Night School: Newbie Tuesday Focus-How to read past performances
Tuesday’s 90-minute 8:30 p.m. ET Night School session features the season’s fifth Newbie Tuesdays program, an entry level approach to fan education and interaction teaching the basics of the game. Hosted by Horse Player NOW’s Jeremy Plonk and Caton Bredar, this week’s focus will be “How to Read and Interpret Past Performances”.
Hosted by Horse Player NOW’s Joe Kristufek and featured within the program will be a comprehensive video outlining the various pieces of information found within the Daily Racing Form past performances. Plonk and Bredar will offer advice on how to apply the information, and answer questions from the Newbie Tuesday chat participants.
Newbie Tuesdays are offered the first Tuesday of each month inside the weekly Night School curriculum. The lesson plans feature segments on handicapping, placing a wager and becoming a better fan.
Night School is FREE and no registration is required.
Another “After Night School Special,” featuring live racing from Mountaineer Park, will follow Tuesday from 10:00-11:00 p.m. ET, covering the late daily double in real time with free, live-streaming video and complimentary Daily Racing Form past performances.
Thursday, July 5th at 8:30 p.m. ET, a special Night School Big Event “Summit of Speed Handicapping Camp” will be conducted. Horse Player NOW’s Jeremy Plonk will be joined by Calder track announcer Bobby Neuman and BRISNET.com’s Ed DeRosa for the one-hour seminar. Billed as “Thoroughbred Racing’s Fastest Day”, Saturday’s Summit of Speed card at Calder offers six stakes races with combined purses of $1.3 million.
Presenting title sponsors for Night School are the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, American Quarter Horse Association, Keeneland, Churchill Downs, Inc. and Daily Racing Form. Tuesday’s session will be the 22nd of 40 Night School lesson plans throughout the 2012 season, which continues through November.
