The Northfield Park race track first opened on August 23rd, 1957, founded by local businessman Walter Michael and had been originally intended as a greyhound racing site. After a short period of time that saw the failure of the enterprise, the park was redesigned as a midget car racecourse, thriving throughout the following two decades. It is now part of the Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park compound of entertainment facilities, located nearby Cleveland in the state of Ohio. It hosts Standardbred and Harness races during 220 days of the year!

Soon after the old site of was brought down and new installations would be built for the newly-renamed Northfield Racetrack. The first event featured a total of nine races, including the Invitational Handicap Pace main card with a $3,000 purse. Northfield Park was part of three Ohio-based harness racing sites, that included the Painesville and Grandview raceways, however, after the latter ones closed, it now stands as the single such venue in the entire state.

By 1972, Northfield Park was purchased by real state mogul Carl Milstein, who leased the property to various different operators. Years later, Milstein's death resulted in his son Brock taking over the management of the racetrack, resulting in a renovated interest in strengthening Northfield Park's racing offer and visitor experience. Northfield Park also hosts the Battle for Lake Erie race, a free-for-all-pacers competition with a $150,000 purse.
