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 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.
