    Rookie trainer Carl Llewellyn has an allegedly reputation as being rather tight with money.<br>So is the thought of jockey prize money the only reason hes still riding along with training?<br>Incidentally the last 3 rides he has had have all won so it seems he choosing the right horses to ride.<br>When he has his first major win with Run For Paddy his first words were ‘ thats ok as I get both lots of percentages as the rider and trainer’.<br>Tony Mc Coy and his wife Chanelle have been staying with Carl at Weathercock House whilst they await the builders to finish their new home but A.P. has been having to watch tv from his car as Carl said he cant afford Sky tv and A.P. and his wife have also been sitting in the car with the engine running to keep warm as Carl keeps the heating on low!<br>Incidentally Chanelle Mc Coy is not used to slumming it as she was raised by her millionaire family in a 12th century Irish castle.<br>However is it not time for Carl to concentrate his attention to training a 100% of the time?<br>Is the winning prize money hes earning as a jockey woth the risk of any injury he may sustain?<br>Is it good for the other jockeys he employs that he picks and chooses what ones to ride?<br>

    Carl isn’t the first by a long way to combining a big string with riding ~ many years ago David Nicholson did the same and there can be no better way of knowing your horses’ needs than by riding them in races. As long as he can do the job he should combine the two.

    Jokes about Carl’s miserly status are exactly that, and you can be assured that he’s not just watching the pennies.

    He only rides the bumpers, doesn’t he?

    Probably just wants to keep his hand in whilst not running too high a risk of injury.:cool:

    Talking about "only for the money", McCoy marries someone from a very rich family!!!!!;)

    These jump jockeys seem to be very shrewd, you would think that McCoy and missus could afford to stay in a hotel for a while.:)

    Charlie Swan was another to continue riding in bumpers and hurdles for a while after he took up training, and also Rae Guest, I think. I can’t see the harm.
