Tyler Baze Denied License Reinstatement
Santa Anita Park stewards denied a bid by jockey Tyler Baze to have his jockey’s license reinstated, according to Daily Racing Form. Baze has been under suspension since June after failing a sobriety test. It was the second alcohol related suspension for the 31-year-old rider since 2011.
Stewards said Baze failed to follow the terms of the suspension given him last summer, including a requirement to undergo evalutation with the Winners Foundation, which assists and counsels licensees with substance abuse problems.
Earlier this month, Baze met with stewards in an effort to have his license reinstated. He was arrest in July after an automobile accident and charged with driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license. His blood-alcohol level was more than four times the legal limit, according to Daily Racing Form.
