World’s First Tweed Suit Designed For A Racing Horse

The annual Cheltenham Festival took place this week in Gloucestershire, UK and the popular racing event has become renowned for the tweed outfits many of the spectators wear.

Not to be outdone, veteran racing horse Morestead showed up in a custom three-piece suit made by former Alexander McQueen apprentice, Emma Sandham-King. The dapper suit is a first of its kind and took four weeks and more than 18 m (59 ft) of tweed to make.

Morsetead was accompanied by 20-time champion and former jockey, Sir Anthony McCoy. See below for more photos and video of the dashing Morestead.
