The Florida Quarter Horse Racing Association has initiated legal proceedings against the state's Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

The lawsuit claims that the DBPR improperly issued licenses to Hialeah Park. The dispute stems from a decision made by track officials to enter into an agreement with the South Florida Quarter Horse Association, which would then replace the FQHRA as the group that represents horsemen at the track.
