Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the role of individuals licensed to operate as a jockey and compete in industry-regulated events in the thoroughbred racing code.

Jockeys are independent professional athletes who ride racehorses at race meetings, barrier trials and trackwork. Most are independent contractors offering their riding services to compete in racing industry regulated race meetings, with some retained by racing stables. A jockey possesses the highest level of race riding skills, requiring a high degree of decision-making skill and reaction time during races, and the ability to exercise judgement when choosing mounts and assessing horse form.

The qualification reflects the requirement for jockeys to identify and advise on factors that affect racehorse performance; give advice on horse ability, fitness and progress; observe rules of racing and industry policies and guidelines; communicate with racing industry officials and media, and take instruction and advice from trainers and owners. It covers the knowledge required to perform on a daily basis at specific bodyweight and peak fitness and business skills required for self-employment to enable jockeys to market their services, and manage personal finances and business operations.

This qualification is required for industry licensing and registration in some states and territories. Refer to the relevant state or territory Principal Racing Authority for current requirements.
