Trevor McCarthy will be sidelined for an undetermined period of time after dislocating his left shoulder and breaking his right pinkie in a spill at Monmouth Park last Sunday. Antonio Gallardo, who was involved in the same spill, was not seriously hurt and plans to ride this weekend.

Pounds to Pennies, with Gallardo aboard, clipped heels and fell early in the 1 1/16-mile turf race. McCarthy was thrown awkwardly to the ground while his mount, Skip the Talk, avoided the fallen horse. The race was ruled a no-contest after an outrider waved horses to the outside part of the course for the stretch run and riders eased their mounts while McCarthy and Gallardo remained on the ground.

Doctors at the Monmouth Medical Center had to pop McCarthy’s shoulder back into place. He is wearing a sling and is scheduled to have his shoulder re-examined this weekend, according to his agent, Scott Silver.

Gallardo went to Monmouth Medical Center with pain in his neck and hand but emerged from the accident without any serious injuries.

“I feel good, strong,” Gallardo said Wednesday. “I was sore after the accident, but I am much better now. I plan to get on horses Thursday morning and ride this weekend.”
