Arlington Park/ Night School Chat Debuts June 21

| Churchill Downs Communications | 06/21/2010 #

In partnership with Arlington Park, Horse Player NOW announces a series of summer "Night School' chats debuting Monday, June 21 at 7 p.m. Central time.  The chats can be accessed from the Arlington Park website as well as through the website.

Hosted by Horse Player NOW analysts Joe Kristufek and Jeremy Plonk, the Night School chat sessions are designed to help fans become more successful horseplayers. The first "Night School" chat focuses "Approaching a Day at the Races".  A brief explanation of the first session follows:

"For many of us, playing the races is a form of entertainment," said Horse Player NOW's Joe Kristufek, who serves as Arlington Park's morning line maker and whose comments appear in the track's program.  "We go to the track with friends and/or family, pick up a program, pick out a horse or two, and make our wagers. Others look at a day of racing through entirely different eyes. They play to compete, to piece together mental puzzles and seek out opportunities to make a financial score. Regardless of how serious you take your horse play, the name of the game is having fun. On any given day, the guy or gal that handicaps the races for 30 seconds can outperform the serious handicapper, but in the long run, having a good approach breeds consistency."

If you have an interest in truly attacking a day at the races, join Joe and Jeremy Monday at 8 p.m. for Night School!
