Formerly apprentice jockey to Yorkshire based trainer, Richard Fahey, Freddy’s racing career highlights included winning the Prix de l’Opera at Chantilly aboard the filly Speedy Boarding and being crowned Champion Apprentice in 2009.

Freddy can now be seen as an expert pundit on Sky Sports Racing, the latest channel in the satellite network’s stable.

Freddy joins Alastair Cook and Nick Knight as a brand ambassador for Trotter & Deane.

Like the former England cricketers, we treated Freddy to our famous made-to-measure experience, creating a bespoke suit tailored to his personal specifications. We look forward to seeing him wearing the finished garment on our TV screens in the near future.

What to wear to the races in 2019

If, like Freddy, you’re heading for the racecourse, you’ll want to ensure you look the part. While some meetings require a top hat, others are a lot more casual.

At Cheltenham, for example, there is no specific race day style. It is however suggested that gentlemen in the Club Enclosure or the restaurants and hospitality facilities wear a suit or similar.

Newmarket is more specific in their advice, stating that gentlemen are encouraged to dress up smartly in the Premier Enclosure. Whilst there is no formal restriction on wearing jeans, these are rarely seen in the Premier Enclosure and not permitted in our hospitality areas. If you do wish to wear jeans, they should be dark denim only and certainly not ripped.

Ascot meanwhile, requires black or grey morning dress in the Royal Enclosure, a suit with shirt and tie in the Queen Anne Enclosure, and a jacket, full-length trousers collared shirt and tie in the Village Enclosure.
