Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

OCEAN­PORT, N.J. — Jockey Trevor McCarthy was taken to a hos­pi­tal for neu­ro­log­i­cal test­ing af­ter he was tossed from his mount dur­ing the fea­ture race at Mon­mouth Park on Sun­day. The 21-year-old jockey was aboard Ca­lypso Run, a three­year-old filly who was mov­ing up along the rail in the $70,000 Miss Wood­ford Stakes when she clipped heels at the top of the stretch. Track med­i­cal di­rec­tor An­gelo Chin­nici said McCarthy had a se­vere headache, so he was due to have a CAT scan and other neu­ro­log­i­cal tests. McCarthy has rid­den 25 win­ners from 165 mounts dur­ing Mon­mouth’s cur­rent meet, plac­ing him fourth in the track’s over­all stand­ings.
