Ernest Parnetti, of Downingtown, thought he should have won Delaware Park's twin trifecta Wednesday afternoon. He went to the paddock, saw a horse he liked had bandages on his front legs and changed his mind. The horse won - but Parnetti didn't. Parnetti was determined not to make the same mistake again. "I did my handicapping (for yesterday) the night before," Parnetti said. "This time, I didn't change my mind. " And this time, Ernest Parnetti got the money. Big money.

The Pennsylvania Horse Racing Commission removed a jockey from Tuesday's ninth race at Philadelphia Park after another rider claimed that the jockey attempted to fix the outcome of the trifecta event.

The 100-day meet, which includes the return of the Grade I Delaware Handicap, simulcasts of nine major stakes, including the Triple Crown, and the double-your-pleasure twin trifecta, ends Sept.
