"He was sore this morning and we're just trying to give him a day and see how he is tomorrow and go from there," Silver said. "I don't think it's anything serious, just sore. I don't want to rush him back. I want to make sure he's good and if we have to miss a few days, we'll do it." After Monday, Laurel is closed until July 9. McCarthy, 22, is scheduled to ride in five of nine races Wednesday at Delaware Park including Conscription in the $50,000 Christiana Stakes for 3-year-old fillies. McCarthy is also the new regular rider for 10-year-old Maryland-bred multi-millionaire stakes-winning gelding Ben's Cat, who is being pointed to the $200,000 Parx Dash (G3) July 9.
