Racing! A look inside the finances of the sport

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we give you the answers to questions you didn’t even think to ask.

The answer man is back in the house, and by man, I also mean woman. And you are in for a treat as our latest contributor, Jennie Rees, gives you an excellent tutorial on the finances of the game.

Those of us in the journalism game have admired Jennie’s work for a long time, mostly at the Louisville Courier-Journal. She’s a four-time Eclipse Award winner and currently heads JR Communications, which, no surprise, specializes in the racing industry. You should follow her on Twitter @Tracksidejennie. You won’t regret it.

When she says it, you can take it to the bank, which is why she was perfect to answer this question.

Craig Campbell asks: “I have always been curious about how trainers, jockeys and agents are paid. After winning a race, is there a standard formula for payment, or is it negotiated? If the horse doesn’t win, is there a compensation system for place, show or more?”

So, Jennie, how does it work?

“Let’s start with the trainers.

“In general, trainers get paid a certain amount of ‘day money’ every day for every horse in their care. It’s hard to say what is typical because it is a deal between the trainer and the owner, but the range might be from $65 on the low end to $100, $125, and a couple trainers might even get $150. The day money typically covers feed, hay, bedding and labor involved with a horse. Owners pay additional for the blacksmith (horses are typically shod once a month), veterinarian, vanning, stakes fees (if any) and stall rent, if any. Some trainers charge additional for vitamins and certain nutritional supplements and even for the special ‘vet wrap’ bandages they race in; some might include all that in the day money. I have heard of situations where trainers charge a higher day rate but then pay the veterinarian themselves.

“Trainers don’t make much money off day money, if any. Trainers make money off their commission on purse earnings.

“Typically trainers get a percentage of what their horse earns in a race if it finishes in the top three (sometimes they will get paid through fourth, and maybe some get a percentage of any money made). Again, it’s a deal between the owner and the trainer. The standard used to be 10%, and that’s still the number for many trainers. But bigger outfits often assess 11%, 12% and even 13% to use the extra money to ‘stake’ their key employees, such as an assistant trainer, exercise rider and/or groom.

“By the way, as with the jockey, the 10% (or whatever) comes off the gross of what the horse earns, not the net after the jockey, Lasix charges, racehorse aftercare per-race fees, stakes fees (if any) come out of the purse earnings. Keep in mind that most trainers won’t make anything — and will have expenses involved — if the horse finishes below third or fourth.

“These are all things a trainer can negotiate with an owner. Trainers also typically get a 5%-10% commission if an owner sells a horse that the trainer had, especially if it was sold for a profit. But that is optional on the owner’s part, not mandatory, unless spelled out in a contract. Some trainers also get paid commissions for buying horses for owners.

‘In my experience, most trainers bill their owners once a month.

“Jockeys: Jockey fees are based on the amount of the purse and are generally set by the racing regulators. Jockeys get 10% of what a winning horse grosses (versus the net after certain deductions are taken out) and 5% for second and third. Generally speaking, beyond that is what is known as a ‘losing jocks’ mount fee. However, there are exceptions. For instance, in Kentucky, the jockey of the fourth-place finisher also gets 5% of what the mount grosses in races worth at least $100,000. Below that, fourth place has a tiered fee based on purse. Fifth and below is the same whether you are fifth or 12th. However, it also is tiered based on purse. In Kentucky, that ranges from $60 for races up to $9,999 and $110 for races worth at least $100,000. Jockeys are free to enter into separate deals paying more with an owner. For instance, some nationally prominent jockeys will require a guarantee of the equivalent of second-place money — even if the horse is up the track — to commit to riding in an out-of-town stakes. Plus, their airfare and hotel and perhaps transportation.

“Jockeys generally get a check for all the money they have coming from the track once a week, which leads to agents.

“Jockey agents line up the mounts for a jockey and in return generally get 25%-30% of what the jockey makes. Again, that is a private deal between the jockey and the agent. In return, the agents take the abuse if they make a trainer mad by riding someone else’s horse. Agents get paid by the jockey, generally on a weekly basis, to my knowledge.”

Wow, lots of information and great look inside the business. Thanks, Jennie.

Now, reader Bryan Geyer asks: “What did they do with Native Diver's grave site? It was located behind the grandstand on the Hollywood Park grounds.”

For this, you can only go to Jon White, who not only is a great historian but also shares his weekly Derby Top 10. Plus, he does the morning-line at Santa Anita. So, what say you, Jon?

“The remains of Native Diver, the first three-time winner of the Hollywood Gold Cup and the first California-bred millionaire, were carefully moved to Del Mar from their location at what had been Hollywood Park's walking ring behind the grandstand. Eclipse Award winner Landaluce and Breeders' Cup Turf winner Great Communicator were two other horses who had been buried at Hollywood Park, both in the infield. Landaluce's remains were said to have been moved to Spendthrift Farm in Kentucky, where the champion filly was born. The remains of Great Communicator reportedly were taken by his trainer, Thad Ackel.”

Thanks, Jon, looking forward to seeing your new Derby Top 10 after the three points races this weekend.

Santa Anita review

Dream Tree has run only four races, two of them graded stakes, but she’s looked like the best in all of them. On Sunday, she demolished a small field of six in winning the $200,000 Las Virgenes Stakes for 3-year-old fillies over 1 1/16 miles. She won by 3 ¾ lengths.

It’s a good stepping-stone race for success, as it was won by Unique Bella and Songbird the last two years. Dream Tree waited patiently a few lengths off the lead, then easily drew even with the leader entering the stretch and cruised to a win under a hand ride by Drayden Van Dyke.

“I thought she was fresh and she was getting a little excited on her way to the gate,” winning trainer Bob Baffert said. “I just love the way she sat off those front-runners. I know she has a lot of speed. I think she’s getting better mentally and she’s relaxing and she really brought it at the end.”

Dream Tree paid $2.60, $2.10 and $2.10.

“We’ve been working on her in the mornings and it’s worked out,” Van Dyke said. “I’ve been able to get her to relax and finish well so what else could you ask for?”
