BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Rapid Redux, a five-year-old thoroughbred gelding, made history Thursday with a 19th consecutive win in Laurel Park. He ties with two other horses with this victory.

With his jockey J.D. Acosta, Rapid Redux led throughout the seven-furlong race and covered the distance in one minute and 24.07 seconds.

The horse is owned by Robert L. Cole, Jr. of Baltimore County, who bought Rapid Redux at Penn National for $6,250 in Oct. 2010. Since then, the thoroughbred has won 20 out of 21 races and earned $237,009.
