“Shame covers Hialeah like a blanket on a Horse”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

This was once a Hialeah Miami Hotspot pulling in trainloads of tourists from as far away as Palm Beach . Today , its a dump with Homeless people ,sleeping on or near the grounds. There are many rumors of casinos, and racing coming soon but I think its all talk

“Open again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

After a long time with no activities, the Hialeah Racetrack is open again. I have not visited since it re-opened, but I remember a luxury clubhouse, and taking my daughter to Sunday brunch in the 70's to see the horses training. It is a landmark in Hialeah, but I prefer Gulfstream.

“My Favorite Horse Race Track”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2008

I grew up near Hialeah Race Track & loved watching the horses run on my days off. Hialeah is a Historic Landmark in South Florida, and first opened in 1921. It is beautiful with its old banyan trees and bougainvillea and holds so many memories of the great horses and jockeys that once raced there. Secretariat stayed at Hialeah's stables prior to winning the Triple Crown in 1973. (On March 9, 1973 Secretariat left to go back up north). I pray Halsey Minor is able to purchase Hialeah from John Brunetti & save this historical landmark before it is too late.

“Beautiful groounds and racetrack”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2005

Hialeah is the most beautiful racetrack in the entire world. The palms, flowers, landscaping and fountains are only seen in exotic parks. It is a shame that races are not held there anymore.
