Night School, the racing industry's national online fan education program, presents its final Newbie Tuesdays lesson of the 2012 season this Tuesday when horse racing author Jean Chodkowski joins the interactive session, whose theme this week will be "Having Fun at the Track." Newbie Tuesdays are offered the first Tuesday of each month and are geared toward the entry-level racing fan. This week's lesson will be the 35th of 40 offered on the Night School season, which runs through early November.

Chodkowski's recent release is titled, "The Anatomy Of Horse Racing Handicapping Or How To Have Fun At The Races," and gives newcomers a guide to their initial racetrack experiences. Her website provides more information. The 90-minute Newbie Tuesdays lesson begins at 8:30 p.m. ET and will be hosted by the Horse Player NOW trio of Joe Kristufek, Jeremy Plonk and Caton Bredar.

This week's Night School will be followed by another "After Night School Special," featuring live racing from Mountaineer Park, beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET. The segment will cover the evening's final race in real time with free, live-streaming video and complimentary Daily Racing Form past performances. The Night School lessons this week also continue Thursday with a Keeneland 2012 Fall Meet Preview, hosted by Jeremy Plonk, beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET. The Keeneland preview will include a look at stats and trends for the upcoming season in Lexington as well as specific handicapping pointers on Friday’s opening day card.

Also note that the Night School Tour traveling troupe of fan educators will be conducting live seminars at both Keeneland and Laurel Park this weekend. Meet Joe Kristufek, Katie Mikolay, Tim Brannan, Brian Spencer and Brandi Goode at Keeneland this Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout FallStars Weekend. They will be working the Racing 101 Tent for America's Best Racing. Meanwhile, the Night School Tour duo of Jeremy Plonk and Brian Nadeau provide on-site fan education at Laurel Park for Saturday's Maryland Million program.

Presenting title sponsors for Night School are the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, American Quarter Horse Association, Keeneland, Churchill Downs, Inc. and Daily Racing Form.
