Gregg McCarron retiring as jockey

April 23, 1993|By Ross Peddicord

Gregg McCarron, the 44-year-old, Pimlico-based jockey who has won 2,403 races, announced yesterday that he is retiring after a 24-year riding career.

"I'm proud of what I accomplished," McCarron said. "But it's time to move on. I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I plan to spend some time away from the racetrack. I wouldn't rule out pursuing another career in racing, because I love horses."
