Cappotto literally means winter coat. They say cappotto when a contrada wins both the Palio of July 2 and that of August 16. Then you are facing a very warm winter (after all, you have won twice). Cavalli can also do a cappotto, whether or not for the same contrada. Below is an overview, including cavalli who make a cappotto with at least 1 straordinario instead of July and August since 1900.
* these horses won 2 palios in one year of which at least 1 straordinario
** In addition to the 2 regular palios, Gaudenzia also won the straordinario of 5 September (Leocorno) that year
*** Uberta De Mores won no less than 4 palios in succession but always in combination with a straordinario
