Baze Escapes Serious Injury at Golden Gate
Jockey Russell Baze, racing’s all-time leader with 11,415 career victories, escaped serious injury in the sixth race at Golden Gate Fields Nov, 27. His mount, Reinvent, crashed through the breakaway inner rail on the turf course while leading in mid-stretch.
Reinvent stayed on his feet throughout the ordeal and appeared to come out of the accident relatively unscathed. Baze reportedly sustained a bruised right thumb.
