Archibald Primrose, 5th Earl of Rosebery – A swatch of the earl’s primrose-yellow and rose quartz pink jockey silks remain in the companies archive’s Racing Colours ledgers.

“When Archibald Primrose, 5th Earl of Rosebery (1847-1929), was a boy he declared that he had three aims in life: to win the Derby, to marry an heiress and to become prime minister. Primrose was only four when his father died and he inherited the title Lord Dalmeny as heir to his grandfather, the 4th Earl of Rosebery. Educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford, Rosebery bought his first horse, Ladas, in 1868, when he acceded to the earldom. Owning a horse was against college rules; told by Christ Church to choose between his studies and Ladas, Rosebery chose the racehorse. Ladas was the first of Rosebery’s three Derby winners and eleven British Classic race winners. …” Extract taken from ‘Henry Poole & Co – The First Tailor of Savile Row’
