No More Purple Saddle Cloths at the Breeders' Cup

New, 1 comment
Beginning in 2009, the Breeders' Cup will finally ditch the purple saddle cloths in favor of the traditional multi-colored scheme (Blood-Horse.com: Colored Saddle Cloths for Breeders' Cup). I love the regal purple color untilized by the Breeders' Cup but it is just too difficult to pick out individual horses when they all have the same saddle cloth, even if you are watching an HD broadcast. If you are there in-person it is next to impossible.

Nice change.
