Maryland Jockey McCarthy Breaks Tibia

Promising apprentice rider Trevor McCarthy will miss 8-10 weeks with a broken left tibia, according to his agent Scott Silver. McCarthy was injured Thursday morning at Laurel Park during training when a horse he was working wheeled and dropped the jockey. The 18-year-old will have surgery Monday, April 15.

 

“It really wasn’t a bad fall,” Silver said. “It was the way he landed.”

 

McCarthy, who finished second in the recently completed Laurel Park winter meet, won six races during the opening week of the Pimlico Race Course spring stand, including a riding triple last Thursday. He began the day ranked 12th in North America with 69 victories.

 

“The timing isn’t great because we had our sights on the Eclipse Award,” added Silver. “But the doctors are telling us it should be a quick healing process. Hopefully he’ll be back on horses in six weeks.”

 

McCarthy won a career-best four races on January 1 and February 27 at Laurel and has 14 multiple-win afternoons in Maryland this year. He rode his first stakes winner on February 16, guiding Concealed Identity to victory in the John B. Campbell Stakes.
