Winning Jockeys Tend to be Consistent

The Daily Racing Form usually lists the jockey and his or her recent racing results right under the horse’s name and owner information. The information will tell readers about how the jockey has performed at the current track and how the jockey has done overall during the past 365 days of racing. The information will list the number of races run at the venue, the number of races run during the past year and the number of wins, places and shows the jockey took. A winning average is tallied for the current track and all other races run during the past year. The best jockeys will post winning percentages that are greater than 10 percent with many of the best showing win rates of 15 percent or higher. Jockeys who win about at least 10 percent of their races generally are good bets, and the best jockeys in the nation typically win about 20 percent or more of their races.
