Horse in tailored tweed suit is the best thing you’ll see today

Morestead is one lucky guy. He’s just become the first racehorse in the world to have a full three-piece tweed suit, complete with hat and tie, constructed just for him.

The suit was created by celebrity stylist Emma Sandham-King, and probably cost more than your entire wardrobe. It was designed to promote England’s Cheltenham Festival, which, according its website “…epitomises and encompasses everything that is great about Jump racing.” 

The four-day festival will attract close to a quarter million viewers, and hopefully they’ll all get a chance to see Morestead decked out in his new threads. 

He looks so charming, it kind of makes you wish he could talk.

Whoa, easy there, boy. Maybe it’s better if you don’t talk after all.

Although watching a horse jump over fences in a suit and tie would be amazing, he’s probably going to ditch the fancy duds when race time rolls around. That’s OK, because according to William Hill, over 200 miles of tweed will be worn at this year’s festival, so there’ll be no shortage of spiffy suits to gawk at.
