First Saluki racetrack to be set up in Abu Dhabi by 2009

Reading, London - The first Saluki racetrack will be set up in Abu Dhabi within the next two years as part of the Emirates' bid to promote its national heritage, said officials yesterday at an international event held in the UK.

"A standard racetrack will be constructed that will meet the international standards, as we aim to hold international race competitions for salukis," said Hamad Ganem Al Ganem, Director, Breeder and Registrar General of the Arabian Saluki Centre.

The Saluki, commonly known as the Royal dog of Egypt, is perhaps the oldest known breed of domesticated dog. The Saluki is a member of the sight hound family, which means that they hunt by sight rather than scent. Speaking on the sidelines at the first International Festival of Falconry that is being held in Reading, July 14-15, Al Ganem said that the purpose for participating in the festival was to promote the Arabian Saluki and hopefully to encourage potential buyers.
