Night School

Top American Quarter Horse jockey Cody Jensen will be one of three featured panelists on the Night School session tonight focusing on "The Jockey." Cody Jensen will be joined by Mike Smith and Chantal Sutherland starting at 7:30 Central Daylight Saving Time on Horse Player Now at http://www.horseplayernow.com/cat/school.htm.

“These are the bravest people in the sport of racing, no doubt about that,” said Night School host Joe Kristufek “We’ll talk with some of the top riders in the business.”

Streamed live the first Tuesday of every month, Night School is sponsored by AQHA, NTRA, Daily Racing Form, Churchill Downs and Keeneland. The service is free and no registration is required.

It’s an interesting topic with the jockeys, because it’s something most of us can’t relate to,” said host Jeremy Plonk. “We can watch a basketball game and say we used to play high school basketball or at least playground basketball and that sort of thing. With jockeys, most of us were never in that mold. We can armchair quarterback and try to criticize the riders, but it’s a profession many of us can’t really speak on. I think it’ll be a real interesting session.”
