  1. Much as I would like to get involved with today’s 2yo races at Newmarket I am completely kyboshed by family health issues and just not finding the time. Today is a day at Newmarket I always attend, this year I will not even get to watch on TV so not much point in opining here other than to say I will be following Sergei Prokoviev over the cliff.

  3. Hi Colin,

    Sorry for the slow reply. Absolutely flat out at the moment and am barely getting any time to get things done.

    Honest answer is that there is no right answer to what a caddie gets. Every player is different and will have their own way of doing things. 10% is on the high side as most players will tie it in with win bonuses. It is becoming increasingly common for the top guys to be paid a wage and then bonuses on top.

    The tough side with the percentage arrangement is that the caddie is completely at the mercy of events. Also as you will know, the caddie is an easy target when things go wrong and job security is not high on the list of advantages. Also if you are not on a wage and the player goes on a run of a few missed cuts then there is no or very little money coming in.

    Like the golfers, you hear some amazing stories but these are the guys at the very top. As you go lower down the list it is a tough old game.

    Cheers

    Ben

    1. Cheers Ben thanks for coming back,does not matter which sport it is only the ones at the top who make a very good living and they have shown commitment and discipline to get there.
      Speaking of discipline Joe my son popped in for about an hour for he his going to see one of his ex school friends have his first professional boxing match tonight,so will he make it or was all the training for nothing.
      The school Tapton produced Seb Coe and Joe was in the same form as Alex Fitzpatrick brother of Matt Fitzpatrick who was there as well.
