Richard Migliore knows his away around the Belmont Park oval, having won 1,352 races from 9,922 mounts at the venue during his 30-plus year career. During the week of the Belmont Stakes, the retired jockey will share his Belmont expertise by circumnavigating the 1 ½-mile main track on horseback with Mario Gutierrez, who will attempt to sweep the Triple Crown aboard I’ll Have Another in the June 9 Belmont Stakes.

 

During the tour, which likely will be conducted June 6 or 7, Migliore will ride five-time Grade 1 winner Lava Man, who now serves as I’ll Have Another’s pony. Gutierrez will be aboard a horse from trainer Doug O’Neill’s barn that has yet to be determined. In 2007, Migiliore guided Student Council to an upset victory over Lava Man in the Grade 1 Pacific Classic at Del Mar.

 

In addition to serving as a television analyst for NYRA, Migliore works as a racing office associate and oversees the association’s apprentice jockey program.
