Report: Jockey Tyler Baze hospitalized with 'alcohol-related illness'

Jockey Tyler Baze, suspended last year after failing to submit to a California Horse Racing Board mandated Breathalyzer test, has been admitted into a Southern California hospital for what Daily Racing Form, citing an unnamed family friend, reports as an "alcohol-related illness." Baze, 29, has a history of suspensions due to problems related to alcohol. His former agent, Ivan Puhich, told Daily Racing Form the jockey is going to be taken to a rehabilitation facility for treatment following his release from the hospital.

None of us can imagine the effort riders go through on a daily basis to keep the weight off: barfing, purgatives, sweat boxes, and the person left after all this effort has to deal with all those pressures the best they can. I COULD NOT DO IT, and would not wish it on someone I despised let alone these people.
Jockey Tyler Baze was “doing good” at Arcadia Methodist Hospital Sunday morning according to his former agent and long-time friend Ivan Puhich. The 29-year-old Seattle native, who has not ridden since he was given a suspension by Del Mar’s stewards early last September for failing to submit to a random Breathalyzer test, was hospitalized Thursday morning following a spill at his Monrovia residence. “When he’s discharged from the hospital, he’ll go right into rehab,” Puhich said.
We wish you all the best, Tyler, in your recovery, and hope you bring your tack back to the track soon!!!
