Hialeah Sets Handle Record

South Florida track sets wagering record.

Press Release

Hialeah Park

Hialeah Park had record handle on Monday.

The brown filly Miss Southern DD was the star of the afternoon on Monday February 2 at Hialeah Park with her strong score in the Tallahassee Stakes, but it was the all-sources wagering on the ten-race card that stole the headlines on the final day of a highly successful four-day Super Bowl weekend.

When the calculators were finished and the final numbers etched in the books, this iconic racing palace had totaled a record $526,170.17 in all-sources handle, shattering the previous high for a South Florida Quarter Horse racing program of $483,702 set here on Sunday February 16, 2014.

Hialeah Park’s Director of Simulcasting and Track Announcer Peter Aiello praised what he called “a team effort” in reaching the new mark, “I want to thank Dustin Dix, Dave Johnson, Frank Hopf, and Jason Beem for working with us today and helping all of us to maximize and exploit our post times and exposure.”

“We could not have done it without the support and help of TVG, their great talent, and their producers,” Aiello added, “When everyone can work together in this business for a common goal, good things can – and will – happen!”
