Interesting article on racing silks in the DRF
Bill Christine - Daily Racing Form - 11/29/12: "Racing silks reflect the game's many personal styles"
Bill Christine's top 10 most iconic silks
His #1: The Phipps Family Stable's all black jacket, with a cherry red cap, the colors were registered in 1932.
What I've been incorrect about is the Calumet silks with ownership being exclusively TNT Stud:
Bill Christine's top 10 most eclectic silks
When Henryk de Kwiatkowski bought bankrupt Calumet in 1992, the colors had already been sold, for $12,000, to a Brazilian businessman. He used them only in Brazil, for one of the Wright heirs had the colors registered in New York. De Kwiatkowski, who died in 2003, raced in red polka dots; his daughter Arianne uses stars instead of polka dots.
Out of interest, and I looked into this before without an answer, did the Morris family silks continue on after the death of Edna Morris in 1997 (at 88 yrs old)? Theirs were the oldest continually used silks in US history - all red and going back to 1895. She did race in them after the death of John in 1985. There was no cited successor in the obit in the NYT's
I don't see any record of racing with her son, Alfred Hennen "Chappy" Morris or his wife Melissa aka Honeybee who is more focused on design ;)
