That's it. A jockey who normally rides at a New York track for instance, rides in a stakes race in California.
Who pays for his travel?
Answer: Jockey travel & business expenses (including hotel, and if needed, car & other expenses) are handled by their agent.
They are paid either by the owners or by arrangement with the trainer (who then bills the owner).
Sometimes if the owner has a private jet, the jockey will travel that way.
Data supplied by my good friend Laurie Ross of www.ironmaidensthoroughbreds.com/
In the UK jockeys receive from the horse's trainer a travel allowance of 22.5p per mile when using their own car.
If using public transport they receive 50% of the cost.
