Profiting from flat Jockey Jim Crowley

Profiting from flat Jockey Jim Crowley

Jim Crowley became a champion flat jockey for the first time last season. He’s always been a competent rider but never got the recognition he deserved early in his career for his consistency.

Since 2008 he has nearly managed to get over a century of winners every season, the only time he fell short of this landmark was in 2011 with 94 winners but that year he had a few suspensions and had less than 800 rides in total so still a decent achievement by most jockey standards.

His devotion to riding has now been recognised and the fact he is now the current champion has seen him rewarded with a lucrative contract with Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, the older brother of the ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed.

At the time of writing, he has now surpassed the £2500000 in total win prize money with still the autumn part of the season to come. In his champion season winning year, he won 189 races from 1017 rides representing a win strike rate of around 19%, his highest winning percentage ratio of winners to rides, all the more commendable given the number of rides in total.

Knowing which jockeys ride certain tracks well is useful information and Jim Crowley best win strike rate from ride to winners are Ffos Las, Newcastle and Hamilton, all three reaching the 20% return ratio.

He has also ridden his most winners at Kempton with 276 career wins followed not far behind by Lingfield (272), two of which have all weather tracks, so he seems to understand being in the right position where the slightly different tempo of how races on an artificial surface can affect performance.

Here are some worthwhile stats for betting purposes.
