Handicapper Kristufek Trackside OTB Tour Schedule Updated

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (Dec. 6, 2007) – Daily Herald handicapper and Arlington Park odds maker Joe Kristufek will be on hand “talking horses” at Trackside OTB locations on selected days during the month of December. The schedule has been updated to reflect changes in the dates of his appearances at the soon-to-open Trackside location in Hodgkins.

Kristufek, the leading public handicapper in money won seven of the last eight Arlington Park meets, will be available to answer questions and help fine tune your handicapping skills in a casual environment.

“I enjoy sharing handicapping theories and ideas with fans of all levels, particularly in a casual, interactive setting,” Kristufek said. “I'm looking forward to hanging out and enjoying Trackside OTB with people who love horseracing.”

The December tour of Trackside OTBs begins with the Grand Opening of the newest Trackside OTB location inside the all-new Salerno Pincente Ristorante, 9301 W. 63rd Street in Hodgkins on Thursday, Dec. 13 from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.
