Jockey Trevor McCarthy will make his return to New York for the Aqueduct meet next Thursday, reports the Daily Racing Form, having spent the spring and summer in Southern California. Joe Migliore, a bloodstock agent and the son of former jockey Richard Migliore, will represent McCarthy in his return.
“Tremendously excited about how his return has been received, lots of people looking for us in the mornings, and we’ve been very active in the mornings,” Migliore told DRF. “Excited to build upon the success he had last year before going to California and think that we’ll be able to repeat if not expand that success this winter and beyond.”
McCarthy, who left New York partly because of a wagering rule that requires married jockeys to be coupled in the wagering, went 9-for-156 in Southern California, and missed the last 11 weeks due to an ankle surgery. McCarthy now plans to ride year-round in New York, and he and his wife, jockey Katie Davis, are expecting their first child in December.
