Chad horse racing

This past Sunday, photographer Jerome Delay spent the afternoon at the hippodrome in N’djamena, Chad, covering Chadian jockeys competing in their weekly races. Every Sunday, the horse races attract hundreds of spectators willing to brave the excruciating heat to watch their favorite sport. Delay is currently in the region documenting the events around Boko Haram and Chadian refugee camps.

Below is a selection of images by Jerome Delay of Sunday’s horse races.
