Why such a long face? Well, William Hill may have finally answered that question with its horse in a designer suit stunt.
The venerable UK betting house created the world’s “very first Harris Tweed suit for a racehorse” in celebration of the recent Cheltenham Festival.
It took four weeks and 18 metres of Harris Tweed to fashion a suit befitting veteran race horse Morestead. The horse modelled the garb with racing royalty, jockey Sir Anthony McCoy at his side – and on his back.
McCoy, a 20-time champion, noted that Cheltenham “is the most fashionable event in the racing calendar.”
And since no horse should be left behind, Emma Sandham-King, a former Alexander McQueen apprentice, was summoned to design the unusual attire.
