There's no question Richard Migliore laid it all on the line when he rode racehorses.
Nicknamed “The Mig” after the Russian fighter jet for his tenacity on the track, Migliore was known for his fearless riding style and fearlessness off the track as well. Despite coming within millimeters of being paralyzed or killed, The Mig never quit and made almost miraculous recoveries, displaying a resilience born of his undying passion for the sport.
A well-liked and respected rider, Migliore gained more fans as a TV analyst for the New York Racing Association, a job he stepped away from over the weekend to spend more time with his family on their farm in upstate New York.
In this edition of Around the Track from Belmont Park, Migliore shares stories about his favorite horses, the devastating injuries and comebacks and his appreciation for the people on the backstretch and the racetrack life.
