I have been to better racetrack but this one is Ok. I guess I'll have to try it again in the near future & maybe I'll like it a little bit more.

Just an outstanding place. You can feel the ghosts of the past around this grand masterpiece. It is under renovation, but I have been coming here for many many years and it never gets old. The Clubhouse and the green wicker chairs are like visiting an old lost friend. The flamingos are magnificent as are the rest of the grounds... More

Grounds are beautiful and it's like stepping back in time. Quarter horses were running, and they only ran a very short distance, so not much to the racing. Restaurant was occupied by a private party.

Parking is free. Easy to access. Went after running from Calder. Gulfstream is much worth the drive. But this is a nice track had a good crowd.

Seeing this racetrack was on my bucket list. You could see that it had once been a magnificent place to watch thoroughbreds. Except for the hight tech tote board on the infield, it seemed that the premises had not changed since the 50's, 60's. I tried to imagine how grand it must have been back then. At least, unlike Hollywood... More

I've been to Saratoga and I've been to Santa Anita numerous times,there is nothing like Hialeah.The family that purchased the track and the grounds surrounding it has restored it back to its original beauty complete with their beautiful pink flamingos.It is a shame that the only racing there is quarter horse for a short meet.They built a new beautiful casino...

Hialeah has become a Racino. The new casino is very nice with all the bells and whistles. One drawback is it is a long walk from your car to the casino, unless you are a VIP player.

Anyone of an equestrian background recognizes the name HIALEAH because it is considered one of two majestic race tracks in the USA (Santa Anita being the other). With its marble hallways, flying flamingos, fountains and statues, there is nothing quite like it. Add to that a brand spanking new state-of-the-art casino and Hialeah is remade: VOILA! Located in the heart... More
