Q8) How many sets of silks do I need?
The number of sets of silks needed depends on how many horses you have and
to how many tracks you ship. As an owner, you usually have a program in mind and
your horses run under similar conditions. That means you could easily have two
horses in the same race, requiring two sets of silks. Another reason for
multiple sets is running horses on the same card - the silks are washed after
each use and may not be ready in time for the next race.
Even if you only race one horse, you'll probably want two sets. One is for
the jocks room and one is for travel, stakes races or merely as a backup.
