The Mig's "Fan of the Day" Contest at Saratoga
The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has started a "Fan of the Day" promotion in which former jockey and current NYRA television analyst Richard Migliore will select two lucky fans for special behind-the-scenes access. Every weekday -- Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday -- for the remainder of the meet, Migliore will randomly select two winners from the crowd. He will then accompany them into the paddock before a race, and then to the winner's circle to watch the race. Additionally, after the race they will take part in the winner's circle photograph ceremony and receive copies of the photo to memorialize their "Fan of the Day" experience. Migliore, who began riding in 1980 and a year later won the Eclipse Award as the nation's top apprentice, retired in 2010 after winning more than 4400 races, including 362 stakes. Twice the leading rider in New York, "The Mig" currently serves as a NYRA racing office associate in addition to his role as a broadcast analyst.
