The Florida Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering issued a license to Hialeah Park that will allow it to operate slot machines at the track. Hialeah is currently operating a 24-day Quarter Horse meet which opened Dec. 3 and runs through Jan. 24, 2011.\r\nHialeah was granted the rights to a slots license in legislation passed earlier this year. A lawsuit challenging that provision was filed by Calder and two other parimutuel facilities in Dade County alleging that Hialeah was not entitled to a slots license under a 2004 state constitutional amendment, which said that only tracks that held a parimutuel license in 2002 and 2003 in Broward and Dade counties could operate casinos in the state. Hialeah last held a Thoroughbred meeting in 2001 and did not run any parimutuel racing at the track since then until it reopened with a Quarter Horse meet last year.\r\nOn Dec. 16, Judge James Shelfer of the Second Judicial Circuit Court in Leon County issued an order stating that the 2010 law&rsquo;s provision granting Hialeah the right to a slots license did not conflict with the 2004 constitutional amendment. The decision paved the way for Wednesday&rsquo;s action by the division granting Hialeah its slots license.\r\nTrack officials said Hialeah could open its casino with Las Vegas style slot machines as early as November 2011.
