Competition for the gambling dollar has challenged the horse racing industry in recent years and Northfield Park's response has been nothing short of incredible. Over $13,000,000 in renovations have been made to the facility to better serve the needs of today's horse racing fan since 1996. In spring of 2008, the new Trackside Loung and Sportsbar opened, with an adjacent outdoor patio. No matter what the future holds - video lottery terminals, the expansion of convenience wagering like our own BetHarness.com
, or a combination, Northfield Park is committed to providing the best possible experience for its patrons.
Since our intiial renovation, we have furnished the clubhouse and upper grandstand with more lighted work stations (or carrels) offering a view of the racetrack. Fans can now enjoy the thrill of live racing AND all the action of full-card simulcasting. These carrels are in addition to the 350 carrels already available to patrons on the first and second floors of the grandstand, each with private televisions.
In spring of 2010, we replaced all of our first floor grandstand television carrels with brand new ones featuring individual flat screen televisions as well as a video wall of 17 giant falt screens in each section (at left).
