Nearly two decades before my father, John J. Brunetti Sr., purchased Historic Hialeah Park in 1977, he had fallen in love with it. The breathtaking Mediterranean architecture, colorful flamingos occupying the race track's infield lake and cultural significance left him awestruck. At the time he was a University of Miami student already possessing the tenacity and drive many would come to know him for over the course of his life. He understood what Hialeah Park was and had a vision for where it was going. The rest is history.
With the passing of my father on March 2, 2018, I have assumed the proud responsibility of continuing his legacy. As President, I want to welcome you to Hialeah Park Racing and Casino.
Since its 2013 opening, our patrons have enjoyed our state of the art casino offering Concerts, World Class Boxing, Car and Boat Shows, Bingo Nights, Live DJ’s and delicious food. Our casino features the most popular and entertaining Slot Machines, Electronic Roulette, and Black Jack. Also, live quarter horse racing action is conducted seasonally.
