Silks steeped in history re-registered by Old Gold Racing

Published 2019/11/19

The silks were originally made using ‘old gold’ - an unusual colour in racing - and now this has been worked into the new design which will prove distinctive and eye catching on the racecourse when they are worn by the jockeys riding horses owned by the syndicate.

With an old gold body, white cap and white chevron, they’ll be easy to spot on the track.

Ed Seyfried, Chief Executive and Founder of Old Gold Racing said: “My Great-Grandfather, Ronnie Holbech, first registered the shade old gold in his owner’s silks back in the 1930s.

“As a director of Banbury Brewers Hunt Edmunds, his silks were aptly designed to symbolise the gilded beery forth of pale ale and in 1945 his horse Paladin carried the silks home, finishing third place in the Cheltenham Gold Cup.pastedGraphic_1.png “Old Gold Racing’s mission is to win big races in our very own distinctive Old Gold silks; and we look forward to welcoming a new and diverse audience to the world of horse racing through a modern digital platform and a cost-effective ownership experience.”
