    Background: ADEN'S RACEGOERS HAVE TO BE QUITE VERSATILE WHEN THEY'RE STUDYING FORM. FOR THEY HAVE TO PICK A WINNER FROM BOTH HORSES - AND CAMELS.

    EUROPEANS AND ARABS CROWDED THE KHORMAKSAR RACE COURSE LAST SATURDAY TO TRY THEIR LUCK WITH THE BOOKMAKERS. MOST OF THE JOCKEYS - SOME THEM WOMEN - WERE AMATEURS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE. THESE INCLUDED BRITISH TROOPS BASED IN THE PROTECTORATE.

    FOUR OF THE RACES WERE FOR HORSES ONLY, BUT THE FIFTH WAS RESERVED FOR CAMELS. AN EXCITING RACE AND A CLOSE FINISH - THE WINNER WAS IN FRONT BY A SHORT HUMP.
