Jockey Tyler Baze, who has been suspended since July for failing a sobriety test, is currently enrolled in a 60-day residency rehabilitation program for alcohol, according to a report in the Daily Racing Form.

Stewards suspended Baze for 120 days after failing an alcohol test June 13. The suspension was retroactive to June 13 and ends Oct. 10. Baze's agent, Craig O'Bryan, told the DRF that the 30-year-old rider has been enrolled in the treatment program since Aug. 13.

As a condition of Baze being reinstated, track stewards ruled that he must complete 60 days of counseling and attend a fitness hearing before they would consider issuing him a license.

O'Bryan said that he had spoken with Baze earlier in the week, and “He sounded good.”

    All the best to Tyler. It’s a terrible illness, alcoholism. I hope he recovers and finds happiness.
