History of Rosecroft Raceway

1947 – In September of the year, a meeting was held about bringing a harness racetrack to Maryland, and Rosecroft was chosen as the site.

1949 – Racetrack was opened on May 26, 1949, and a day after, it held its first night of racing on May 27, 1949, and became Prince George’s County’s political and social center.

1980 – William E. Miller II assumed ownership of the track when Earle Brown changed its position in the track.

1987 – Mark Vogel purchased the track, a Maryland real estate agent. However, it failed to handle the racetrack properly and could not entice more players, hence the decreased attendance. It is due to focusing more on his real estate business and neglecting its duty for the track. He even extracted money from the betting pools and utilized it for his real estate business.

2000 – Cloverleaf purchased the track and attempted to sell it multiple times, unfortunately to no avail.

2002 – In mid-2002, several interested buyers emerged, yet Cloverleaf was involved in lawsuits. Hence, it brought disappointment to the potential buyers and canceled their plans.

2009 – Cloverleaf Enterprises filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in June 2009. Mark Vogel tried to purchase the track again, but a bankruptcy court judge denied the approval.

2010 – In early June 2010, Cloverleaf filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and shut down on July 1, 2010.

2011 – The track was sold to Penn National Gaming.
