As Heard: A Suit For Your Horse
Written by Ric Chetter on March 14, 2016
Now that all the world’s problems have been solved apparently, a UK bookie wanted to see about making a fashion statement around the track. Yes, that is a 3 piece suit complete with hat for this horse.
The Cheltenham Festival is about to start in Great Britain. This festival features racehorses from all around and spectators who are some how fans of tweed. In an effort to promote the upcoming festival, bookie William Hill contracted seamstress Emma Sandham-King for the production of this get-up.
It took the seamstress and her team about a month to make the stylish 3 piece suit complete with a flat cap. It also took about 20 yards of fine tweed make the suit pictured above. So you know, that is about 10 times the amount of fabric it takes to make one suit for an average sized man.
The horse by the way, is Morestead. The jockey in the picture is Sir Tony McCoy who will not be running in this year’s festival.
Something tells us, the above picture is just ripe for your meme use.
