Racing! An inside look at being an agent

Hello, my name is Eric Sondheimer, and I’m filling in for John Cherwa.

There are many influential people in the racing industry, from owners to trainers to jockeys to stewards, but don’t forget about the people behind the scenes: the agents. It’s an intriguing job, one that requires a balancing act and being patient and persistent.

Scotty McClellan, 63, started representing jockeys when he was a teenager at Arcadia High. His father, Chick, was a jockey, trainer and mutuel clerk. Scotty was the agent for Hall of Fame jockey Chris McCarron and he’s going on 10 years representing Joe Talamo. His commission is 25% of Talamo’s purse earnings, so the two have to combine their wits and pick the right horses and try to outwork everyone when the competition is stiff and getting stiffer.

The jockey colony in Southern California is one of the hardest to crack, and it will get even harder come Dec. 26 at Santa Anita when Joel Rosario returns from the East Coast to ride.

McClellan must be able to deal with trainers and owners and their personalities and be professional at all times.

“You’d like to ride the favorite in every race, but when you have eight, nine races a day and 25 or more riders, it’s hard to find live horses every day,” he said. “You’re out there working hard and not burning bridges trying to keep them laughing. You need to win stakes and higher allowances to be producing and doing well.”

Several months ago, McClellan and Talamo began a new relationship with trainer Bob Baffert. Talamo started working out Baffert horses in the morning and picking up mounts from the Hall of Famer. On Saturday, Talamo rode a pair of Baffert’s top 2-year-olds, Coliseum and Mucho Gusto, to victory. On Sunday, he rode the comebacking 3-year-old Nero to victory.

“Right now it’s good,” McClellan said. “Working the better horses maybe will help Joe in the aspect of knowing he’s on a good horse.”

Loyalty is big in the racing industry, and sometimes it leads to tough choices. Talamo is the usual rider for Spiced Perfection and S Y Sky for the Brian Koriner and Phil D’Amato stables. Both ran in the Betty Grable Stakes last weekend. Talamo ended up choosing S Y Sky, which finished third. Spiced Perfection won the race. McClellan works closely with both barns.

“You’ve got to have a good sense of humor,” Scotty said. “You have to be take the bad with the good and stay level headed and be humble and appreciate someone giving you a shot to ride a horse.”

Flavien Prat answers questions

John asked jockey Flavien Prat seven questions to provide some insight into his personality.

What’s your favorite TV show that you are currently watching?

I’m a big Netflix fan. A soon as I get a good show, I just can’t stop. The last one would be “The Sinner” and a TV show on the true story about the “Unabomber.” As soon as I get a good show on Netflix, I just can’t stop.

If you weren’t a jockey, what would you be?

I would have liked to have been a Formula One driver. I’m not saying I would have done it but I would have liked to try.

What’s your all-time favorite movie or book?

It would be “Good Will Hunting.” I like the fact that someone could be so different and smart. That guy was just born that way and he’s smarter than everyone else. It’s kind of interesting.

If you could have lunch or dinner with anyone living or dead, who would it be?

My parents, and fortunately they are still alive. I see them once a year.

What’s No. 1 on your bucket list?

I would say winning the Kentucky Derby. Once I get older, I would love to travel all around the world.

What’s your favorite food?

I like oysters with a good glass of white wine.

What’s your favorite type of music?

I listen to everything. I like the blues, like James Brown, music like that. I just listen to all kinds of music.

Peter Miller stays hot

Trainer Peter Miller won the Breeders’ Cup Sprint and Turf Sprint and he’s still hot in the sprint races. The Miller-trained Solid Wager, under jockey Drayden Van Dyke, ran away from the competition on Sunday to win the $100,000 Cary Grant Stakes for Cal-breds going seven furlongs at Del Mar. It was the third time in the last four runnings the 7-year-old Solid Wager has won the race. Edwards Going Left finished second and Brandothebartender finished third. Solid Wager returned $11.40, $4.20 and $3.20.
