McCarthy Out Up To 10 Weeks With Pelvis, Collarbone Fractures; Samuel Suspended Seven Days For Careless Riding

Trevor McCarthy

Jockey Trevor McCarthy could miss as much as 10 weeks with fractures to both his pelvis and collarbone after an incident on Friday at Aqueduct Racetrack, reports the Daily Racing Form. McCarthy was riding Ever Summer in Friday's sixth race when the filly clipped heels with a rival. He was transported off the track on a backboard and transported to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center for evaluation.

Neither of McCarthy's fractures will require surgical repair.

According to the Equibase chart, a stewards' inquiry was held into the sixth race, resulting in the disqualification of runner-up Rhombique from second to ninth for interference with several rivals. Rhombique, ridden by Jalon Samuel, angled out near the quarter pole and bumped a rival while moving from the two-path to the four-path.

That move forced Ever Summer and McCarthy to the seven-path, where they clipped heels with eventual seventh-place finisher Unruly July. Ever Summer fell to the ground, but returned to her feet after clipping heels and walked off the track under her own power.

New York stewards have issued a seven-day careless riding suspension to Samuel for his role in the incident; Samuel told DRF he does not plan to appeal.
