Here's a Dade history doc I made about Hialeah horse racing at the Hialeah Park Race Track with an original soundtrack.
Frank Sinatra and a lot of other famous people used to go to the Hialeah Park Race Track. It opened in 1921 and is one of the oldest recreational facilities in South Florida.
The park was know for the pink flamingos that lived there.
The images in the video are from around 1939 and were downloaded from the American Library of Congress.
