Trainers Gary Contessa and Linda Rice will be among the industry speakers participating in The New York Racing Association, Inc.'s (NYRA) next "New Owners Luncheon" at Saratoga Race Course on Sunday, August 18.

 

Co-hosted by former champion jockey and NYRA television analyst Richard Migliore and former Daily News handicapper Ernie Munick, the program was initiated in 2011 and provides a comprehensive introduction and overview of thoroughbred ownership to those interested in buying a racehorse.

 

The event will begin at 8 a.m. with breakfast on the porch, followed by presentations and Q&A session with Contessa and Rice, along with owner Roddy Valente, the racing partnerships of Sackatoga Stable and West Point Thoroughbreds, equine accountant Andre Moglia, and state steward Stephen Lewandowski.

 

Also included in the $100 registration fee is lunch in the luxury suites, a backstretch tour, a visit to the paddock to see the horses being saddled before a race, a winner's circle presentation, an official program, and a gift bag.

 

Throughout the day, guests also will have the opportunity to meet many of NYRA's leading jockeys, trainers and owners.

 

Migliore, who won the Eclipse Award as the nation's top apprentice in 1981, retired in 2010 after winning 4,450 races, including 362 stakes. Munick also serves as an analyst on NYRA TV.
