Watch camel racing at Al Shahaniya Racetrack. Visitors to the track have a unique opportunity to see the so-called "sport of the sheiks." This expensive and luxurious sporting event represents a unison of modern and ancient sports. Learn about the way the camels race, as it is quite different from other races. The jockeys are remote-controlled robots, and they can pull the reins and give commands to the camels, which weigh around 25 kg (53 lbs) and cost about $5,000.
