Jockey Russell Baze has been smiling a lot as he nears the record for most career wins by a jockey.
Russell Baze, who continues to close in on Laffit Pincay Jr.'s all-time victory mark of 9,530 wins, won once with his six mounts Friday night at Bay Meadows.

The 48-year-old Baze has 9,515 victories.

Baze's win came aboard odds-on favorite Sabi Sand ($3) in the second race. He finished third aboard Soft Lite – his only non-favorite of the night – in the first race, second on Quatorze in the third, second with Burning Blur in the fourth, fifth astride Its My Option in the fifth and third on Six Numbers in the seventh.

He has six mounts scheduled on Saturday's Bay Meadows card.
