Silks of famous racehorse owner JP McManus

Can you buy the silks at the end of a race and if so who owns them ?

Answer: I assume you are referring to the silks worn by jockeys for a race. These are chosen and owned by the horse owners to distinguish the horses running for them.

Silk designs, of which there are currently around 12,500 in the UK, are registered with the Jockey Club. It is not possible to purchase them although you may be able to buy copies online.
