Gambling: If you fancy a flutter, please remember gambling is illegal in the UAE although Dubai hosts the richest horse race in the world. Betting is slightly different to most countries in the world as racegoers are not allowed to have a bet at the track as it is against the laws of the UAE. This means that race fans travelling to the Meydan track should place their bets by downloading an APP, using an online bookmaker, or at a bookmakers shop beforehand.

Hospitality guests should dress smartly. Men should wear lounge suits or their national dress. Women are expected to wear elegant race day attire or national dress and they are encouraged to wear hats. Jeans, T-shirts, trainers or sneakers, flip flops, combat trousers and shorts are strictly prohibited in all the hospitality areas.
