The Palio of Siena

The Palio di Siena is a famous horse race that takes place in Siena twice a year, on July 2nd and August 16th. The participants are ten riders and their horses, that represent ten of the seventeen "contrade", or city wards. The Palio is won by the first horse to cross the finish line; a horse can also win without its rider. It's really interesting to note that the loser of the race is the contrada whose horse came second, not last.
