He and Well Armed (click link for his pedigree) blazed under the finish line in a wire-to-wire victory well ahead of their competitors in the 2009 edition of the world’s richest horse race.
So, what’s the jockey’s cut of the winning purse? Ten percent? So, on a $3.2 million purse, that’s a pretty good pay day.
FWIW, you see the figure $6 million associated with the Dubai World Cup race, but that’s the total, including Place and Show (second and third.)
BTW, the second seaon of “Jockeys” will feature hour-long episodes.
And, just a reminder, the first season half-hour (more like 20 minutes) episodes are on up the “Jockeys” website.
