Blessing of the Horse
The blessing of the horse is a magical experience that is held on the afternoon of the Palio’s race in each Contrada’s church. This is one of the most important aspects of the race, which highlights the important religious element of the competition.

تُعتبر مباركة الخيل تجربةً ساحرة تُقام خلال سباق باليو في فترة بعد الظهر في كنائس كل المقاطعات. تُعتبر المباركة أحد أهم مظاهر السباق وتلقي الضوء على العنصر الديني المهم في المنافسة. تبارك مقاطعة دراجون الخيل في الخارج فيما تبعد كنيسة المقاطعة على بُعد خطواتٍ في الأعلى. يبارك الكاهن الفارس والخيل ويقول في الخطاب الأخير: "اذهب وعُد فائزاً!"
