Horse Racing/saddle towels


I will be celebrating my birthday at the Monterey Fairgrounds.

I want to use saddle towel as tablecloths.

What is the material used for saddle towels? and what is printed on the towel.

Couldn't find a pattern to make my own

I found information about the numbers.

Try to get an image of one.

I don't know much about saddle towels, but I did a Google search for "what are saddle towels made of" and got good results.  I recommend that you try that.  I did see that one site says the towels are made of poplin and another said "65% cotton and 35% polyester."  That site also said they can put printing on the towel.

I hope this helps a little.
