Lesaa and Qemmah won their races in the male and female categories respectively at the third Arabian Saluki Traditional Racing Festival, which concluded on Saturday in Madinat Zayed, Al Gharbia.

The festival, organised by the Saluki Club of Arabia, was held over a four-day period and saw the hounds chasing an artificial gazelle to the finish line.

While Lesaa took the first spot in the male category, Sarookh and Salek were second and third.

In the female category, Khamlah and Alkhabla occupied the second and third places on the podium after Qemmah crossed the finish line to grab the first spot.

Prize-money and gifts worth over Dh500,000 was on offer to the winners and other podium toppers.

Festival consultant Hamad Al Ghanem said the event had provided Arabian purebred saluki owners the opportunity to test the hunting capabilities of their hounds in a traditional, natural desert setting. – Sport 360°
