CHRB to Set Hearing Date for Baze

Rider had to take off of five scheduled Betfair Hollywood Park mounts June 13.

Because of a violation of his conditional license agreement with the California Horse Racing Board, Betfair Hollywood Park rider Tyler Baze was removed from his five scheduled June 13 mounts at the track.

Baze, with a history of problems with alcohol abuse, is riding in California under a conditional license that requires him to check in with racing board investigators each day before riding.

Contacted June 14, steward Scott Chaney said Baze failed to meet one of those conditions the previous day. Chaney said a hearing would be conducted within the next two weeks.

Baze went into the June 13 card tied with three other riders for most wins, 31, at the current Hollywood meeting.
