Rapid Redux to Receive Special Eclipse Award

Robert Cole Jr.’s Rapid Redux, winner of 19 consecutive Thoroughbred races in 2011, will be honored with the Special Eclipse Award during ceremonies Jan. 16 in Los Angeles.

The Special Eclipse Award honors extraordinary service, individual achievements in, or contributions to the sport of Thoroughbred racing.

Rapid Redux, a 6-year-old Kentucky-bred gelding by Pleasantly Perfect, was 19-for-19 in 2011 for trainer David Wells, who is based at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Pennsylvania. The mark equaled Citation’s United States record of 19 wins in a calendar year.

Including two victories that closed out 2010, Rapid Redux also broke the record for consecutive wins by a U.S -based runner previously held by Zenyatta and Peppers Pride, who each registered 19 straight victories.
