Bob Baffert Net Worth
Bob Baffert net worth: Bob Baffert is an American horse owner and horse trainer who has a net worth of $30 million dollars. Bob Baffert was born on January 13, 1953 in Nogales, Arizona. As of this writing, Baffert's horses have won five Kentucky Derbies, seven Preakness Stakes, three Belmont Stakes and two US Triple Crowns. Baffert began his career as a jockey, but as he grew to be a larger man he had difficulty maintaining the required jockey weight (100-108 lbs). He therefore switched to become a trainer for American Quarter Horses, a breed of horse that excels at sprinting short distances. It took Bob 12 years to earn $1 million in race prizes as a rider.
In 1991, he devoted himself to conditioning Thoroughbreds, a breed known for its speed, agility and spirit. He trained them for flat racing, a form of racing with a level track over a predetermined distance. He got his first big break in 1992 when he won his first Breeder's Cup race with a horse named Thirty Slews. The win came with a $1 million prize. Between 1997 and 1999 he won the Eclipse Award as outstanding trainer three years in a row and was voted the 1997 Big Sport Turfdom Award. Baffert was inducted into Lone Star Park's Hall of Fame in 2007 and in 2009 the National Museum of Racing's Hall of Fame in Sarasota Springs, New York named Baffert a finalist for induction into the Hall of Fame as a trainer. That same year Baffert was elected into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame alongside one of the best fillies he trained, Silverbulletday. Baffert has five children; four from his first marriage and one from his second marriage. He survived a heart attack in late March 2012 while in Dubai for a world-class race at Meydan.
To date, horses trained by Bob Baffert have earned hundreds of millions of dollars in prizes and stud fees.
