Remington Park and Horseplayer Now will continue their long partnership for racing education throughout the 2016 Thoroughbred Season. The initial online get together will take place on the season’s Opening Night, Friday, Aug. 12.
The Friday Night School Live at Remington Park will be conducted on most Fridays of the season with special editions for Oklahoma Derby Day (Sept. 25) and Springboard Mile Day (Dec. 11).
“Friday nights with Remington Park racing have become a fixture in the online wagering culture and the return of Friday Night School Live once again will provide the perfect weekend kick off,” noted Jeremy Plonk, the founder of Horseplayer Now. “The interaction with fellow horseplayers in the live chat and podcast provide camaraderie and player development in one swoop. We’re pumped up to partner once again with Remington Park, the trailblazing track that joined us in fan education initiatives in 2010.”
Horseplayer Now is the nation’s leading interactive horse racing educational team. The Remington Park Friday Night School Live is an extension of the weekly Night School program that is featured online on Tuesdays.
Plonk and Jerry Shottenkirk will share duties on the weekly Friday Night School Live program, beginning approximately 20 minutes before the first race of the evening at 7pm (central). Those taking part in the program will hear the thoughts and strategies of the hosts, while able to submit commentary and questions in the online forum. The Remington Park racing action is available for viewing via online streaming.
“The Friday Night program has become a weekly online appointment for many horseplayers participating with Remington Park racing,” said Dale Day, Remington Park announcer. “The Horseplayer Now team does a great job in helping teach newer fans about the sport, and wagering, without overloading them with mind-blowing minutiae that might cause confusion. Regular attendees continue to build on their knowledge and there is plenty of fun conversation involved throughout the night.”
The program aids everyone from the novice fan to the heavily experienced. Friday Night School Live also offers participating guests free past performances, courtesy of Brisnet. A major partner with both Horse Player NOW and Remington Park, Brisnet has been heavily involved with extending the reach of horse racing to newer fans for years.
