The home stretch of the horse racing portion of the Nadaam Festival.

Horse racing at the Nadaam festival is broken up by the age of the horses. I don't know if I ever found out which class horse race this was but I remember it was the most important one. Audience members wait for hours to witness only the home stretch dash to the finish line.
