Frequently Asked Questions

Jockey Silks


Q13)  Where are silks kept and who cleans them?

Within the jockeys' locker room is the colors room. There is a Color Custodian (track employee) whose job it is to keep silks in an orderly manner, provide them to the valets for each race, and wash and dry them after each use.

A track's local silksmaker often works with the track to make minor repairs to silks.

You can ship silks to the Color Custodian for your race day or hand deliver them to him. You may also pick them up from the Color Custodian if you are not going to race for a while or want to store them yourself.


Thanks to Classic Silks USA for their help with this topic.
