Jockeys might be small in stature. On average, they stand about 5 feet and weigh around 100 pounds. But don't let their size fool you.
They are some of the most elite athletes in sports, packing superhuman strength into their small bodies with the instincts to guide 1,000-pound animals around racetracks at 40 miles an hour.
Not all jockeys are created equal, though. The best win thousands of horse races and make hundreds of millions of dollars in career earnings.
These are the greatest jockeys in the history of horse racing.
