Former Jockey Richard Migliore Joins Free Beer + Hot Wings Show Live from Saratoga
During the Free Beer & Hot Wings Show live broadcast from the Saratoga Race Course, Former Jockey Richard Migliore joined the show. Known better as 'The Mig', which also happens to be a Russian fighter jet. He's had over 4,450 races in his career before he retired.
The Mig started off with a racing joke, when asked by the cast of the show who will win the Travers race; he replied, "yes, the jockey in the white pants."
Free Beer asked him if there came a time when the 'short jokes' stopped - but The Mig is 5'4 and considered tall among jockeys.
Free Beer also got some insight about how horses respond to psychology in training. Apparently, Seabiscuit isn't as accurate as reality. No surprise there.
