Hialeah Park, the famous horse racing track near Miami, Florida, will apply for a gaming license on July 1, Dave Joseph of Thoroughbred Times reports.
Hialeah Park owner John Brunetti told Joseph that he hopes to have a casino open by spring 2011. The track is permitted to offer poker, dominoes and slot machines if it receives approval from the Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering.
Hialeah Park, famous for its flamingos, had fallen into disrepair before Brunetti invested millions of dollars in repairs and began quarter horse racing last year. The track plans another quarter horse meet starting Nov. 27.
