Camel Racing of Arabia

Share with friends :

Camel racing is a popular sport throughout the Arabian Gulf countries, and owning a heard of specially-bred fast camels is apparently considered a symbol of wealth and power. But it’s not the animals what is interesting, it's their weird-looking robot jockeys.

The jockeys are remote controlled by operators driving in cars along the racing tracks, and they whip the camels at the touch of a button.

The most expensive racing camel, a breeding female, was bought in Abu Dhabi, for $2.5 million, even more than the world’s most expensive sheep.
