Baze Heads To Canada With Momentum After Winning Pair Of Races At GGF

Baze earned some traveling money by taking the first race with She’s a Sweetie ($4.60) and the sixth with Manitoga ($6.60). Baze tops the rider standings at Golden Gate Fields with 42 victories. Baze was recruited to Hastings Park by trainer Troy Taylor, who enlisted Baze to ride Cherokee Notion in the $150,000 British Columbia Derby, a 1 1/8-mile race for 3-year-olds. Cherokee Notion is a 9-to-5 favorite on the morning line to capture the Grade 3 feature. Baze, who was born in Vancouver in 1958, is also scheduled to ride in the three undercard stakes on the BC Derby program. Baze has the call on Trick of the North (7-to-2) in the $25,000 Sir Winston Churchill Handicap, Distorted Glamour (5-to-2) in the $25,000 Derby Bar and Grill Express, and Too Much Dirt (5-to-1) in the $50,000 Ascot Graduation Stakes. Golden Gate Fields, which offers simulcast wagering on racing from Hastings, will present nine live races Sunday. Post time is 12:45 p.m. and the track is offering $1 general parking, $1 general admission, $1 programs, $1 hot dogs, $1 beers, and $1 sodas. Fans will also enjoy live music from Love Fool between races and the broadcast of all the foot games via the NFL Sunday Ticket.
