Look out Kentucky Derby! After living in Reno for the last three years, I final got to go to the Annual International Camel & Ostrich Races in Virginia City! It is the most unique event that you will ever see. Watching jockey’s perched on camels, ostrich, and zebras is a sight that you don’t want to miss. Bring your favorite jockey to see this hilarious event next year. After the races you may even be lucky enough to see a camel duck into a bar to get a drink!
This is the only time that you may ever get the chance to ride a Camel, an Ostrich, or a Zebra! Next year, I plan on getting a VIP ticket where you sit under a tent out of the hot, blazing sun, enjoy a buffet breakfast, and a sip of beer, while enjoying the races with your family.
