According to Equibase:
Top 5 jocks by earning this year are Javier Castellano, Ramon Dominguez, Rafael Bejarano, John Velasquez, and Julien Leparoux.
Top 5 by $ per start are Mike Smith, Mario Guttierez, Valasquez, Dominguez and Bejarano.
Top 5 Win % (using the top 100 jocks according to Equibase) are Russell Baze, Travis Dulkelberger, Clifton Berry, Bejarano, and DeShawn Parker.
Top 5 W-P-S %: Baze, Dunkelberger, Parker, Bejarano, and Dominguez
Looking at Graded Stakes results only:
The top earners are Castellano, Velasquez, Dominguez, Smith, and Leparoux.
$ per start: Eddie Martin Jr., Parker, Guttierez, Julio Garcia, Patrick Valenzuela
Win %: and W-P-S percent are not as meaningful, since several riders have high percentages with very few starts.
Here's who has gotten the most calls for graded stakes races:
Castellano (103 starts), Leparoux (94), Velazquez (84), Rosario (84), Bejarano (75)
Note: none of the above include Dubai World Cup earnings. Things change if you throw those in.
My top 5 (who would I put on my hypothetical graded-stakes runner that I don't own and probably never will):
