-day United States record for consecutive wins last November at Mountaineer Park with his 20th straight score, looks to extend his winning streak to 22 on opening day of the Maryland racing season at Laurel. The now 6-year-old was a perfect 19-of-19 in 2011.
