And of course - 'The Shoe' - Willie Shoemaker

At 38 ounces (1.1 kg), Shoemaker was so small at birth that he was not expected to survive the night. Put in a shoebox on the oven to stay warm, he survived, but remained small, growing to 4 feet 10 inches (1.47 m) and weighing 91 pounds (41 kg).

There was a jockey in Cambridge in the 60's called David Bell. His nickname was Ding Dong. 

Nigel Landers had two unflattering nicknames which I won't reveal. Rev would know!
