Racing Dudes Top 10 Trainers and Jockeys

What makes a trainer or jockey great?  Number of wins?  Number of on the board finishes?  Win/on the board percentages?  Total money earnings?  A little bit of everything is probably the right answer.  Today we’ve taken on the impossible task of trying to rank the top 10 trainers and jocks at this very moment.  While reading remember that these ranking are based on performances for this year, not prior years.  This also does not reflect who our favorite trainers are, or who we believe can actually train a horse the best.  This is totally a numbers game.
