On Thursdays and Fridays, the Dubai Camel Racecourse plays
host to the popular local sport of camel racing. The camel racing season runs
from November to March and racing begins early in the morning. Camel Racing is
a major sport in Dubai and the track is located on the outskirts of the city at
Nad Al Sheba (which also offers the only fully floodlit 18-hole golf course in
the Middle East).
