    I remember reading something about this a few months ago.

    Apparently they are made from a different material and are warmer than the standard breeches.

    surely not – is this the jockeys-blouse equivalent of footballers wearing gloves ?

    there are hundreds of rides across many meetings today yet only one person wears black breeches

    i was thinking maybe he messed up the others and only had one pair and nobody would lend him any

    i haven’t noticed them in the other races so maybe he just wore them for that one race ?

    things like this upset the apple cart

    How many of you guys ever been in the jockeys changing room?

    It’s right behind the weighing room in most cases.

    My guess is….. about none of you…..black? not required jocks have ladies tights on….Yes Ladies Tights…………someone tells me Francome still wearing them

    well, nobody’s answered why he was wearing black breeches, but we have helpfully been told jockeys wear womens tights while using the on-course drug dealer, except john francome who wears them all the time

    why was he wearing black breeches and why was he the only one today ?

    Perhaps brown breeches would be useful on some occasions?

    Brown, the new black?

    I would imagine he’s wearing them because he’ll be paid for doing it.

    That was probably the same jockey Paul Doe who has been wearing them quite a bit on the AWT as well as today.
