    Does anyone know of any websites out there where, if I input racing colours, it’ll tell me whose colours they are?

    :shrug:

    Thanks in advance.

    I don’t know if there is such a site or not.

    Is there a particular set of colours you want to know. If so post it up and somebody might know who owns them.

    The colours aren’t terribly clear – that’s one of the problems, but I’ve tried to make them out the best I can (from a picture I was given at the weekend).

    Jockey number one:<br>(what looks like) Lime green body & sleeves, lime green cap. (No patterns anywhere from what I can see.)

    Jockey number two:<br>yellow body with something grey on it, plain yellow sleeves, yellow cap.

    Sorry for the utter vagueness but it’s kind of a half profile view too so I can’t make out what pattern is on the second jockey. I don’t even know if it’s English!

    The first set of silks could be John Fretwell’s but the second have me foxed.

    The only thing I could have thought the second one might have been was the owner of Cassandra Go who had yellow silks with silver/grey chevrons on the body but I would have thought that would have been more obvious as there was so much grey involved.

    Is John Fretwell the owner of the juveniles trained by Eoghan O’Neill (apologies for spelling mistakes there if there are some!)?

    He certainly is,his horses used to run in black and red quartered colours if I recall and he bought the current colours earlier on this year.

    The Cassandra Go colours are those of Trevor Stewart, essentially Primrose and Grey Hoops. Mrs Denis Haynes’s colours are Primrose with a Grey Sash.

    France-Galop has a colour check system – put in the colours and it tells you if they are registered, or who they belong too.  mergecolourHowever, it only covers France. :( <br>(It’s quite fun, though).

    The only owner with the yellow/grey combination as described is Gerard Andre, but he hasn’t had any runners in Britain recently, nor in the three races that Fretwell’s horses have competed in abroad recently.

    Can’t see a recent race it could be here, but still looking.

    After reading bears post about Silks i was wandering what is your favourite coloured silks in racing  in both flat and NH? I like the black silks of magnier on the flat and in the NH i like Malcom Denmarks who has most of his horses with Mark Pitman.

    I’ve always been fond of Khalid Abdullah’s on the flat since the great years of Warning, Rainbow Quest and of course, the magnificent Dancing Brave.

    Well, i would call it black as well. It is such a dark shade of blue, that it practically IS black. Agreed, i love them as well,

    Rock of Gibraltar’s silks were beautiful, abdullah’s as well, cheveley park stud’s, tabor’s and the elite club’s are ok.

    Sorry for being picky but I think Magniers are actually navy not black.

    I don’t really have a favourite set of silks as such although I get a buzz from seeing a race with all the top owners being represented (Goldophin, Magnier, Khallid Abdullah, Chevley Park, Aga Khan, etc) Really gives the impression of a top-class race.

    This site is quite good regarding solid colours:
