Iron Man Russell Baze Reaches 50,000 Mounts

This missive from Golden Gate Fields on the occasion of 54-year-old Hall of Fame jockey Russell Baze riding his 50,000th mount at the Bay Area track on Friday:

“Baze, who swept the first three races on Friday’s card, has amassed 11,839 victories from his 50,000 mounts. Both the win total and mount total are North American racing records.

“How impressive is it to ride in 50,000 races? Equibase, horse racing’s official record keepers, determined the distance of Baze’s races total more than 42,924 miles and the total elapsed time of those races equals nearly 48 days.

“Since the circumference of the earth is 24,901.55 miles, Equibase’s stats show that Baze has raced around the world 1.72 times.”
