In the  U.S. there is a flat fee for 4th thru last.  It ranges from $40 to $100, depending on the purse.  They recieve 5% of 3rd place, 5% of 2nd place, and 10% of first. 

Don't know if it matter, just thought I would let you know.

For 2011, at least, we will be using a flat rate when your horse earns money in a race.

Veteran jocks (>= 100 lifetime wins) will collect 15% of the earnings.
Apprentice jocks will collect 10% of the earnings.

This may change for 2012, but we'll see how this year goes.  :)

Nifty. Good decision in the end.  ;)

Now that we can select our own jocks, has any consideration been given to where they base themselves?

At the moment it seems feasible that a jock could be racing in both USA and Australia on the same day! Either way the jocks are a great innovation  ;)

At the moment, jockeys do command superpowers.  ;)  They can race in race #1 in the US, and race #2 in Australia.

I might eventually create location-specific jockeys, but for now, let's settle into the new features we've got.

Is there a place to look at jockey stats?

We need to revamp the jockeys a bit. I've just went thru the lists and we have no apprentice jockeys on the flat side. The jocks on the jumping side are all showing as apprentices. 4 jocks have won 100 races and should be classified as Veterans. The lowest number of wins for the flat racing jockey is 111 this year to date. That would make any jock a vet after only one year of racing. I don't think this is what we were shooting for.
If we upped the number of wins to be a veteran jock to 300 we would regain 2 apprentices. If it were 350 we would regain 8 apprentices and 2 might make it to vet status by the end of the year. If it were 400 we would regain 12 apprentices and 4 might make it to vet status by the end of the year.
Personally, I think we should go to 350 wins to become a veteran at the end of the year and possibly add 3 to 5 more green jockeys.

Just food for thought!!!

The other thing we could do is take the 5' 1" jump jockeys and use them in the flats!!!!! Just saw that weight would not be an issue as they are all under 110llbs.
