what color looks best on a bay?

There's so many bay horses my area showing in neon colors, and so am I. I want my pony to stand out, so what colors look best on a bay horse other than lime green, neon yellow or neon pink ? What do you show your bay in?

Burgundy with grey trim are my mares colors. She also looks smashing in red and royal blue

It's not very shouty, but I think a mid-to-dark blue looks really classy on a bay. Something like a french navy. Otherwise, have you thought about white? Either as contrast against another colour or in its own right - I saw a white beta bridle on a bay arab and I never thought it would have worked but it did...

IMO look for tack colors NOT being used, if you want to stand out. Personally, I agree that burgandy tack looks super on a bay, as well as navy blue, and black.
Consider all of the splashy paints in the show ring trying to stand out among all of the splashy paints. A solid horse would sure catch the judge's eye, right?
Post some pictures for us when you decide. =D

I always thought royal blue stood out beautifully against a bay coat.
