    Apparently Michael Baze has been found dead in his truck on the backside of Churchill Downs. Really sad, only 24.

    What a tragedy. So sad that he sat there practically the whole day while the track life spun around him. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

    Very sad and tragic. I believe his wife or SO is a COTH member.

    I saw that. Such a shame, he was so very young and had such a bright future ahead.

    Condolences to the family

    A talented and productive rider - such a loss under odd circumstances. You have to wonder how much impact losing big rides effects a rider mentally. Michael Baze rode Nehro to his first (and only) win Feb. 21 at Oaklawn. Yet he didn't get the call to ride Nehro in the Kentucky Derby where the horse finished 2nd. That has to eat away at a rider, even a young one.

    I think it would be prudent and kind to refrain from such speculation at this time, Glimmerglass.
