Jockeys normally get 10% of the winnings for a race. So, for example, if they win a normal race and the winning prize is $10,000, then they'd get $1,000 for that day. If the race is a $25,000 prize, they'd get $2,500, and so on. Now, for a big race like the Kentucky Derby where the prize for 1st place can be around $2 million, the jockey's portion would be $200,000.
