With same horse and jockey, the Lupa wins the Palio again in 2016!
This week, the Contrada (or ward) of the Lupa (She Wolf) won the Palio di Siena, the famous horse race held twice each year in Siena.
With the same horse and the same jockey, the Lupa was once again the first ward to cross the finish line in the same year.
This hasn’t happened since 1933!
Locally, they call this a cappotto meaning a mantle, as in a sleeveless coat.
And the video of this week’s Palio follows below.
