EARLIER THIS YEAR, a massive internet debate broke out regarding exactly how a dog would wear a pair of trousers if they were so inclined.

The answer was pretty impressive as the veteran racehorse Morestead shows wearing his Harris Tweed suit, specially commissioned by bookmaker William Hill to celebrate the opening of the festival.
