A man dressed as a horse betting on horses ridden by men

It was the week of the Cheltenham Races and students dressed as horses were getting drunk, running around the city, putting bets on the races and watching the races in pubs. I thought the image was a satirical play on the relationship of humans to animals, an ironic moment that parodied the role of animal entertainment in human society.
