Hialeah, FL, December 24, 2011 – With all eight Christmas Eve races broadcast for wagering on TVG, Hialeah Park recorded an all-sources mutuel handle of $381,751 on Saturday December 24, a new all-time high for Quarter Horse racing at this historic South Florida racing emporium.

Quarter Horse racing in Florida has been guided to success by the State’s only lawfully recognized Quarter Horsemen’s association, the Florida Quarter Horse Racing Association (“FQHRA”).

The FQHRA is dedicated to carrying out the high standards of the American Quarter Horse Association—an organization that has been in existence for hundreds of years and holds the humane treatment of horses among its highest principles. 

FQHRA was formed to represent the people who have an interest in racing the American Quarter Horse in Florida in matters pertaining to business, property, and activities of the association.  One of the primary goals of the FQHRA is to ensure that the welfare of the American Quarter Horse is paramount and that every American Quarter Horse at all times be treated humanely and with dignity, respect and compassion.  The FQHRA is committed to promoting American Quarter Horse racing in Florida along with providing beneficial services to its members and to serve as a positive communication link between the members of the FQHRA and the American Quarter Horse Association.
