Camel Racing Comes To The United States On July 4

Posted in Camel Racing News

July 4 is a special day in the United States as the federal holiday allows most citizens a day off of work for fireworks, food, family, and at certain racetracks across the states, exotic animal racing.

While horse racing may be more popular in the United States, camel racing is king in the Middle East, especially the United Arab Emirates.

Prize money for camels who win races can be more than $2 million. Bull camels can even sell for more than $5 million.

Prize money isn’t that high even for horses at the majority of local horse racing tracks.

The excitement of camel racing will capture American eyes on July 4 at Louisiana Downs, which will host exotic animal races with ostriches and camels racing on the main track between live thoroughbred races.

Later in the month of July, camel racing will entertain guests Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minnesota and at Prairie Meadows in Des Moines, Iowa.

While jockeys will ride the camels at the tracks in the U.S., robotic jockeys are used for young camel racing in the UAE.

The robotic jockeys have a speaker that allows remote trainers to issue commands, and a small whip is operated by remote control from a car driving alongside the camel.
