While it’s often common practice to dress up to the nines when hitting up the races, have you ever thought that you’d see the horses getting in on the action as well? Unlike those people who dress their dogs in people clothes in horrible taste, one champion horse suits up in tweed, and he looks pretty good.
That’s not one of those ‘two guys in a horse suit’ costumes, that’s a legit horse, racing veteran Morestead, in a suit. To commemorate England’s 2016 Cheltenham Festival bookmakers William Hill commissioned the three-piece tweed suit, the first of its kind in the world. The suit was designed by Emma Sandham-King, a former apprentice of Alexander McQueen. Morestead modeled his slick new threads with champion jockey Sir Anthony McCoy.
The design team spent four weeks making Morestead’s suit which required 18m of tweed. that’s 10 times more than Matt Smith ever wore, and frankly Morestead looks way better in it.
LOOK AT HIS LITTLE HAT! KAWAII!
