Jim Goetz looks over his race program at Hialeah Park. Historic Hialeah Park is running quarter horses (minor leagues compared to thoroughbreds) three days a week to qualify for slots later this year. The legislative moves that brought slots here despite no referendum (referred to as the Hialeah exemption) opened the way for barrel racing, a slot vote in PB County and pandemonium in Tallahassee.
