Jockey Trevor McCarthy, in his first mount since being involved in a three-horse spill one week earlier, made a triumphant return to the irons aboard Charlie Biggs' Dancingwithpaynter in Friday's second race at Laurel Park . Trained by Cal Lynch, Dancingwithpaynter ($2.40) dueled with Congrats Graduate through the stretch before edging clear past the eighth pole and surviving a claim of foul by runner-up jockey Richard Chiappe to win by 4¼ lengths as a 1-5 favorite in the $15,000 claimer for older females. The winning time was 1 minute, 42.69 seconds for 1 mile over a sloppy main track. McCarthy, leading rider at Laurel's 2018 calendar year-ending fall meet that preceded the current 2019 winter stand, added a second win Friday aboard Run to Win Stable and Jagger, Inc.'s Rockin Cowboy ($6.80) in Race 7. The 24-year-old McCarthy, Maryland 's leading rider in 2014 and 2016, avoided serious injury when his horse, Tuffy's Way, broke down and caused a chain-reaction collision in the sixth race Jan. 11. McCarthy and fellow riders Horacio Karamanos and Jomar Torres were each taken to the hospital for observation after the spill. Karamanos returned to ride the next day, while Torres remains out but is named in three races today at Laurel.
