Have you ever wondered how much the best jockeys earn for taking part in horse races?
Not all of them are millionaires, but the very best jockeys are able to rack up an impressive fortune over their careers.
Fans of American races like the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes might not be too familiar with Kate. Yet, he is a legendary rider in his native Japan, where he started his career in 1987, winning 69 races in his rookie season followed by over 100 victories the next year.
Since then, Kate has won a huge variety of trophies, from the Japanese Triple Crown to the Japanese Cup Dirt and international competitions such as the Hong Kong Cup, the July Cup and the Dubai Duty Free Stakes.
His huge popularity means that he has earned a lot of money from endorsements to add to his prize money. Some estimates put his net worth at over $800 million. He is sometimes called the face of Japanese horse racing due to his huge impact on the sport there.
This sport is also hugely popular in France, where Lemaire hails from. However, he has earned a lot of his cash winning in races in Japan, as well as in other countries. His career began in 1999 and he eventually moved over to full-time racing in Japan in 2014, having won several classics in different countries.
Among his international successes have been the Melbourne Cup, Queen Elizabeth II Cup, Grand Prix de Paris, and the Dubai Sheema Classic. He has been the most successful jockey in Japan for the last few years, beating Yutaka Kate’s record number of wins in a season with an impressive 215.
Some estimates put Lemaire’s earnings from horse racing at around $280 million and he appears to still have a few years left at the top of the sport.
This Venezuelan jockey has been riding professionally since 1996. Castellano started in his home country before moving to the US to compete. It was 2004 before he started picking up big wins, mainly on Ghostzapper.
He has come home in first place in the likes of the Travers Stakes and the Preakness Stakes during a career that is filled with victories. From 2013 to 2016, Castellano had the highest winnings of any North American jockey and since then has consistently been in the top three.
His net worth is thought to be in the region of $400 million, showing how much a top-class jockey can earn by staying at the top of the sport for a long time. He tested positive for the coronavirus in 2020 but has returned without any problems.
This Puerto Rican-born jockey moved to the US to ride in 1990. He has only topped the winnings list a couple of times since then, but the fact that he has been a leading name in the sport for three decades has allowed Velazquez to build up an enviable level of wealth.
Among the landmarks in this long career were when he was inducted in the Horse Racing Hall of Fame in 2012 and when he came home on his 5,000th winning horse the following year. He also won six races in a single day in 2001. In 2014, he took first place in the list of all-time jockey earnings.
His wins include 15 Breeder’s Cups and three Kentucky Derbies, as well as the Dubai World Cup, the Kentucky Oaks and a lot more. If you look for the KY Derby best bets, expect to see Velazquez’s name there.
He is thought to have earned a shade more than Castellano in prize wins, with just over $400 million to date. There you have it, the wealthiest horse jockeys in the world right now.

How to Fight and Farm Al-Hezmin, the Hunter
And get Hunter’s Exalted Orbs
Al-Hezmin is one of the Conquerors of the Atlas. He was part of Zana’s band of Exiles who once explored the maddening labyrinth. His expertise helped greatly in their exploration, as he seemed to never get lost. In the cartographer’s words, his desire to be the best at everything hollowed him out somehow. That’s where the ‘curse’ of the Atlas got to him. Now, he is a Conqueror of the Atlas, still bent on proving he’s the best hunter. He drops PoE currency such as the Hunter’s Exalted Orb.
How to Encounter Him
Once you get to a corner of the Atlas, you’ll start to encounter influenced maps. That means a Conqueror has arrived and you can find their Citadel. After completing an influenced map, you’ll see regions of the Atlas matching the color of the Conqueror. For Al-Hezmin, the color is green. An indicator of how far you’ve chased them also appears on your map.
When you’ve completely chased a Conqueror by running influenced maps, you can start to find their Citadel. Quest markers will appear on Zana and Kirac. Talk to Kirac to locate the Citadel, then Zana to open up the portals to it. Complete the map, and defeat the boss. A portal to the Conqueror will appear next to the boss’s dead body. You have 6 tries to do so, else the Conqueror will escape and you’ll have to start chasing them again.
He’s the only Atlas boss who deals Chaos Damage. Fittingly, his triangular arena also has a pool in the middle of it. Make sure to pay attention to your positioning as depending on the current phase, it may or may not be beneficial to stand in it.
You’ll also have to dodge the attacks of the Wyverns and Vipers he summons. Mobility is key, though again watch out for the pool in the middle.
He has certain combos such as a stab combo that ends with a slam. There’s also his volley of poison projectiles when you’re far away, or his sweep then projectile combo. Watch him learn his tells so you can move appropriately. When he fires a giant wyvern, it also fills the pool with acid. Some vipers will spawn from the pool and Al-Hezmin will keep on running away from you. This is also the phase where you avoid stepping into the middle part of the arena.
Defend yourself with PoE items that give resistance to Chaos Damage. The PoE Unique Zahndethus’ Cassock can give 40-50% Chaos Resistance, for example. Of course, you can also craft one yourself, as there’s also your character’s build to factor in. Not every unique item can fit all kinds of builds, and only a handful of them gives Chaos Resistance anyway.
What Do Hunter’s Exalted Orbs Do Anyway?
These PoE orbs can add a unique Hunter’s affix (prefix: Hunter’s, suffix: of the Hunt) onto a rare PoE item. You cannot use it on PoE uniques. Though it only appears as either of those two indicated, it can have a variety of effects. It depends on what kind of Path of Exile item you used it on and how lucky you are at rolling.
Effects range from adding projectile piercing strength to adding elemental damage to attacks. There’s also the more normal +x% to Health or even add levels to socketed gems. The strength of these modifiers depends on the level of the Path of Exile item. Higher-leveled PoE items make PoE orbs roll a stronger effect. There’s a huge pool of useful effects to discover, and if you want to get the best results you’ll have to farm the boss.
That’s how you farm Al-Hezmin for his Hunter’s Exalted Orbs. Of course, you can also trade for them, but where’s the fun in that? Figuring out the best builds to use for this battle and actually fighting him can be so much fun. Then again, when you’ve done it so many times it can become really tedious. It is, after all, farming PoE currency, an incredibly repetitive and time-consuming activity.
At any rate, you can try fighting the other Conquerors for a break in farming. That way you can break the monotony and you won’t tire of farming too quickly. This is also the way to get the opportunity to fight Sirus, Awakener of Worlds. That is the final boss of the expansion, so gear up for a really difficult fight.
Keep on enjoying Path of Exile!
Path of Exile – How Trading Works
In Path of Exile, the art of trading plays a huge part. This isn’t such a huge surprise, given that there are so many lucrative items within the game and the way in which PoE currency works makes the PoE trade system work very well. Despite this system being in place, the game itself doesn’t explain how it works all too well.
With that in mind, here are a few pointers to help get you started on how trading works in the popular ARPG.
About Chaos Orbs
There are a few different forms in which PoE currency represents itself in Path of Exile. You would normally be expecting to see the likes of gold or coins or something along those lines to be used in a game such as this, though this isn’t the case here. Path of Exile instead opts for Chaos Orbs, which are the closest thing you will get to how currency is represented, and the value is related to other PoE items that you find.
These PoE orbs are the most sought-after PoE currency in the game, due to the effect they have in which they randomize the modifiers of an item that you have found. They are a very rare find which means that they don’t suffer from the likes of inflation as other in-game currencies usually would, and they can eventually be used to make very powerful gear.
How PoE Trading Works
As for the trading mechanic itself, Path of Exile doesn’t provide you with an in-game method of performing trading. If you do want to be able to trade with other players, then you are going to have to get in touch with other players, before heading to a hideout to get started with the trade. You would need to keep an eye on the in-game chat in case someone mentions an item that you are looking for.
This is one of the downsides of manual trading. You are having to rely on keeping watch of the chat until the opportunity for the PoE item that you want presents itself. You will then have to hit the ‘whisper’ option so you can get their information and add it to the chat. You can then use this as a form of communication between you and the other player. To help aid this process, there is a resource website known as PoE Trade, so read on if you would like to know more about how you can trade a bit easier in Path of Exile.
So now you have a bit more of an idea of how PoE currency and trading works, you will want to know about the aspect of trading in terms of where it takes place. Again, as mentioned earlier, this is something that isn’t exactly made clear by the game itself. That being said, it does have a huge role to play in the community, and in this particular instance, it comes from a resource known as PoE Trade.
The PoE.Trade site is a tool that players can use to see which PoE items are being traded. You can also put-up items that you would like to offer as well as search for Path of Exile items you need. You can see how much the trade would be valued at and go from there. There are a lot of filters if you are looking for something specific too, so you can see what league the item is being offered within and much more.
With that being said, you should now take the time to take a look at the site itself and acclimatize yourself to it. Once you have a better idea of how the trading works and how the site operates, you can then start to look into taking trading more seriously. See how others have put up offers or even purchase an item that you have been looking for if necessary, to help you get your head around it.
One certainty in Path of Exile is that there is a fair amount for you to get your head around, especially where trading is concerned. Hopefully, you have a bit of a better idea of what you can expect from the likes of PoE trade and how PoE currency works so that you can make the most of it. Once you have gotten your head around the website itself, you should have no problems in getting comfortable with the ways of trading in Path of Exile.

OSRS Unusual Weapon Special Attacks
The ignored but useful ones
While adventuring through Gielinor, you’ll find many things. One category of those things is weapons with Special Attacks. Those are sort of alternate uses of the weapon. It needs the Special Attack Gauge to be filled to a certain level to activate. While it doesn’t raise a weapon’s value drastically, it adds utility to the otherwise boring weapon. For comparison, the Twisted Bow doesn’t have a Special attack, but it’s priced at 1B OSRS GP. Then again, it is quite a rare drop, and the difficulty of the raid factors in that price.
Anyway, here are some unusual ignored but useful special attacks.
Ancient Mace – Favor of the War God
While the Ancient Mace is quite a weak weapon, its Special Attack shines. It can drain the target’s Prayer by 100% of the attack, meaning you get the same amount. This attack also lets your Prayer go over the limit, so you don’t have to worry about the extra points. As an added bonus, the attack goes ignores Protect from Melee Prayers. It’s great for regaining Prayer Points. Uses up 100% of the Special Attack bar.
Abyssal Bludgeon – Penance
Though having low Prayer Points is generally not recommended, the Abyssal Bludgeon can turn it into a boon. With its Special Attack, every lost point means a 0.5% increase in attack. Costs 50% of the bar to activate.
Seercull – Soulshot
For all PvP fanatics, the Seercull could be the biggest boon (if the user) or bane (if the target) on the battlefield. At the cost of 100% of the gauge, Soulshot will guarantee a hit that also lowers the target’s Magic level by the damage dealt. Enemy casting Ice Barrage? Soulshot shoots the attempt down. It only works once per target, so it loses effectiveness when fighting bosses. The damage can’t be increased by Ranged Prayers nor the Slayer Helmet.
Barrelchest Anchor – Sunder
This weapon is already amply accurate and strong, but its Special Attack makes it even more so. In exchange for 50% of the Special Attack gauge, Sunder increases accuracy and max damage by 10%. Then it also lowers the target’s Attack, Defense, Ranged, or Magic by 10% of the damage dealt. Only one will be lowered, decided randomly as long as the levels are higher than 1. Unlike Soulshot, the effects can stack.
Arclight/Darklight – Weaken
Continuing the trend of Special Attacks that weaken enemies, using these swords’ attack uses up 50% of the bar. It then lowers the Strength, Attack, and Defense of the target by 5% of their max level. The attack lowers it by 10% when facing demons. The effects proc when the weapon hits accurately, and it stacks as well.
Zamorak Godsword – Ice Cleave
Having the Zamorak Godsword is like knowing a single-target version of the Ice Barrage spell. While not as useful as other Godsword Special Attacks, being able to freeze enemies for 20 seconds can be useful in certain situations. That includes PvP and PvM situations. It costs half of the bar, and the attack must hit for the freezing effect to take hold. Good thing the attack also increases accuracy and max hit.
That’s Only a Taste
There are even more useful but ignored Special Attacks in OSRS. There’s the purely defensive Power of Death from the (Toxic) Staff of the Dead or Staff of Light. Then there’s the Crystal Halberd’s Sweep. Weapons with these kinds of attacks aren’t rare at all, so if you take the time to research, there’s bound to be one that’s quite useful but only for niche situations.
So go out and discover more Special Attacks! Weapons are everywhere, from quest rewards and monster drops to endless listings in the GE. For sure, you’ll need OSRS GP to hunt or buy it, so be sure to always stock up on it. Gielinor is filled with interesting stories and mysteries. All you have to do is to find them. Have fun exploring and adventuring in OSRS!
10 Things You Shouldn’t Do in Valorant
Valorant is a popular free-to-play tactical-based, first-person shooter. Two teams of five square off against each other in various game modes. The main draw of Valorant, Competitive mode, pits the two teams against each other in a series of short rounds—up to 35—and the winning team is whoever nabs the most victories.
Valorant is often a slower-paced, methodical game that rewards cooperation, communication, and strategizing. Players choose from a pool of unique characters each equipped with their own special abilities. Each character has one ‘Ultimate-like’ ability that can often be the key to victory or a successful defensive stand.
As with all shooter games, Valorant does have a bit of a learning curve to it. Below are 10 things that you shouldn’t do while playing Valorant.
- Don’t Be Silent
Valorant, above all else, is a team-based game. Neglecting to communicate with your team could—and likely will—be detrimental to securing a victory. Clear communication and a mindful awareness of your surroundings are crucial elements. Calling out the location of a player on the opposing team not only alerts your teammates to the location but tells whoever is closest to be on their guard. Not plugging in your microphone, or keeping silent for the game, is a counter-productive action that essentially gives the other team a decisive advantage.
- Don’t Panic Ult
Panic Ulting is when a player uses their Ultimate ability in the heat of battle during a non-advantageous time. Using Raze’s Showstopper on a single enemy early in the round seems like a sure-fire way to cripple the other team and give your team a one-up, but it could also severely hinder your team and lead to you being eliminated. Had you entered a shootout and won, you could’ve used Showstopper on a duo you later encountered or had you forfeited the first battle and regrouped, you might’ve been able to launch Showstopper on the enemy team as they made a break for the victory.
- Don’t Shoot Before You Aim
Shooting before aiming is almost a guarantee that you’ll lose the skirmish. Getting down the sights quickly is key but taking a moment to aim at your opponent could be the key to victory. If both players just spray and pray, it’s a coin toss on who wins. But if you size your opponent up, and they negate doing the same to you, your chances of surviving that encounter are far greater.
- Don’t Run into Open Space
Valorant is a game that relies on cover and strategy. Players often post up in advantageous spots and wait for players to make a mistake. Running out into the open all willy-nilly is that mistake. In Valorant, it’s best to assume that you’re never safe to be without cover. Always act as though an open space is a certified death sentence. If you run into the middle of the map without a teammate watching your back, just go ahead and consider yourself eliminated.
- Don’t Always Go to the Same Spot Each Round
Becoming predictable is the easiest way for the enemy team to take you out at the start of the round. If you always go to the same spot, they’ll catch on and know to look for you. When you make that critical corner peek, they’ll be aiming down the sights waiting for you. Mix it up and take different control points to avoid becoming predictable and giving the opposing team an advantage.
- Don’t Spend Your Credits Wildly
Managing your credits between rounds is crucial to winning. Don’t always load up on the best gun you can get. You need to save credits for armor and abilities. If your team gets snowballed in round one, considering holding off on buying anything in the round too. This is referred to as “Saving” and can help give your team an advantage in later rounds.
- Don’t Carelessly Create Noise
Sound is a key element in Valorant. Players can hear you running, falling from a higher spot, reloading, shooting, and using abilities. Walking is silent, so it’s best to walk as much as possible. There are certainly times when running is necessary, like when rushing a point or escaping a spike, but knowing when to make noise and when not to is an important aspect of Valorant.
- Don’t Reload too Often
In shooter games, most players are accustomed to reloading after every kill. This has become standard in games like Call of Duty, Halo, and Battlefield where it takes more shots to take down an enemy. But in Valorant, teams move together in pairs—and even 3-5 person units—so when you take down an enemy, it’s likely that another is waiting in the wings to counterattack you. If you get caught while reloading, it’s game over for you. Be mindful of your ammunition, and if you still have enough ammo left for another firefight, refrain from reloading until you’re sure that you won’t be ambushed.
- Don’t Run and Gun
Unlike Apex, Overwatch, Warzone, and the like, running and gunning in Valorant is not a sound strategy. It can work, but it’s not reliable. Enemy players are often behind cover or set up in an advantageous spot waiting to get the drop on someone. Valorant isn’t Halo, you’re likely not running around a corner and taking out three people while jumping and dodging. The hitbox in Valorant is far too unforgiving for that.
- Don’t Just Run to the Spike
You have 45 seconds to defuse the Spike once it’s planted. There’s no need to run in without checking your surroundings and strategizing with your team about how to defuse it. If you’re not the only one left alive on your team, communicate and figure out the best approach.
Valorant is a game with a lot of depth and a lot to do. From ranked wins to Agent Contracts, the number of things to get done can seem overbearing. Don’t fret, services like Boosting Ground’s Valorant Boosting have top-notch professional gamers that can help players. Looking for that next tier on your Agent Contract? They can help you get it. The service is legal, safe, and secure. Their professional gamers are there to help you with whatever you need.
