Someone In England Dressed A Racehorse In A Three-Piece Suit

Because why not.

Posted on

But in his spare time, Morestead loves nothing more than to throw on a designer three-piece suit and do a bit of posing.


Morestead's Harris tweed suit was designed by Alexander McQueen apprentice Emma Sandham-King and took a team of seamstresses and tailors four weeks to create.

Unsurprisingly, there's a lot more tweed involved in a suit for a horse than for a human. Roughly 10 times more, according to Sandham-King.

Who do we have to thank for Morestead's magnificent appearance?

He was dressed by the bookmaker William Hill to mark the start of Cheltenham Festival – the biggest date on the racing calendar after the Grand National.

Lots of excitement is generated around Cheltenham Ladies Day (16 March) when many women head to the races wearing lovely dresses and big hats.
