Camel racing is a spectacle in itself as camels aren’t envisioned as animals that can run at fast speeds. Camel racing was considered as a sport that would unite the Emiratis because of their love for camels. These majestic creatures were considered as a prized possession and an indicator of a man’s wealth. The more camels, the wealthier. To continue this tradition there are camel races held every Saturday and Friday in the AL Wathba Camel Race Track in Abu Dhabi. Located in the out-reaches of the modern metropolitan, the racetrack give us a snippet of Emirati favorites that are enjoyed by old and young alike. Camel racing has withstood the test of time and camels usually race for cash or car prizes. See camels of different colors all lined up for a challenge of speed. Observe these creatures compete to the finish line and have a wonderful time witnessing how much love and appreciation these animals receive from the Emiratis.
