Just as he did last time out, Rapid Redux held off a stretch bid from Awesome Rhythm at Laurel Park to continue his record-setting win streak, which has now reached 22 in a row.
The story of Rapid Redux -- winner of 19 straight from December 2010 through October 2011 -- points out the importance of consistent placement at a level at which he can compete.
With his front-running 6 1/2-length victory at the Maryland State Fair in Timonium, Rapid Redux joined a couple of all-time greats with his 16th consecutive victory Sept. 4.
