After proudly serving in the Marines, Miguel (who was from Derry, New Hampshire) became an apprentice jockey. He died of injuries sustained in a fall from his horse during a Friday race at the Great Barrington, MA Fairgrounds.

Miguel suffered head injuries in his fall when his mount trampled him and was taken to Berkshire Medical Center, where he died Saturday night. His fall occurred just one day after the return of horse racing to the newly refurbished fairgrounds.
