THE DANGERS OF HORSING AROUND

Danny Aiello didn't need his alter ego Dellaventura to figure out why his right foot was throbbing. He had 1,000 pounds of evidence.

During a visit to the Meadowlands Racetrack on Wednesday to shoot scenes for his CBS detective drama "Dellaventura," Aiello stood behind an 8-year-old gelding named High Tier who stepped back on his right foot. X-rays showed no serious damage, and doctors gave him the go-ahead to resume filming.

"It certainly wasn't the horse's fault," Aiello said. "I should have known better than to stand behind him. I like horses and being around them. I just wasn't paying attention."

The episode will air in November or early December.
