Harness Racing

Please join us for Harness Racing action with Pari-Mutuel wagering (betting) on 9 or more races. Pick your favorite horse by name, driver colors or the horse that catches your eye. Fans come from near and far to enjoy some of Ohio’s best 2- and 3-year-olds competing. Northfield Park regular announcer Ayers Ratcliff paints a picture of the action packed one-mile races, including exciting stretch drives for the WIN. We look forward to seeing you, your family, and friends for an exciting evening of racing action, and family fun at the FAIR! So long as the track is safe for racing, this is a rain or shine event!

 

Handicapping 101 with Bob Roberts

And if you're attending the Cuyahoga County Harness Races on Tuesday, August 10th, be sure to visit with MGM Northfield Park's Bob Roberts from 2:00PM-4:00PM at the Grandstand for Handicapping 101, in which Bob will offer insights on how to read a race program, while providing pari-mutuel wagering tips.

Bob Roberts is a native Clevelander who grew up in Willowick. He knew he wanted to be a sportswriter when his father took him to an Indians game and he asked who those guys were typing on a countertop behind home plate in the upper deck of old Municipal Stadium.

Betologist Bob Roberts

"They're sportswriters," said his dad. "That's their job." 

Roberts began his career at the Mentor Morning Monitor before heading over to The Willoughby/Lake County News-Herald where he was named sports editor in 1970 at the age of 22. Roberts was hired by The Cleveland Press in 1973 and returned to The News-Herald when the Press folded in 1982. The Cleveland Plain Dealer hired Bob in 1985 and he remained there for over 20 years before accepting a buyout in 2006. 

Roberts has won numerous awards. They include best harness story in North America, best Preakness story, a Golden Quill for feature writing in western Pennsylvania, and more than 10 state-wide writing awards in Ohio.
