Night School offers handicapping and racing-related lesson plans and topics in an interactive format online each Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. eastern, a timeslot and date chosen so that it can best supplement the racing week and schedules of fans across the country and worldwide. Night School is always free with optional registration.
What’s new in 2013 is a multi-media delivery of the lessons, which once again will utilize the Cover It Live live-blogging/chat technology for many sessions, but also will feature new audio streaming podcasts in addition to select, complete video presentations.
