LONDON -- The humpbacked beasts of burden rumbled along the banks of the River Thames in a nation that is home to Wimbledon and Wembley: Camel racing had arrived in Britain.
Sarah and Sharifa took part in the three races of about 50 meters Thursday. Sarah won all three, galloping across Potters Field in the shadows of Tower Bridge and into the winner's circle for a champagne celebration.
"After months of training, winning was the best feeling in the world," said Andy Probert, Sarah's jockey. "This is a dream come true."
