The Queen at the races in Bahrain in 1979

The Queen with Sheikh Ahmed bin Isa Al-Khalifa at the races in Bahrain in 1979. The Emir is strictly anti-betting and has his own way of discouraging punters: he changes the numbers on all the horses just before the start of the race. But when Her Majesty visited, no changes were made.
