Northfield Park is looking for anyone who participated in the track\'s opening night card on Friday, Aug. 23, 1957, so they can help celebrate the track\'s 50th anniversary. Back on Aug. 23, 1957, the track offered nine races with the first race a class D trot won by Bunter’s Boy in 2:12, driven by Bill Popfinger.
The feature race, an invitational handicap pace for a purse of $3,000 was won by Jerry H in 2:04 and was driven by Jim Mace, the fastest mile of the evening.
Northfield Park plans a gala celebration on Aug. 25 and would like to recognize and honor those who raced during the Northfield Park, Grandview Raceway or the Painesville meets in 1957.
Anyone who raced, or who knows how to contact anyone who raced at any of the above meets in 1957, should contact Mary Randall, Northfield Park, at (330) 467-4101, ext. #, then 203, or Jerry Knappenberger, general manager of the Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association, at (800) 353-6442.
