Trainers Bruce Levine and Jena Antonucci will be among the industry speakers participating in The New York Racing Association, Inc.’s (NYRA) next “New Owners Luncheon” at Belmont Park on Sunday, June 2.
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 a continental breakfast in the Turf & Field Room on the fourth floor of the clubhouse, followed by presentations and Q&A session with Levine and Antonucci, along with owner Marty Cunningham, the racing partnerships of Kenwood Racing Stable and Hibiscus Stable, bloodstock agent Joseph Brocklebank, and equine accountant Andre Moglia.
Also included in the $75 registration fee is lunch in the Turf & Field Room, 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.
