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.
The winner gallops along with his admirers.
Traditionally fans touch the winning horse for a bit of good fortune in their future.
