Joel doesn't miss any more days than Eddie D did, plus his sheer number of rides says he does show up occasionally.
If hard work was the ONLY criteria, Joy Scott would be in the top ten every year.
Joy Scott IS in MY Top 10.
Heck, she's in my top 3 of all time, along with Chantel and now Inez.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Joel misses a lot of days, way more than any other jock out here, for shits and giggles lets keep count, compare him to anyone else on the circuit, maybe he has a bad stomach or something, but he's out far more than any other jock, even the top senior jocks are here more than he is.
I sort of think there is more to JR leaving the goof, can it be similar to PVal , it's big cash JR is making and you get more groupies trying to reach for your wallet, i hope not but fast horses and cars and women really can distort your vision, the goof if you read this , are you or seen any indication of any substance abuse, or anyone else on backstretch know.

I wouldn't label him a primadonna. I have no idea of his deeper character traits..
But I will say this.. Many of us were brought up to be loyal and to take care of those that take care of us.. Our parents, our employers, our friends, and such.. With that said, I think Vic got a raw deal. Vic took Joel to the mountain top. For that achievement and effort, I think Joel owed Vic a little more openness and straightforward communication.. and a little more time to get it all worked out..
I don't know anything about substance abuse, but I do remember reading somewhere that it was Joel's old lady that had a problem with Vic representing two riders.
The rumors around Stauffer and Rosario was there was a riff between Joel, his significant other and Vic, over Martin Garcia. The significant other had a hand in the firing of Vincent De Gregory before Vic took over Joel's book, so there may be some intervention from the homefront on whom Joel does business with.

I think there is NO CHANCE that Joel has ANYTHING that can be compared to P.Val. Nothing! When I was working for him I would have liked to see him have a little more fire in his soul for the craft. I'd liked to have seen him Cowboy up a little more. But that's it. I think Joel is a very fine young man. Remember he's only 24. Making millions and being pulled in many different directions. He's going to be one of the greats!. It's a process.
