Though there was much controversy over human rights and treatment of animals, camel races have remained one of the prime experiences in Dubai. Now, to end the arguments, tiny robotic jockeys are replacing the children, who were used as jockeys until 2002. The races are held at the Al Marmoom camel racetrack. The season typically starts in the middle autumn, and finish with the Dubai Camel Festival.
