Brightly colored jockey silks made their first recorded appearance in early horse racing events in Italy during the Middle Ages; riders chose brightly colored outfits to distinguish themselves from their competitors.
Traditionally, the jacket isn’t form fitting. Today however, these materials can be designed to form fit the body, adding an aerodynamic advantage. In horse-racing, anything that can help gain a lead is a plus.
CONSIDER TAKING YOUR SILKS TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Patrons are often unsure where to place their bets and may just pick the horse with the most eye-catching silks!
