Melbourne Cup 2011 Jockey Silks

With the 2011 Melbourne Cup just over 24 hours away, it is time to start studying those jockey silks in order to spot your best pick during the race.

Jockey silks are used in a variety of races throughout the world in order to reveal the identity of a horse mid-race.

Not only are these jockey silks helpful to punters and race-goers, the Melbourne Cup jockey silks allow the race caller to give an accurate assessment of the race as it happens.

There will be 24 unique jockey silks that will feature in the $6 million Melbourne Cup.

Last year’s winner Americain will once again don his notorious racing colours, which resemble the French flag in red, white and blue.

Precedence

Precedence will wear the famous jockey silks of Bart Cummings

Bart Cummings’ famous jockey silks, black and white checks with yellow sleeves, will be worn by Precedence as he attempts to win an historic 13th Melbourne Cup for his trainer in tomorrow’s race.

This year, there will be a number of different Melbourne Cup jockey silks, with 21 of the 24 horses hailing from overseas.

And with seven different international trainers, this year’s Melbourne Cup jockey silks are sure to be as diverse as ever.
