Jockey Tyler Baze injured after being thrown from a horse

Jockey Tyler Baze was hurt Saturday after his mount reared up and tossed him off  just before the horses loaded into the gate for the fifth race at Del Mar.

Initial reports were that Baze had a badly swollen eye and a bruised calf, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

As the horses were waiting to be loaded, Night Justice reared up and dumped Baze. During the incident, Baze was head butted and the horse stepped on the jockey’s  calf before running off.
