Golden Gate: Baze finds himself in unfamiliar spot


Russell Baze, who led the nation’s jockeys with 374 victories in 2012, won the first race of 2013 at Golden Gate aboard Picture Perfect on Tuesday. He wound up with three wins after capturing the sixth race with Cheese Danish and the eighth with Isadaisybelle.

But Baze isn’t the leading rider of 2013 at Golden Gate Fields.

Dennis Carr won four races Tuesday – the third, fourth, fifth, and ninth.

As for Baze, he had the highest winning percentage among the nation’s riders last year, at 33 percent, and he hit the board in 69 percent of his starts.

Russell is by far and away the best rider at GGF and would ride him against anyone. Dennis is a good rider but he'll get lazy and start mailing in rides once he feels established in this colony.

Russell the Muscle will find his way to the top in no time and Dennis Carr will end up back in Canandaigua !
