Hialeah Park received more than 1,200 stall applications for its 2015-16 American Quarter Horse meet.

Hialeah Park has received more than 1,200 stall applications for the track’s 40-day American Quarter Horse meet, which runs December 26-February 29.

Due to the large number of requests for stalls, horsemen are reminded that the “no yearling” rule will be enforced, as the stalls will be full with horses competing during the meet.

“We understand that the Florida sunshine is conducive to early and regular training, but the competing racehorses will have first call for the stalls,” said Florida Quarter Horse Racing Association president Dr. Steve Fisch. “We believe that this strong demand for stalls is an indicator of the quality of the racing program that has been built since 2009.”

Also, the ARCI medication rules that were adopted by the Florida legislature during its 2015 session will be enforced during the 2015-16 Hialeah Park meet.
