Thistledown Racetrack organised horseracing meet for the first time in 1925. On September 27, 1993, Onion Roll peaked 43.26 mph in this racetrack to spot on the fastest speed by any horse in a single race. It was in 1999, when one of the North America s biggest owners, operators and managers of horseracing tracks - Magna Entertainment, acquired Thistledown Racetrack in November. To increase the Cleveland-area track s stable capacity to 34 barns and 1598 stalls, Thistledown Racetrack backstretch was comprehensively renovated in 2002.
