Racing first took place in the Northampton Park area of Cuyahoga Falls in the state of Ohio in 1922 on a track built by Steve Steinmetz. Racing continued for the next 16 years before the track was renamed Ascot Park in 1938.
Meetings were held throughout the Spring and early Summer months of March to June.
The Ascot Gold Cup, over 2 miles, was run for the first time at the track in 1941. It was won by Loyal Son in 1964, and the horse was later buried in the centre of the racecourse.
In the early 1960's the track was purchased by Eddie de Bartolo. The final racing took place at the track in 1966 and, at that point, principal races were transferred to Thistledown.
