Jockey found dead in car
American jockey Michael Baze was found dead in his car in the stabling area at Churchill Downs racecourse on Tuesday afternoon. The 24-year-old came from a racing dynasty -- he was the son of former jockey Mike Baze and a second-cousin of record winning rider, Russell.
Baze's agent exchanged text messages with him on Monday night, but could not contact him on Tuesday morning. He was found by police in a vehicle that afternoon. Foul play is not suspected. Baze's biggest triumph came aboard Mi Sueno in the 2009 Darley Debutante Stakes.
