Hall of Fame and Eclipse Award-winning jockey Gary Stevens was recruited by director Gary Ross to play jockey George Woolf in the 2003 movie Seabiscuit. Woolf replaced Seabicuit’s regular jockey Red Pollard, who had been injured in a horrible training accident. Stevens is depicted in the silks of highly successful California automobile dealer and Thoroughbred owner Charles S. Howard. 

Considered one of the great jockeys of all time, Jerry Bailey is the only rider to win the Eclipse Award seven times. He won the George Woolfe Memorial Jockey Award in 1992 and was inducted into the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame in 1995. His mounts won 5,893 races, including two Kentucky Derbys, two Preakness Stakes, two Belmont Stakes, five Breeders’ Cup Classics, four Dubai World Cups, and many others. Retired from the irons, Bailey now serves as a Thoroughbred racing analyst for NBC Sports. 

The son of a jockey in his native Panama, Lat Pincay Jr. came to America as a contract rider for prominent American owner Fred Hooper. He retired from racing in 2003 as the winningest jockey in history with 9,530 victories. Pincay was the leading U.S. money-winning jockey seven times and won the Eclipse Award for outstanding jockey five times. He was inducted into the Racing Hall of Fame in 1975.
