    Default Hialeah Status?

    Would anyone have heard any recent news about Hialeah? We're starting a few QH's in Oklahoma and would like to makes plans for Winter. The press announcements doesn't make anything sound definite.

    This is for you, LKF. I quoted the pertinent info and pasted the link below it. I really don't think they actually intend to ever hold QH racing, but you never know.

    "Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and the Seminole Tribe of Florida are nearing their Aug. 31 deadline to approve a Gaming Compact, which would trigger a new law that would provide economic benefits for the state’s Thoroughbred industry and for that tribe’s casinos.

    * It would allow now-closed Hialeah Park to resume Thoroughbred racing on a limited basis, utilizing a Quarter Horse permit it was issued last March by the Florida Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering. Within two years of re-opening, Hialeah would be eligible for a casino."
