As others have said, I can see it happening in certain circumstances, but not ones like this. Maybe if there was a deal with discounted training fees, on the understanding that they get a portion of the winnings, or if they're handling them or showing themselves. But if you're paying a handling fee, plus costs for them to come down, and you paid for all the training I think it's not at all reasonable.
I can see the benefit of doing it though, for both parties, as an incentive for trainers to be honest and really put the right amount of time in, and for them to get recognition for good work, but to me it really would have to be paired with discounted training or showing fees, and negotiated well in advance.
