Winning: Helicopter and Rapid Redux

Arlington Park.

When Richard Ravin and Christine Wagner’s Helicopter got up in the late stages of his most recent race at Arlington Aug. 18, the 5-year-old gelding was scoring his 19th career win since New Year’s Day of 2009 through last weekend.

 

Two other horses – Robert Cole Jr.’s Rapid Redux and Establo Comerio’s Guadalquivir – also had 19 wins over that same time frame, but with total earnings of $289,414, Helicoptor led those rivals in money won to be the most successful horse in North America over that time frame based on that tiebreaker.

 

However, last Monday at Thistledown in Cleveland, Ohio, Rapid Redux reclaimed his advantage by scoring his 20th win in that same timeframe.  It was also Rapid Redux’s 15th straight win and his 13th in as many starts this season.

 

Helicopter, who is conditioned by Arlington Park’s leading trainer Larry Rivelli, still has more earnings than Rapid Redux, who is trained by David Wells and whose latest victory increased his own career earnings to $285,594.

 

Guadalquivir, who races exclusively at Hipodromo Camarero in Puerto Rico, is trained by Manuel Perez, has lifetime earnings of $114,258 and last went to the post July 17.
