Bob Baffert began his career as a jockey. But he could not give continuity to the job as he grew out of shape and failed to maintain the required jockey weight of between 100 and 108 pounds. He, therefore, thought of becoming a trainer for American Quarter Horses instead, a breed of horse that excels at sprinting short distances. But to reach the level he is today, he worked hard for 12 years, after which he was able to earn $1 million in race prizes as a rider.
In the early years of the business, Bob Baffert made more than $150,000 for the first time. By 1991, he won over 1.4 million, the number which became more than double by the mid-90s.
