Wells Seeks Retirement Home for Rapid Redux

As retirement looms for Rapid Redux, the trainer of the horse that tied Citation’s modern day record for most wins in a year is seeking a retirement home for the 5-year-old gelding.

David Wells, who trained Rapid Redux to win 19 races in 2011 and 22 of 23 since being claimed on behalf of Robert Cole Jr. for $6,250 in October 2010, said Rapid Redux will make one or two starts in 2012 before being retired.

Wells and Cole had hoped to race Rapid Redux one more time in 2011 in an effort to set the season win mark, but that did not come to fruition. Wells said he thought Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course or Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races would put together a race that fit the conditions under which Repid Redux runs, but that did not happen.

The only other options for a race before the end of the year would have been at Tampa Bay Downs or Gulfstream Park, but proper shipping arrangements could not be made at the last minute for that to happen, Wells said.

no affront to the horse, who has run his heart out, but the trainer sounds to me like he is going to duck out of working his horse up the competition ladder.
I'll take him in a heartbeat! (if only I had a place to put him....) well, aside from that, I hope he finds a good home. He deserves it.
