Paul Lo Duca, who recently announced that he was leaving the Television Games Network after nine years as a racing analyst and studio host, will sign with the New York Racing Association to serve in a similar capacity on "Saratoga Live," NYRA's cable broadcast in support of its Advance Deposit Wagering platform, NYRABets.

Lo Duca will debut when the storied Saratoga race meet opens on Friday, July 21.

Lo Duca will fill a role recently vacated by popular retired New York jockey and racing analyst, Richard Migliore, who announced he was leaving the NYRA several weeks ago.

The four-time Major League Baseball All-Star will replace another accomplished athlete.

Migliore, rode over 4,450 winners during his career and won an Eclipse Award at 17 as the nation's leading apprentice in 1981.

We'll have more on Lo Duca, this weekend's Stars & Stripes Racing Festival, and NYRA's new Pick 5 wager, in this space in our usual slot on Tuesday..
