Baze Completes Super Weekend With Another Hat Trick

     Jockey Russell Baze had a super Super Bowl weekend at Golden Gate Fields.

     Baze won two races Friday, recorded a riding triple Saturday, and finished up with another hat trick Sunday.

     Baze scored with his first three mounts Sunday.  The Hall of Famer won the first race with Duke of Doom ($9.60), the third with Catrageous ($4.60), and the fourth with Wunderbar ($3.00).

     Mangalee Fractures Clavicle –  Jockey Nathan Mangalee fractured his right clavicle and sustained a minor concussion when he went down in a spill in the sixth race.  

     The accident occurred in midstretch when Mangalee’s mount, Thirsty for More, clipped heels with Blast the Cat and fell.  Blast the Cat, who drifted into the path of Thirsty for More, finished third in the race but was disqualified by the stewards and listed as unplaced.  

     Due to the concussion, Mangalee was taken to Highland Hospital in Oakland for a precautionary CT scan.  Apprentice rider Jose Delgadillo also went down when his horse, Black Mango, tripped over Thirsty for More.  Delgadillo escaped his fall unscathed.
