Part-time Camden resident Willie McCarthy wrapped up his first National Steeplechase Association leading rider championship with one meet left on the schedule. McCarthy, a native of County Cork, Ireland, rode Magalen O. Bryant’s Kings Giant to victory in a maiden hurdle in Sunday’s Charleston Cup and is assured of wearing the jockey crown coming into Saturday’s Marion duPont Scott Colonial Cup in Camden. He has 23 wins, nine more than his closest pursuers in defending champion Paddy Young and Ross Geraghty.
