Racing Colours

One of the privileges of racehorse ownership is designing the racing colours, sometimes known as silks, and then seeing them worn by the jockey on your horse. However, you don't need to be a registered owner under the Rules of Racing in order to register colours.

Under the British Horseracing Authority regulations there are only 18 set of colours to choose from - which are all available in our custom silk designer.

No two sets of colours can be exactly the same and must be based on a choice of patterns and shades laid down by the BHA. All new colour registrations must include a unique body and sleeve combination, conforming to these designs. You may check availability online on the BHA website.

100% Pure Silk

Crepe Satin - sometimes known as Crepe de Chine or Habotai - is often used to make cherished colours simply because of the many colours available.

Although pure silk is light weight and gives you a very high class finish, it can be quite difficult to maintain. Pure silk is dry clean only and very delicate.
