The fancy new racecourse which is a 40km drive from the town, with two swish grandstands and also a floodlit track especially to conduct night racing during the time of Ramadan.Traditionally, the action takes place right on the track, with the spectators joining owners, as still done by the Emiratis, following the long-lashed beauties on the track in their 4WDs, while urging on their pride. The exceptionally erratic driving of the owners can be very entertaining, racing at the dashing speed up to 60km/h.There was a time when the use of young jockeys was a contentious issue but now robotic jockeys ride you to the ships of the desert, which is operated by a remote control. It is a very curious sight that depicts camels and robots lolloping out of dust, and the 4WDs creating a havoc on the course. Don’t forget to take your cameras to capture this life-time experience.
