Leading rider McCarthy's broken wrist will not require surgery


The broken right wrist jockey Trevor McCarthy incurred after being thrown from his mount following the second race Saturday at Laurel Park will not require surgery, and he could be back riding in about eight weeks, according to his agent, Scott Silver.

“It was a clean break and didn’t need any surgery,” Silver said. “The break was about an inch above the knuckle you have on your wrist towards the elbow.”

McCarthy’s wrist was placed in a cast. He will see a specialist in eight or nine days and have it X-rayed again, Silver said.

McCarthy has been the dominant rider in Maryland this year. With three days left in the Laurel meet, McCarthy leads the standings by more than 20 wins. He also led the standings at the Pimlico meet that ended in June and at last winter’s Laurel meet, which ran through March.

The winner of Saturday’s second race, Hugger of Trees, fell about a sixteenth of a mile past the finish while galloping out. McCarthy, aboard the runner-up Vente Latte, was unseated as his mount avoided the fallen horse.

Christian Santiago Reyes, the rider of Hugger of Trees, was unhurt in the incident. Hugger of Trees walked into the equine ambulance and was vanned from the track. Vente Latte was caught by an outrider and returned to the paddock.

Why? is Delaware in trouble? I would be heartbroken if that track closed. It is one of those great little tracks that there used to be many of. Now they are few and far between, Time was you go back year to year and see the same people just like Finger Lakes. Nice tracks.
