The horses, selected and allocated by a lot just three days before the Palio race, must run bareback and there are only six trials beforehand.
The dangerous “Curva di San Martino” curve forming a 95° angle, is slightly downhill and sloping diagonally with a height difference of more than a meter. It is the most difficult section, where at times accidents do happen. This curve is often the spot where the outcome of the race is decided.

يتمّ اختيار الخيول وتوزيعها بالقرعة قبل ثلاثة أيام فقط من موعد سباق باليو وعلى الخيول أن تجري بدون سرج وتتوفر ستة اختبارات مسبقة فقط.
يشكل منحنى سان مارتينو الخطير زاوية 95 درجة وينحدر قليلاً بشكل مائل لأكثر من متر. إنه الجزء الأصعب وقد تحصل حوادث هناك كما يعد هذا المنحنى المكان الذي يحدد نتيجة السباق.
