Competitive by his nature and passionately interested in sports since a very early age, during high school Pat discovered wrestling. Although scoring a real success winning the state wrestling championship during his teenage years, he dreamed of becoming a bull-riding rodeo cowboy, which somehow came true but as a thoroughbred jockey in the early 1970s.

With his small but rather strong physique, Day had no problems adapting to horse riding, and began his path to success when he won at Arizona’s Prescott Downs in 1973. In the course of the next several years, Pat steadily climbed the ladder to the top, and by the end of the 1970s he was already ranked among the nation’s top jockeys as well as Kentucky’s Churchill Downs’ leading rider. All these accomplishments helped Pat Day to establish himself as a young and prominent thoroughbred rider, which also provided the basis for his current, rather impressive, net worth.

The real breakthrough in Pat Day’s horse-racing career occurred in 1985 when, after winning the Jockey Club Gold Cup, Clark Handicap and Preakness Stakes among several others, he was honored with the George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award. In 1992 he won his only Triple Crown of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes. It is certain that all these achievements helped Pat Day to add a significant sum to the total amount of his revenues.

Despite being often criticized for his patient and sometimes quite passive riding style, Pat Day is at the very top in the world of jockeying – during his 32-year long riding career he scored 8,804 becoming No. 4 in wins on the all-time list, with the total earnings of around $298 million ranking him No. 3 in the history of the horseracing. His professional portfolio also includes over a dozen prestigious awards such as four Eclipse Awards, six U.S. Champion Jockey and Mike Venezia Memorial Award. Pat Day officially retired from his professional career in August 2005. For his immaculate career rankings and general contribution to the riding sports, Pat Day was honored with induction into the Hall of Fame by the National Museum of Racing in 1991.

Since June 2016, Pat Day has served as a member of the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission.

When it comes to his personal life, Pat Day has managed to keep it private and far from the public eye as there aren’t any relevant data about his personal matters and affairs except that he has been married to Sheila Johnson since 1979.
