By on Monday, March 14, 2016

In a photo-led stunt ahead of this week’s Cheltenham Festival, betting company William Hill has had a tweed suit created for veteran racehorse Morestead.

Seamstresses and tailors managed to fashion the three piece suit in four weeks. According to Sky News, Emma Sandham-King and her team used 18 metres of Harris Tweed for the outfit – 10 times more than is usually needed for a standard suit.

The outfit was unveiled by champion jockey Sir Tony (AP) McCoy, dressed in a similar suit.
