Every day, Northfield Park brings fans the best in all-breed horse racing action from tracks across North America, as well as Australia! Gates open 1/2 hour before first simulcast post. Check the simulcast schedule below for first simulcast post times. Northfield remains open for simulcast racing until approximately 11PM! Remember... parking and admission are free everyday of the week at Northfield Park. Private betting carrels are FREE all the time. Northfield's RaceBook simulcast area features an expanded bar area, flat screen televisions, private seating areas and much more.

Trackside Lounge

Trackside at Northfield Park is a state-of-the-art Sports Bar, featuring three-dozen flat-screen television monitors, private seating areas, full bar service and snack menu. Whether you choose to sit at the bar, in theater-style seating in front of one of our 100” sports monitors or wager in a private viewing area, with multiple screens and leather sofas, Trackside has something for every patron.

The space is open whenever the track is open, with the bar opening at 6PM on live race nights as well as for special events. Self-serve wagering machines are always on, with live tellers available during live racing, as well. In addition to Northfield’s full simulcast agenda, Trackside broadcasts major sporting events including Indians, Cavs, Ohio State and Browns games. We also offer March madness, the World Series, Super Bowl, Nascar and more.

Adjacent to the sports bar is the Trackside Patio, an outdoor smoking-accommodation featuring patio-table seating at umbrella equipped tables, protecting patrons from the elements while putting them just feet away from the live racing action.

Cedar Downs


Welcome to Cedar Downs, Ohio's only Off-Track-Betting facility. As the managers of Cedar Downs, all of us in the Northfield Park family thank you for your patronage.

Many of you are familiar with Northfield Park, the harness track located between Cleveland and Akron. Northfield Park owns Cedar Downs and operates all pari-mutuel aspects of the facility.

Over the past 25 years, under the guidance of the Milstein family, Northfield Park has built a reputation for strong customer service. We are continuing that tradition at Cedar Downs.

Our private TV carrels are available for an enhanced wagering experience and new carpet and seating have been installed for your comfort.

If you haven't already done so, please take a minute to fill out the Cedar Downs Preferred Patron mailing list application on your next visit so we can send you discounts and information about upcoming promotions and  events. The Cedar Downs Players Club  features rewards of up to 3% on your wagers. To join, stop by the mutuel windows and fill out an application and one of our friendly clerks will help you out.

Please don't hesitate to ask any of our mutuel clerks or OTB managers questions about any racing or wagering related matter. They are here to help you make your visit to Cedar Downs as enjoyable and profitable as possible.

All of us at Northfield Park are pleased that Cedar Downs is based inside a quality facility like the Thirsty Pony Restaurant/Sportsbook complex. The Sortino family and all of their employees have helped make our transition as smooth as possible. I'm sure we can speak for them when we say that they are also here to help you in any way that will make your visit more pleasant.
