Wiki

Tyler Baze (born October 19, 1982 in Seattle, Washington) is an American Champion jockey. Born into a racing family, both of his parents were jockeys as is his uncle, Gary Baze. His second cousin is U.S. Racing Hall of Fame jockey, Russell Baze.

Tyler Baze began riding in Southern California in 1999 and earned his first victory on October 31 of that year. In 2000, was his big break when he rode 246 winners and was voted the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Apprentice Jockey.

Baze went through a rough patch beginning in 2003, but has since recovered with a new agent and a new nutritional regime which has brought him back to the top of the game. He is once again riding winners, mostly at California's Santa Anita Park and Phoenix, Arizona's Turf Paradise.
