On the heels of a highly successful launch last week, Harness Night School, the racing industry’s national online fan education program dedicated to the Standardbred set, stops at Meadowlands Racetrack for Hambletonian Day. Jeremy Plonk and Tom Kelley will be joined on-site by Horse Player NOW’s Caton Bredar and Jerry Shottenkirk to provide on-site fan education at a tent located in the Kahuna Wedge. Also on Saturday, beginning at 11:45 a.m. ET, Kelley and Horse Player NOW’s Terry Turrell will host a full-card Hambletonian Day chat. Fans will be able to ask questions, and share opinions, in an interactive format. The chat can be found at horseplayernow.com, ustrotting.com and drf.com.

Harness Night School is FREE to all fans, and no advanced sign-up is required. The 90-minute classes will be held each Thursday at 7 p.m. Eastern time and continue through the Oct. 25 Breeders Crown Preview. A different handicapping subject will be featured weekly as well as a look at the weekend’s major harness races on the USTA’s Strategic Wagering schedule.

Title sponsor for Harness Night School is the United States Trotting Association, in conjunction with presenting seasonal sponsor Daily Racing Form. Harness Night School’s supporting sponsor is Meadowlands Racetrack. Founded by Horse Player NOW’s Joe Kristufek and Jeremy Plonk, the Night School brand has provided fan education courses throughout the racing industry over the past 16 months and has been viewed live or in archives by more than 400,000 racing enthusiasts from newbies to hardcore handicappers.
