Etc. . . .


Voters in Miami-Dade County will get a second chance to legalize slot machines at the county's three parimutuel facilities after the County Commission voted Tuesday to add a slots referendum to the Jan. 29 presidential primary ballot. Voters in the county narrowly defeated a similar amendment in 2005. . . . Dana Parham, a Standardbred owner and breeder and Thoroughbred racing fan, has donated $250,000 to the Permanently Disabled Jockeys' Fund, a charity administered by the National Thoroughbred Racing Associations, according to the NTRA. The donation by Parham, who owns Living Color Enterprises, a Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., company that sells custom aquariums and cabinetry, is the largest donation the fund has ever received. . . . The president of Three Chimneys Farm, Dan Rosenberg, will leave the Midway, Ky., business at the end of the year to open his own Thoroughbred management consultancy. Rosenberg, who has been at Three Chimneys since 1978, will remain a director there.
