A nice winter day event...
1 min. 40 sec. or 2 min for 200-meter... It sounds too slow for horse racing...

However, the "BANEI-KEIBA" is so...The Racecource is 200-meter-long straight separate courses with 2 humps in the middle. The corse is covered with over 30-centimeter deep sand, and horses star frpm the gate clear 1-meter high 1st hump and they fight with 1.5-meter high 2nd hump. And the horses pull 500-kilogram or more heavy sleights.... Most of race horses are large-size breed from Hokkaido, Japan. The horses are around 1,000 -kilogram!!

I became a fan of this unique horse racing and visit Obihiro again and take many pics!!
