Trivia: Seabiscuit

  • Cast the Expert: George "the Iceman" Woolf is played by Gary Stevens, a real-life Kentucky Derby-winning jockey.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Spider-Man is a horse jockey!
  • Romance on the Set: Tobey Maguire met his jewelry designer wife on the set.
  • What Could Have Been: The second Santa Anita race, as described in the book, is simultaneously one of the greatest and most heartbreaking episodes in Seabiscuit's career, but is missing from the movie.
  • Expecting Someone Taller: 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.
