First pricing race for camels held in Saham
SAHAM The Royal Camel Corps at the Royal Court Affairs (RCA) organised the first pricing race for camels, at Saih Al Tayebat racing track in the Wilayat of Saham on Wednesday.  It is part of the annual festival for national camel races organised by RCA, represented by the Royal Camel Corps for the 2012-2013 season.

The race included 10 rounds for various categories of camels, including Al Haja’ej, Laqaya, Yadaa’, Thanaya, and Al Houl.

The Royal Camel Corps bought camels that won the first place in each round to encourage camel owners to continue taking part in camel races and preserving the ancient heritage.

The results of the 10 rounds are as follows:

In the first round, allocated for Al Haja’ej camel, Gabbarah camel, owned by Sami Bin Al Hamdi Al Dar’ei from the Wilayat of Adam came first.

In the second round, for Al Haja’ej camel, Hamloula camel, owned by Hamood Bin Al Sagheir Al Wahibi from the Wilayat of Al Qabel, came first.

In the third round, for Al Haja’ej, the first place was excluded because of hybridization, according to the competition committee.

In the fifth round, for Laqaya, Al Shahiniyah camel, owned by Mohamed Bin Said Al Gahafi from the Wilayat of Al Mudhaibi, came first.

In the seventh round, allocated for Yadaa’, Al Shahiniyah camel, owned by Saud Bin Ali Bin Hamad Al Wahibi, came first.
