About Northfield Park

Celebrating 50 years of live harness racing, Northfield is the only remaining commercial harness track in Northeast Ohio. Opened in 1957, originally constructed in 1934, the track, then known as Sportsman Park, was intended as a greyhound track. When this plan failed, ownership changed and the focus was switched to midget car racing. After 20 years as a successful car racing facility, interest began to wane and in 1956, Sportsman Park was demolished to make way for what would eventually become one of the nation's premier harness racing tracks, Northfield Park.
