** A subverted example of "Expecting Someone Shorter": [[http://www.upi.com/Odd_News/2003/07/25/Limp-Seabiscuit-hobbles-onscreen/13331059156002/ One reviewer]] called Creator/TobeyMaguire, who played Red Pollard, "the world's tallest jockey". Maguire is 5'8" (173 cm), which ''is'' exceptionally tall for a jockey. The subversion: the real-life Pollard was 5'7".

Derby-winning, Hall of Fame jockey. Stevens had retired from race riding at the book, time of the descriptions of all film, but returned to the stuff jockeys did sport later and is still riding in 2016.
* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: War Admiral is described as being 18 hands high, while Seabiscuit himself is described as being "barely fifteen hands". In reality, Seabiscuit was 15.2 and War Admiral only an inch taller at 15.3. The most notable physical differences between them in real life (War Admiral was almost a hundred pounds lighter but had legs several inches longer than Seabiscuit's, and was overall a more refined horse) would have been difficult
to stay thin.portray in film.
