Former jockey Richard Migliore will join the America's Day at the Races telecasts starting with Friday's broadcast and continuing throughout the Belmont spring/summer meet.
Beginning on Friday, May 1, Migliore, who rode 4,450 career winners in his career and won the Eclipse Award as the nation's top apprentice rider in 1981, will rejoin the FOX Sports/NYRA broadcast team marking his return to covering the NYRA circuit following a brief retirement in 2018.
“I'm excited and looking forward to joining such a talented group of racing analysts and handicappers,” said Migliore. “I've always enjoyed working in New York and greatly appreciate this opportunity to join these top quality shows on FOX Sports.”
Migliore joins a broadcast team that includes hosts Greg Wolf and Laffit Pincay III, handicapper and racing analyst Andy Serling, paddock analyst Maggie Wolfendale, Hall of Fame rider and expert analyst Gary Stevens, handicapper Jonathon Kinchen, trainer turned analyst Tom Amoss, and handicapper and former Major League Baseball all-star Paul LoDuca. Larry Collmus, NYRA announcer and voice of the Triple Crown, will provide live race calls throughout the year.
Presented by America's Best Racing, Runhappy and Claiborne Farm, and produced by NYRA Television, America's Day at the Races airs nationally on FS2 with regional coverage in the tri-state area found on MSG+.
In 2019, FOX Sports is slated to televise 500 hours of NYRA racing, including coverage of nearly every race day at Belmont and Saratoga. The broadcast schedule will then expand to over 600 hours annually in 2020. This agreement builds upon the prior deal between NYRA and FOX Sports that resulted in more than 100 hours of NYRA coverage on FS2 in 2018.
