Jockey Trevor McCarthy was transported to Saint Barnabas/Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch after his mount Calypso Run clipped heels at the top of the stretch, unseating the 21-year-old journeyman in Monmouth’s 10th race Sunday afternoon.

“He went for further neurological testing,” said Dr. Angelo Chinnici, Medical Director for the racetrack, “which will include a CAT scan of the brain and other tests.  He was complaining of a severe headache, so I sent him for extra testing.”

McCarthy, a native of Wilmington, Del., was moving up along the rail in Monmouth’s $70,000 Miss Woodford Stakes when he was unseated.

Prior to Sunday’s incident, McCarthy had ridden 25 winners from 165 mounts, good for fourth in the overall Monmouth standings.

Further updates will follow when available.
