UPDATE - 4:45pm - Pick 6 CARRYOVER again $5,092.
The five year-old gelding Rapid Redux won his 16th straight race yesterday. He won in wire to wire fashion, pulling away with a quarter mile to go, coasting home for an easy 7 length victory in a $5,000 starter allowance at Timonium. Sixteen wins puts Rapid Redux in elite company with Citation and Cigar. Ahead are Zenyatta and Pepper's Pride who both won 19 consecutive races.

In the fourth race a Monmouth today, two year-old Forward March makes his first in a 6 furlong MSW. Purchased for $2,050,000 in the Keeneland Septmeber yearling sale of 2010, the colt is trained by Shug McGaughey. He had one workout in Saratoga in May and then shifted to Belmont for the rest of his training and now starts at Monmouth. Curious, I don't expect, much from the horse.
