Russell Baze, the world's winningest jockey, will ride in six of the eight Idaho Cup races this Saturday at Sandy Downs in Idaho Falls. In addition to the $127,500 Idaho Cup, Saturday's 12-race card also features the $45,320 Bosen Futurity and the $16,440 Bosen Derby.

Baze, 51, has won more races than any jockey, having passed the previous record-holder, Laffit Pincay, Jr., on December 1, 2006, with his 9,531st win and reaching 10,000 wins on February 1, 2008.

Baze is scheduled to ride Shivers Me in the $20K Idaho Cup Derby, Pickin With Dehlia in the $20K Idaho Cup Maturity, Daring Beaunita in the $20K Idaho Cup Distaff Derby, Northern Poptart in the $30K Idaho Cup Futurity (run in divisions), Pirates Journey in the $10K Idaho Cup Sprint, and Silver Wildcat in the $20K Idaho Cup Classic.
