The Stronach Group is excited to announce that champion jockey and racing analyst Richard “The Mig” Migliore has joined XBTV's Digital Media Team. XBTV.com is horse racing's premier digital network and provides horse players a competitive edge through on-demand content that includes morning works, expert insight and analysis, and exclusive interviews.
Migliore brings decades of horse racing experience to the XBTV team.
