Katie Davis and Trevor McCarthy
were destined to be jockeys and a couple since their childhoods. Katie's dad,
Robbie Davis, and Trevor's father, Michael McCarthy, were both great jockeys
between the early 1980's to early 2000's. Occasionally, the two families would
get together and that's when Katie and Trevor first met, playing together as
Their adult fairytale began on January 1st, 2018, when Trevor and Katie started
dating. Katie recalls, "We went to Foxwoods casino to enjoy the new year
and he asked me out, on the dance floor. I kinda was hesitant lol and he got so
worried lol. I laughed and said yes of course it was cute." On
August 20th, 2019, Trevor proposed to Katie after the races at a Delaware
restaurant. Katie was "so surprised," she said.
The last year and a half has been a roller coaster for Katie and Trevor.
They planned on getting married on April 2nd, 2020 but like so many other
plans, it was derailed by Covid-19. Finally, on December 17th, 2020 Katie and
Trevor McCarthy shared their vows.
But the celebration didn't last long.
The newlywed couple were getting ready to ride in New York to start 2021
when they got hit with bad news. They were informed that any races they were in
together had to be a coupled entry. That means the betting value of the horses
they were on would come down.
This jeopardized Katie's career as many horse trainers were reluctant to give Katie
mounts. They both continued to fight the decision, but ultimately Katie started
riding in Maryland while Trevor stayed in New York.
Last week news broke that Trevor got an opportunity and will be moving his tack
to Southern California. He will start to ride Memorial Day weekend at Santa
Anita. Katie will look for an opportunity down the road. "I'm going to
take it one step at a time, but I would love to ride again because it's in my
blood!!" she exclaimed.
Katie's last ride until the move to
California was of all things, on Mother's Day, 2021, winning Race 4 at Pimlico
on #11 FAIRY WISH, paying $5.60.
See the race below:
Today, on Mother's Day, the couple announced to Horse Racing Radar that they are
expecting their first child. Katie is two-months pregnant and is due December
17th. This will be Trevor's parents, Michael and Krista's first grandchild. The
newborn will be the lucky seventh grandchild for Katie's parents Robbie and
Katie and Trevor are two of the nicest people you will ever talk to and meet.
They have both been on our Player's Edge Podcast and have been such class acts. We at
Horse Racing Radar and The Player's Edge Podcast want to congratulate Katie and
Trevor. We wish them nothing but the best going forward.
