The New York Racing Association, Inc.'s (NYRA) New Owners Luncheon, originally scheduled for December 21, has been rescheduled for Sunday, January 12 at Aqueduct Racetrack.
Trainers Jeremiah Englehart and Tom Morley will be among the industry speakers participating in the New Owners Luncheon, which is co-hosted by former champion jockey and NYRA television analyst Richard Migliore and NYRA Network personality Ernie Munick. The program was initiated in 2011 to provide a comprehensive introduction and overview of thoroughbred ownership to those interested in buying a racehorse.
The event will begin at 8 a.m. with a continental breakfast in Equestris Restaurant followed by presentations and a Q&A session with the trainers, thoroughbred owner Robert Falcone and representatives from the partnerships of Black Swan Stable and Drawing Away Stable, along with equine accountant Andre Moglia and New York State steward Stephen Lewandowski.
Included in the $55 registration fee is lunch, 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 formerly covered horse racing for the New York Daily News.
