McCarthy to Move His Tack to California


Trevor McCarthyCoady

Jockey Trevor McCarthy is moving his tack to California later this month. A leading rider in Maryland, McCarthy began riding in New York this winter, enjoying a successful Aqueduct winter meet. As of Sunday, he was fourth in the Belmont spring standings.

McCarthy will be represented by Derek Lawson, former agent to Flavien Prat.

“I needed a rider and was not going to take one away from another agent here,” said Lawson. “I recruited him. I started looking at riders who might fit out here, called him up, he made calls to trainers to learn about me and here we are. Trevor had a great winter at Aqueduct but he wanted to try something completely different, that being California, and he wanted to work with me. He will start riding here Memorial Day weekend.”
