Identification and Conduct of Mutuel Employees

(1) A race meet licensee's mutuel department, at every race meeting, must be conducted in a strict, dignified, and proper manner. All pari-mutuel selling machines must be located only in places easily accessible and in plain view of the general public. All employees coming in contact with patrons must at all times demean themselves in respectful and temperate fashion.

(2) Every employee of the mutuel department, who by nature of his employment comes in contact with patrons, shall be designated by name or number, that easy identification may be made by the public.

Closing Wagering and Locking Pari-Mutuel Machines

(1) For Horse Racing: The pari-mutuel machines must be locked when the starting gates open. Unless the pari-mutuel machines were locked through error, they may not be reopened once they have been locked, even if there is a malfunction of the starting gate which causes a delay or a scratch.

(2) For Greyhound Racing: The pari-mutuel machines shall not be locked until the lure begins to move, signifying the start of the race. After the lure has commenced to move, if there is a malfunction of the starting box which causes a delay, at the sole discretion of the board of judges, the pari-mutuel machines may be reopened for wagering. In addition, if the pari-mutuel machines were locked through error, the board of judges may order the machines reopened for wagering.

Totalizator and Tote Board Operations

(1) The race meet licensee shall install, maintain in operable condition and operate continuously an electric totalizator during each meeting.

(2) A totalizator shall be so designed that it will indicate the total amounts and the amounts on each runner, entry and field so wagered from time to time as the wagering progresses. There shall be operated in connection with such totalizator one or more boards on which shall be prominently displayed, within view of the public, winning odds on each runner as indicated from time to time during the progress of such wagering, and at intervals of not more than ninety (90) seconds between each complete change. The totalizator shall be designed so that the ticket machines shall be automatically locked by the stewards or judges by the pressing of a button ringing what is commonly known as the "off bell."

(3) The presiding steward or the presiding judge or his/her appointed official shall push the button that closes the pari-mutuel machines, and shall see to it that every effort in the racing operation is made by all departments to meet advertised post time.

(4) At no time shall the odds board display odds to figure less than a gross of 104 percent or more than a gross of 127 percent.

(5) Copies of all takeoff sheets from the totalizator, or otherwise, shall be delivered at once to the supervisor of mutuels or his/her representative.

(6) The calculator of the approximate odds shall keep a complete detailed record of each race containing each change of readings of odds, the percentage figures on the final reading and the actual possible "payoff" on each runner. Such records shall be delivered to the supervisor of mutuels at the end of each racing day.

(7) Any faulty operation of the totalizator or infield board (tote board) shall be explained in detail in a written report by the "tote operator," and a copy of said report given to the manager of mutuels and to the state supervisor of mutuels without delay. Said report shall be immediately communicated to the Oregon Racing Commission.

(8) Whenever the totalizator mechanism fails and is obviously unreliable as to the amounts wagered, all figures on the "tote board" so affected shall be removed immediately and the payoff shall be computed on the sums wagered in each pool, as shown by the recapitulation of the sales registered by each individual ticket issuing machine.

(9) Whenever there is a difference in any pool or pools (i.e., a difference between the sum total of the wagers on individual runners as compared with the grand total as shown by the "tote board"), the larger amount shall be used as the base on which the commissions are computed and paid to the race meet licensee and to the state, respectively.

(10) If an error is made in posting the payoff prices on the "tote board," it shall be corrected promptly, and the public shall be so advised of the correction by announcement over the public address system. The correct amounts so announced shall be used in the payoff, irrespective of the amounts posted on the "tote board."

(11) Nothing in these rules shall be construed to prevent the stewards/judges from correcting an error before the display of the sign "Official." If the "Official" sign is displayed in error, in the order of finish or incorrectly posted mutuel prices, and the error is discovered within forty eight (48) hours after the displaying of the "Official" sign, the pools and purses shall be calculated in the correct manner and the race meet licensee shall assume any losses. Holders of pari-mutuel tickets cashed prior to discovery of such error shall not have any claim for any additional or corrected amounts.

(12) Prices shall not be displayed before the race is "official" and prices shall be promptly displayed after the race is declared "official."

Emergency

(1) Should an emergency arise in connection with the operation of the pari-mutuel department not specifically covered by these rules and an immediate decision be necessary, the manager of the pari-mutuel department shall make the decision and shall make an explanation in detail in a written report to the state supervisor of mutuels immediately, and said report shall be forthwith communicated to the commission.

(2) In case of unanticipated and unforeseen emergencies and delays (such as electrical failure, totalizator problems, etc.) which arise either preceding or during the conduct of a race program, the stewards/judges may take any action which they deem appropriate to permit the completion of such program, including, but not limited to, extending wagering and running of races beyond the hour of midnight. Any such extension shall be considered a part of a single, continuing race day, and not as a new race day. A complete report of any event requiring invocation of this rule shall be filed by the stewards/judges with the commission secretary.

Unclaimed Winnings Account

(1) Every race meet licensee conducting a race meet or continuous race meet shall carry on its books for each race meet an account to be known as the Unclaimed Winnings Account showing the total amount due on outstanding winning mutuel wagering tickets not presented for payment. All funds in the Unclaimed Winnings Account shall be retained by the licensee and deposited in a separate account from all other funds. No payments shall be made by the licensee from this account except to a person who presents a valid, clearly identifiable winning ticket. The account number and place of deposit shall be reported to the commission within 96 hours of the first day of the race meet or continuous race meet. All deposits by the licensee to the Unclaimed Winnings Account shall be made by the third business day following each race day. A statement of the balance of the Unclaimed Winnings Account shall be furnished to the commission within 72 hours after any change in the account balance during the race meet, and after the race meet, within five days following the last day of each month in which there is any change in the account balance.

(2) Any person claiming to be entitled to any part of the winnings from a mutuel wagering system operated by the race meet licensee, who fails to claim the money due such person prior to the competition of the race meet at which the pari-mutuel wagering ticket was purchased, may within 90 days after the close of the meet file with the race meet licensee a claim, in such form as the commission shall prescribe, accompanied by the valid winning ticket. If the claimant establishes the right to winnings from the mutuel wagering system, the race meet licensee shall pay such winnings to the claimant. At the expiration of such 90 day period, the holder of such a winning ticket shall possess no right to any portion of the wagering and the ticket shall be deemed void. Not withstanding the provisions of this section, if the 90th day prescribed herein falls upon a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, then the holder shall file such claim with the licensee on the first business day thereafter.

(3) One hundred and twenty days after the close of a race meet conducted by a race meet licensee or after the close of a continuous race meet conducted by two or more race meet licensees, and amount equal to the outstanding balance of the Unclaimed Winnings Account shall be paid to the commission.

Pari-Mutuel Tickets

(1) A pari-mutuel ticket is evidence of a contribution to the pari-mutuel pool operated by the race meet licensee and is evidence of the obligation of the race meet licensee to pay to the holder thereof such portion of the distributable amount of the pari-mutuel pool as is represented by such valid pari-mutuel ticket. The race meet licensee shall cash all valid winning tickets when such are presented for payment during the course of the meeting where sold, and for a specified period after the last day of the meeting.

Pari-Mutuel Ticket Sales

(1) Pari-mutuel tickets shall not be sold by anyone other than an race meet licensee licensed to conduct pari-mutuel wagering.

(3) Pari-mutuel tickets may be exchanged or cancelled prior to the running of a race pursuant to the written policies of the race meet licensee. Such policies shall not be implemented or changed prior to being approved by the commission.

(4) Payment on winning pari-mutuel wagers shall be made on the basis of the order of finish as purposely posted and declared "official." Any subsequent change in the order of finish or award of purse money as may result from a subsequent ruling by the stewards or commission shall in no way affect the pari-mutuel payoff. If an error in the posted order of finish or payoff figures is discovered, the official order of finish or payoff prices may be corrected and an announcement concerning the change shall be made to the public.

Pay Out

(1) All money wagered on a scratched horse/greyhound shall be refunded. If a horse is left in the starting gate when the doors of the starting gate open at the start, there shall be no refund except on a horse which the stewards determine to be a non-starter. If a greyhound is left in the starting box when the doors of the starting box open at the start, there shall be no refund. However, in any race which is declared "no race" all moneys wagered shall be refunded.

(2) If a greyhound is placed in the wrong numbered starting box when the doors of the starting box open, there shall be no refund.

(3) Pay outs on wagering may begin as soon as the stewards/judges declare a posted order of finish to be "official."

The claim shall be made on such form as approved by the commission, and the claimant shall make such claim under penalty of perjury. The original of such claim shall be forwarded to the commission within 48 hours.

(2) In the case of a claim made for payment of a mutilated pari-mutuel ticket which does not contain the total imprinted elements required in OAR 462-200-0170(2) of these provisions, the race meet licensee shall make a recommendation to accompany the claim forwarded to the commission as to whether or not the mutilated ticket has sufficient elements to be positively identified as a winning ticket.

(3) In the case of a claim made for payment on a pari-mutuel wager, the commission shall adjudicate the claim and may order payment thereon from the pari-mutuel pool or by the race meet licensee, or may deny the claim, or may make such other order as it may deem proper.

Payment for Errors

If an error occurs in the payment amounts for pari-mutuel wagers which are cashed or entitled to be cashed; and as a result of such error the pari-mutuel pool involved in the error is not correctly distributed among winning ticket holders, the following shall apply:

(1) Verification is required to show that the amount of the commission, the amount in breakage, and the amount in payoffs is equal to the total gross pool. If the amount of the pool is more than the amount used to calculate the payoff, the underpayment shall revert and belong to the State of Oregon and be paid to the commission and become part of its fund, and shall not be retained by the race meet licensee under whose license such meet was held.

(2) In the event the error results in an overpayment to winning wagers, the race meet licensee shall be responsible for such payment.

Coupled Entries and Mutuel Fields

(1) Contestants coupled in wagering as a coupled entry or mutuel field shall be considered part of a single betting interest for the purpose of price calculations and distribution of pools. Should any contestant in a coupled entry or mutuel field be officially withdrawn or scratched, the remaining contestants in that coupled entry or mutuel field shall remain valid betting interests. If all contestants within a coupled entry or mutuel field are scratched, then tickets on such betting interests shall be refunded, notwithstanding other provisions of these rules.

(2) For the purpose of price calculations only, coupled entries and mutuel fields shall be calculated as a single finisher, using the finishing position of the leading contestant in that coupled entry or mutuel field to determine order of placing. This rule shall apply to all circumstances, including situations involving a dead heat, except as otherwise provided by these rules.

Approval Criteria of the Commission for Authorizing Receiving Tracks

The Oregon Racing Commission will use the following criteria to approve Oregon tracks (race meet licensees) to receive out-of-state simulcast signals.

(1) During Live Race Meet. The Oregon track must be conducting a live race meet during the time in which it is requesting to simulcast in the out-of-state races. The commission will use calendar weeks in determining if a race meet is being conducted by the track during the time that the simulcasting of out-of-state racing is being requested.

(2) Consent. A race meet that wishes to simulcast in races from out-of-state must receive the consent from the organization which represents the majority of the persons who race animals at the meet. If in the opinion of the commission this consent is being unreasonably withheld the commission may waive this requirement.

(3) Purses. An application for simulcasting must include a method for protecting purses at the live meet from the effects of simulcasting. Unless otherwise approved by the commission or a different agreement is reached pursuant to the consent requirement set out in section (2) of this rule, the commission will require that purses shall be paid as a percentage of total handle (live+simulcast).

(4) Live Signals. A race meet authorized to simulcast must send its live signal to all off-track outlets. The off-track outlets must accept the signal of any Oregon track which simulcasts its live signal to the exclusion of any out-of-state signal.

(5) Singularity of Importing Race Meets. The commission will not approve more than one Oregon race meet to import out-of-state signals during the same day(s).

(6) Allocation of Simulcast Dates. On a date set during January of each year, the commission will accept and consider proposals to simulcast submitted by commercial race meets scheduled to begin during that calendar year. For race meets which have not yet received a license to run a live meet during that year, any authorization to simulcast will be subject to the receipt and approval of an application for a race meet license. In the event the commission receives more than one proposal to simulcast during the same period of time, preference will be given to the best overall proposal. Consideration will be given to all factors the commission deems relevant, including but not limited to: the number of live performances, history and financial strength of its principals and licensees, and the quality of the race meet facility.

General Operations of Off-Track Facility

(1) The video/audio signal receiving controls, the fax machine and ring-down phone or business system phone with speed dial must all be in an area accessible to the mutuel line supervisor.

(2) The mutuel windows and self service machines at the off-track facilities will be open upon the broadcast of the video display to the off-track facility of the first performance to be carried at the off-track site that day. Once the site is open for wagering on a given day, wagers may be taken on races from performances scheduled to be available at the site later that day.

(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this rule, the track operator managing the off-track site may submit a plan to the Oregon Racing Commission for approval in the event an employee of the track operator will not be physically present at the off-track site. The plan will include provisions for displaying the signal, facility wagering, customer problem resolution and cashing tickets/vouchers.

(3) Signal Priority and Continuity of Program. The advent of off-track wagering was to enhance live racing in Oregon. For that reason, the priority of the signals going to the off-track sites should be set in a way which supports that public policy. The priority of signals shall be as follows:

(a) Any signal of a live race originating from a racetrack in the State of Oregon.

(b) Simulcast signals which the track and the off-track site may agree upon which best meets the desires of the patrons at the site, in priority order, limited by the number of satellite dishes the site may have. All contracts between tracks and off track sites shall contain a provision which states they are subject to the authority of the commission to consider the mix and balance of simulcast signals offered to off-track sites during the review of individual race meet applications.

(4) Track Responsibilities. The Oregon race meet licensee is responsible to the commission for the proper conduct and performance in all aspects of the operation of the off-track sites approved to carry the signal(s) of the race meet license. The race meet operator shall report to the commission's designee all problems encountered at off-track sites in a timely fashion, along with solutions or proposed solutions. At a minimum the race meet licensee shall ensure the following prior to allowing the initial start up and the continued operation of an off-track site:

(a) There are qualified and properly trained mutuel employees of a sufficient number to reasonably be expected to handle the number of patrons at the site;

(b) That data line is in place and operating. That a separate voice phone line and a fax line are in good working order. All lines must be separate from the other lines required by this rule and other lines in the facility and shall not be used by unauthorized persons;

(c) That audio visual signals are secure from receipt by unauthorized sites and are of a quality to allow viewers an exemplary depiction of the racing program;

(d) That the totalizator system is configured in a manner to allow accurate and timely transmission of wagers, wagering information and odds to and from the off track site, as well as reports which provide wagering information of the site individually;

(e) Timely distribution of all program; past performance information; weight changes; over weights; tip sheets where available; and any other information made available to the patrons at the race meet licensee's track, to the off track site(s) so that such information can be made available, in a legible format, to the patrons at the off track site;

(f) Dissemination of surcharge information to the off-track sites;

(g) Provide the necessary management of off-track site mutuel employees.

(5) Site Responsibilities. Off-track site operators shall provide a site which is suitable for the conduct of off-track wagering activity. Off-track sites are an extension of the race track's public area and should be of a standard which enhances the image of racing in the State of Oregon. Off-track sites must provide the following prior to start-up of the site and for the continued operation of the site:

(a) A clean well lighted area for patrons during the wagering performances.

(b) Clean rest room facilities for the public.

(c) An area suitable for the placement of wagering terminals and which provides adequate safety and security for the mutuel employees working at the site.

(d) An area in which the necessary decoders, modems, fax machine, and voice line phone can be securely housed within easy reach of the mutuel employees.

(e) A safe, approved by the racing commission, for safe keeping of the money used for the pari-mutuel wagering activity between the performances.

(f) Posting of the surcharge information in a conspicuous place for inspection by the wagering public.

(g) A written security plan and provisions approved by the racing commission.

(6) Equipment Related. The issue as to who is responsible for providing which pieces of equipment necessary for the conduct of the waging activity can be set forth in the contract between the race meet licensee and the off-track site; however, the commission will hold the race meet licensee responsible for ensuring all of the necessary equipment is available and in good working order. At a minimum the following equipment must be on site:

(a) Enough wagering terminals to adequately serve the number of patrons reasonably expected to be in attendance at the site. In addition, one extra wagering terminal as a backup for those sites over 30 minutes driving time from the race meet licensee track.

(b) The necessary number of satellite dishes and audio/visual monitors. The satellite dishes will be installed in a manner which will withstand the weather conditions normally expected at the off-track site.

(c) A fax machine, a voice telephone for communication with the tote room and mutuel office at the race track. Both the fax machine and the voice phone must be on separate lines and must be immediately available to the mutuel employees at the site. The lines may not be used for other purposes at the site.

(7) The track will ensure its staff at the off-track site are instructed in and be knowledgeable of the operation of the satellite signal receiving and tote equipment in use on site.

(8) When there is a loss of data transmission, the wagering at the facility will be cancelled until the data transmission can be re-established. Tickets purchased prior to the loss of data transmission will be considered valid wagers. Winning tickets will only be cashed after the data transmission to the mutuel machines has been re-established.

Surcharges

(1) The method of charging surcharges will be set forth in the race meet licensee's application for off track sites. The percentage of the surcharge will be in an amount agreed on by the race meet licensee and the off track site, set forth in the contract between the race meet licensee and the off track site and approved by the commission. No surcharge may be in an amount over 5% of the wager or the winnings depending on the surcharge method chosen.

(2) The distribution of the surcharge will be set forth in the contract between the race meet licensee and the off-track site. Payment of the surcharge to the parties or account(s) entitled to a portion of the surcharge will be made at least every two weeks and not later than five (5) days after the last day of racing of the two week period. Surcharge amounts will be deposited into a separate account containing only surcharges from off-track sites on a weekly basis. All surcharge monies will remain in that account until such time as they are distributed to the parties or account(s) entitled to a portion of the monies.

(3) If a portion of the surcharge is to be used for advertising or promotion per the contract between the race meet licensee and the off-track site, the party holding the funds will maintain a ledger showing the amount of money deposited in the "advertising/promotion" account for each off-track site, the amount of money spent for advertising/promotion of each off-track site, and the amount of money available for expenditure for each off-track site.

(a) The race meet licensee and the off-track site shall prepare a written agreement prior to the opening of the site regarding an advertising/promotion program which includes what types of expenditures will fall into the "advertising/promotion" category, and whether the payment of the funds will be made on a reimbursement or a direct payment basis. (If the payment from the advertising fund is a reimbursement, payment shall be made not later than ten (10) days after the receipt of the appropriate documentation and invoice by the holder of the funds. If the payment is directly to the vendor of the service, payment shall be made by the holder of the funds within the time-line set forth on the invoice, given that proper documentation has been received.) A copy of the plan shall be available for inspection by a representative of the commission at either the race meet licensee's track or the off-track site.

(b) In cases of a dispute between the race meet licensee and the off-track site as to payment of invoices, the amount of money available for an off-track site, or other issue regarding the advertising/promotion account, the holder of the funds will make all records available to the commission or its representative.

(c) Disbursement of portions of the surcharge dedicated to advertising and promotion not used during a race meet shall be set forth in the contract between the race meet licensee and the off track-site.

(4) Surcharges may be charged using one of two methods: A surcharge on the amount wagered; or, A surcharge on the amount of the winnings at the time the winnings are paid.

(a) Surcharge on the Amount Wagered. A surcharge on the amount wagered may be an amount up to 5% which will be collected, at the time of the wager, in addition to the amount actually wagered. The surcharge will not be considered as part of the mutuel pool and will be accounted for separately from the mutuel pool. In cases of a refund, the surcharge amount will also be refunded.

(b) Surcharge on the Amount of Winnings. "Winnings" is defined as the unbroken on-track price of the winning payout.

(A) After the $1 Unbroken On-Track Price is Calculated:

(i) Surcharge Liability = $1 Unbroken On-Track Price x Surcharge %;

(ii) $1 Unbroken Off-Track Price = $1 Unbroken On-Track Price - Surcharge Amount;

(iii) $1 Broken Off-Track Profit = $1 Unbroken Off-Track Price Rounded Down to the Break Point;

(iv) Posted Off-Track Price = $1 Broken Off-Track Price x $2;

(v) Total Off-Track Payout = $1 Broken Off-Track Price x Gross Amount Bet on Winner at Off-Track Sites;

(vi) Total Off-Track Breakage = $1 Breakage x Gross Amount Bet on Winner at Off-Track Sites and Cashed;

(vii) Total Surcharge = $1 Surcharge Amount x Gross Amount Bet on Winner at Off-Track Sites and Cashed.

NOTE: Surcharges on Winnings are paid at the time the winnings are paid, therefore, prior to the cashing of the winning ticket the surcharge and off track breakage amounts are liabilities only.

(B) Winnings shall not be surcharged when it would cause the profit on one dollar wagered to be reduced below five cents.

(C) The surcharge on winnings will be paid when the wagerer cashes the winning ticket. The totalizator system shall provide a daily report showing the surcharges paid from cashed tickets from previous day's wagering, surcharges paid from today's tickets and surcharge payables to date. This report shall also show the debits and credits between off-track sites.

(D) Surcharges received from surcharges on winnings shall be credited to the site at which the wager was placed.

(E) Surcharges on the winnings shall not be deducted from the unclaimed winnings reverting to the State of Oregon.

Calculation of Payoffs and Distribution of Pools

462-200-0460

General

(1) All permitted pari-mutuel wagering pools shall be separately and independently calculated and distributed. Takeout shall be deducted from each gross pool as stipulated by law. The remainder of the monies in the pool shall constitute the net pool for distribution as payoff on winning wagers.

(2) For each wagering pool, the amount wagered on the winning betting interest or betting combinations is deducted from the net pool to determine the profit; the profit is then divided by the amount wagered on the winning betting interest or combinations, such quotient being the profit per dollar.

(3) Either the standard or net price calculation procedure may be used to calculate single commission pools, while the net price calculation procedure must be used to calculate multi-commission pools.

(a) Standard Price Calculation Procedure:

(A) SINGLE PRICE POOL (WIN POOL):

(i) Gross pool = sum of wagers on all betting interests - refunds;

(ii) Takeout = gross pool x percent takeout;

(iii) Net pool = gross pool - takeout;

(iv) Profit = net pool - gross amount bet on winner;

(v) Profit per dollar = profit / gross amount bet on winner;

(vi) $1 unbroken price = profit per dollar + $1;

(vii) $1 broken price = $1 unbroken price rounded down to the break point;

(viii) Total pay out = $1 broken price x gross amount bet on winner;

(ix) Total breakage = net pool - total pay out.

(B) PROFIT SPLIT (PLACE POOL):

(i) Profit is net pool less gross amount bet on all place finishers;

(ii) Finishers split profit 1/2 and 1/2 (place profit), then divide by gross amount bet on each place finisher for two unique prices.

(C) PROFIT SPLIT (SHOW POOL):

(i) Profit is net pool less gross amount bet on all show finishers;

(ii) Finishers split profit 1/3 and 1/3 and 1/3 (show profit), then divide by gross amount bet on each show finisher for three unique prices.

(b) Net Price Calculation Procedure:

(A) SINGLE PRICE POOL (WIN POOL):

(i) Gross pool = sum of wagers on all betting interests - refunds for each source;

(ii) Takeout = gross pool x percent takeout;

(iii) * for each source:

(I) Net pool = gross pool - takeout;

(II) Net bet on winner = gross amount bet on winner x (1 - percent takeout);

(iv) Total net pool = sum of all sources net pools;

(v) Total net bet on winner = sum of all sources net bet on winner;

(vi) Total profit = total net pool - total net bet on winner;

(vii) Profit per dollar = total profit / total net bet on winner;

(viii) $1 unbroken base price = profit per dollar + $1 for each source:

(ix) * for each source:

(I) $1 unbroken price = $1 unbroken base price x (1 — percent takeout);

(II) $1 broken price = $1 unbroken price rounded down to the break point;

(x) Total payout = $1 broken price x gross amount bet on winner;

(xi) Total breakage = net pool — total payout.

(B) PROFIT SPLIT (PLACE POOL):

(i) Total profit is the total net pool less the total net amount bet on all place finishers.

(ii) Finishers split total profit 1/2 and 1/2 (place profit), then divide by total net amount bet on each place finisher for two unique unbroken base prices.

(C) PROFIT SPLIT (SHOW POOL):

(i) Total profit is the total net pool less the total net amount bet on all show finishers.

(ii) Finishers split total profit 1/3 and 1/3 and 1/3 (show profit), then divide by total net amount bet on each show finisher for three unique unbroken base prices.

(4) If a profit split results in only one covered winning betting interest or combinations it shall be calculated the same as a single price pool.

(5) Minimum payoffs and the method used for calculating breakage shall be established by the commission.

(6) The individual pools outlined in these rules may be given alternative names by each race meet licensee, provided prior approval is obtained from the commission.

(2) The net Win pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to winning wagers in the following precedence, based upon the official order of finish:

(a) To those whose selection finished first; but if there are no such wagers; then

(b) To those whose selection finished second; but if there are no such wagers; then

(c) To those whose selection finished third; but if there are no such wagers; then

(d) The entire pool shall be refunded on Win wagers for that contest.

(3) If there is a dead heat for first involving:

(a) Contestants representing the same betting interest, the Win pool shall be distributed as if no dead heat occurred.

Place Pools

(1) The amounts wagered to Place on the first two betting interests to finish are deducted from the net pool, the balance remaining being the profit; the profit is divided into two equal portions, one being assigned to each winning betting interest and divided by the amount wagered to Place on that betting interest, the resulting quotient is the profit per dollar wagered to Place on that betting interest.

(2) The net Place pool shall be distributed to winning wagers in the following precedence, based upon the official order of finish:

(a) If contestants of a coupled entry or mutuel field finished in the first two places, as a single price pool to those who selected the coupled entry or mutuel field; otherwise

(b) As a profit split to those whose selection is included within the first two finishers; but if there are no such wagers on one of those two finishers; then

(c) As a single price pool to those who selected the one covered betting interest included within the first two finishers; but if there are no such wagers; then

(d) As a single price pool to those who selected the third-place finisher; but if there are no such wagers; then

(e) The entire pool shall be refunded on Place wagers for that contest.

(3) If there is a dead heat for first involving:

(a) Contestants representing the same betting interest, the Place pool shall be distributed as a single price pool.

(b) Contestants representing two or more betting interests, the Place pool shall be distributed as a profit split.

Show Pools

(1) The amounts wagered to Show on the first three betting interests to finish are deducted from the net pool, the balance remaining being the profit; the profit is divided into three equal portions, one being assigned to each winning betting interest and divided by the amount wagered to Show on that betting interest, the resulting quotient being the profit per dollar wagered to Show on that betting interest.

(2) The net Show pool shall be distributed to winning wagers in the following precedence, based upon the official order of finish:

(a) If contestants of a coupled entry or mutuel field finished in the first three places, as a single price pool to those who selected the coupled entry or mutuel field; otherwise

(b) If contestants of a coupled entry or mutuel field finished as two of the first three finishers, the profit is divided with two-thirds (2/3) distributed to those who selected the coupled entry or mutuel field and one-third (1/3) distributed to those who selected the other betting interest included within the first three finishers; otherwise

(c) As a profit split to those whose selection is included within the first three finishers; but if there are no such wagers on one of those three finishers; then

(f) As a single price pool to those who selected the fourth-place finisher; but if there are no such wagers; then

(g) The entire pool shall be refunded on Show wagers for that contest.

(3) If there is a dead heat for first involving:

(b) Three contestants representing a single betting interest, the Show pool shall be distributed as a single price pool.

(c) Contestants representing two or more betting interests, the Show pool shall be distributed as a profit split.

(4) If there is a dead heat for second involving:

Double Pools

(1) The Double requires selection of the first-place finisher in each of two specified contests.

(2) The net Double pool shall be distributed to winning wagers in the following precedence, based upon the official order of finish:

(a) As a single price pool to those whose selection finished first in each of the two contests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(b) As a profit split to those who selected the first-place finisher in either of the two contests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(e) The entire pool shall be refunded on Double wagers for those contests.

(3) If there is a dead heat for first in either of the two contests involving:

(a) Contestants representing the same betting interest, the Double pool shall be distributed as if no dead heat occurred.

(b) Contestants representing two or more betting interests, the Double pool shall be distributed as a profit split if there is more than one covered winning combination.

(4) Should a betting interest in the first half of the Double be scratched prior to the first Double contest being declared official, all money wagered on combinations including the scratched betting interest shall be deducted from the Double pool and refunded.

(5) Should a betting interest in the second-half of the Double be scratched prior to the close of wagering on the first Double contest, all money wagered on combinations including the scratched betting interest shall be deducted from the Double pool and refunded.

(6) Should a betting interest in the second-half of the Double be scratched after the close of wagering on the first Double contest, all wagers combining the winner of the first contest with the scratched betting interest in the second contest shall be allocated a consolation payoff. In calculating the consolation payoff the net Double pool shall be divided by the total amount wagered on the winner of the first contest and an unbroken consolation price obtained. The broken consolation price is multiplied by the dollar value of wagers on the winner of the first contest combined with the scratched betting interest to obtain the consolation payoff. Breakage is not declared in this calculation. The consolation payoff is deducted from the net Double pool before calculation and distribution of the winning Double payoff. Dead heats including separate betting interests in the first contest shall result in a consolation payoff calculated as a profit split.

Pick (n) Pools

(1) The Pick (n) requires selection of the first-place finisher in each of a designated number of contests. The race meet licensee must obtain written approval from the commission concerning the scheduling of Pick (n) contests, the designation of one of the methods prescribed in Part (2) and the amount of any cap to be set on the carryover. Any changes to the approved Pick (n) format require prior approval from the commission.

(2) The Pick (n) pool shall be apportioned under one of the following methods:

(a) Method 1, Pick (n) with Carryover: The net Pick (n) pool and carryover, if any, shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no such wagers, then a designated percentage of the net pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests; and the remainder shall be added to the carryover.

(b) Method 2, Pick (n) with Minor Pool Carryover: The major share of the net Pick (n) pool and the carryover, if any, shall be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. The minor share of the net Pick (n) pool shall be distributed to those who selected the first place finisher in the second greatest number of Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no wagers selecting the first-place finisher of all Pick (n) contests, the minor share of the Pick (n) pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests; and the major share shall be added to the carryover.

(c) Method 3, Pick (n) with No Minor Pool and No Carryover: The net Pick (n) pool shall be distributed as a single pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no winning wagers, the pool is refunded.

(d) Method 4, Pick (n) with Minor Pool and No Carryover: The major share of the net Pick (n) pool shall be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. The minor share of the Pick (n) pool shall be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher in the second greatest number of Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no wagers selecting the first-place finisher in a second greatest number of Pick (n) contests, the minor share of the net Pick (n) pool shall be combined with the major share for distribution as a single price pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests. If the greatest number of first-place finishers selected is one (1), the major and minor shares are combined for distribution as a single price pool. If there are no winning wagers, the pool is refunded.

(e) Method 5, Pick (n) with Minor Pool and No Carryover: The major share of net Pick (n) pool shall be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, based on the official order of finish. The minor share of the Pick (n) pool shall be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher in the second greatest number of Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no wagers selecting the first-place finisher in all Pick (n) contests, the entire net Pick (n) pool shall be distributed as a single pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests. If there are no wagers selecting the first-place finisher in the second greatest number of Pick (n) contests, the minor share of the net Pick (n) pool shall be combined with the major share for distribution as a single price pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests. If there are no winning wagers, the pool is refunded.

(3) If there is a dead heat for first in any of the Pick (n) contests involving:

(a) Contestants representing the same betting interest, the Pick (n) pool shall be distributed as if no dead heat occurred.

(b) Contestants representing two or more betting interests, the Pick (n) pool shall be distributed as a single price pool with each winning wager receiving an equal share of the profit.

(4) Should a betting interest in any of the Pick (n) contests be scratched, the actual favorite, as evidenced by total amounts wagered in the Win pool at the host race meet licensee for the contest at the close of wagering on that contest, shall be substituted for the scratched betting interest for all purposes, including pool calculations. In the event that the Win pool total for two or more favorites is identical, the substitute selection shall be the betting interest with the lowest program number. The totalizator shall produce reports showing each of the wagering combinations with substituted betting interests which became winners as a result of the substitution, in addition to the normal winning combination.

(5) The Pick (n) pool shall be cancelled and all Pick (n) wagers for the individual performance shall be refunded if:

(a) At least two contests included as part of a Pick 3 are cancelled or declared "no contest."

(b) At least three contests included as part of a Pick 4, Pick 5 or Pick 6 are cancelled or declared "no contest."

(c) At least four contests included as part of a Pick 7, Pick 8 or Pick 9 are cancelled or declared "no contest."

(d) At least five contests included as part of a Pick 10 are cancelled or declared "no contest."

(6) If at least one contest included as part of a Pick (n) is cancelled or declared "no contest," but not more than the number specified in subsection 5 of this rule, the net pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests for that performance. Such distribution shall include the portion ordinarily retained for the Pick (n) carryover but not the carryover from previous performances.

(7) The Pick (n) carryover may be capped at a designated level approved by the commission so that if, at the close of any performance, the amount in the Pick (n) carryover equals or exceeds the designated cap, the Pick (n) carryover will be frozen until it is won or distributed under other provisions of this rule. After the Pick (n) carryover is frozen, 100 percent of the net pool, part of which ordinarily would be added to the Pick (n) carryover, shall be distributed to those whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests for that performance.

(8) A written request for permission to distribute the Pick (n) carryover on a specific performance may be submitted to the commission. The request must contain justification for the distribution, an explanation of the benefit to be derived, and the intended date and performance for the distribution.

(9) Should the Pick (n) carryover be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance in which there are no wagers selecting the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, the entire pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests. The Pick (n) carryover shall be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance only under the following circumstances:

(a) Upon written approval from the commission as provided in subsection 8 of this rule.

(b) Upon written approval from the commission when there is a change in the carryover cap, a change from one type of Pick (n) wagering to another, or when the Pick (n) is discontinued.

(c) On the closing performance of the meet or split meet.

(10) If, for any reason, the Pick (n) carryover must be held over to the corresponding Pick (n) pool of a subsequent meet, the carryover shall be deposited in an interest bearing account approved by the commission. The Pick (n) carryover plus accrued interest shall then be added to the net Pick (n) pool of the following meet on a date and performance so designated by the commission.

(11) With the written approval of the commission, the race meet licensee may contribute to the Pick (n) carryover a sum of money up to the amount of any designated cap.

(12) Providing information to any person regarding covered combinations, amounts wagered on specific combinations, number of tickets sold, or number of live tickets remaining is strictly prohibited. This shall not prohibit necessary communication between totalizator and pari-mutuel department employees for processing of pool data.

(13) The race meet licensee may suspend previously approved Pick (n) wagering with the prior approval of the commission. Any carryover shall be held until the suspended Pick (n) wagering is reinstated. Any race meet licensee may request approval of a Pick (n) wager or separate wagering pool for specific performances.

(7) Should a betting interest in the second-half of the Quinella Double be scratched prior to the close of wagering on the first Quinella Double contest, all money wagered on combinations including the scratched betting interest shall be deducted from the Quinella Double pool and refunded.

(8) Should a betting interest in the second-half of the Quinella Double be scratched after the close of wagering on the first Quinella Double contest, all wagers combining the winning combination in the first contest with a combination including the scratched betting interest in the second contest shall be allocated a consolation payoff. In calculating the consolation payoff the net Quinella Double pool shall be divided by the total amount wagered on the winning combination in the first contest and an unbroken consolation price obtained. The unbroken consolation price is multiplied by the dollar value of wagers on the winning combination in the first contest combined with a combination including the scratched betting interest in the second contest to obtain the consolation payoff. Breakage is not utilized in this calculation. The consolation payoff is deducted from the net Quinella Double pool before calculation and distribution of the winning Quinella Double payoff. In the event of a dead heat involving separate betting interests, the net Quinella Double pool shall be distributed as a profit split.

(9) If either of the Quinella Double contests is cancelled prior to the first Quinella Double contest, or the first Quinella Double contest is declared "no contest," the entire Quinella Double pool shall be refunded on Quinella Double wagers for those contests.

(10) If the second Quinella Double contest is cancelled or declared "no contest" after the conclusion of the first Quinella Double contest, the net Quinella Double pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to wagers selecting the winning combination in the first Quinella Double contest. If there are no wagers selecting the winning combination in the first Quinella Double contest, the entire Quinella Double pool shall be refunded on Quinella Double wagers for those contests.

Twin Trifecta Pools

(1) The Twin Trifecta requires selection of the first three finishers, in their exact order, in each of two designated contests. Each winning ticket for the first Twin Trifecta contest must be exchanged for a free ticket on the second Twin Trifecta contest in order to remain eligible for the second-half Twin Trifecta pool. Such tickets may be exchanged only at attended ticket windows prior to the second Twin Trifecta contest. Winning first half Twin Trifecta wagers will receive both an exchange and a monetary payoff. Both of the designated Twin Trifecta contests shall be included in only one Twin Trifecta pool.

(2) After wagering closes for the first half of the Twin Trifecta and commissions have been deducted from the pool, the net pool shall then be divided into separate pools: the first half Twin Trifecta pool and the second-half Twin Trifecta pool.

(3) In the first Twin Trifecta contest only, winning wagers shall be determined using the following precedence, based upon the official order of finish for the first Twin Trifecta contest:

(a) As a single price pool to those whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first three betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(b) As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first two betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(c) As a single price pool to those whose combination correctly selected the first-place betting interest only; but if there are no such wagers; then

(d) The entire Twin Trifecta pool shall be refunded on Twin Trifecta wagers for that contest and the second-half shall be cancelled.

(4) If no first half Twin Trifecta ticket selects the first three finishers of that contest in exact order, winning ticket holders shall not receive any exchange tickets for the second-half Twin Trifecta pool. In such case, the second-half Twin Trifecta pool shall be retained and added to any existing Twin Trifecta carryover pool.

(5) Winning tickets from the first half of the Twin Trifecta shall be exchanged for tickets selecting the first three finishers of the second-half of the Twin Trifecta. The second-half Twin Trifecta pool shall be distributed to winning wagers in the following precedence, based upon the official order of finish for the second Twin Trifecta contest:

(a) As a single price pool, including any existing carryover monies, to those whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first three betting interests; but if there are no such tickets; then

(b) the entire second-half Twin Trifecta pool for that contest shall be added to any existing carryover monies and retained for the corresponding second-half Twin Trifecta pool of the next consecutive performance.

(6) If a winning first half Twin Trifecta ticket is not presented for cashing and exchange prior to the second-half Twin Trifecta contest, the ticket holder may still collect the monetary value associated with the first half Twin Trifecta pool but forfeits all rights to any distribution of the second-half Twin Trifecta pool.

(7) Should a betting interest in the first half of the Twin Trifecta be scratched, those Twin Trifecta wagers including the scratched betting interest shall be refunded.

(8) Should a betting interest in the second-half of the Twin Trifecta be scratched, an announcement concerning the scratch shall be made and a reasonable amount of time shall be provided for exchange of tickets that include the scratched betting interest. If tickets have not been exchanged prior to the close of betting for the second Twin Trifecta contest, the ticket holder forfeits all rights to the second-half Twin Trifecta pool.

(9) If, due to a late scratch, the number of betting interests in the second-half of the Twin Trifecta is reduced to fewer than the minimum, all exchange tickets and outstanding first half winning tickets shall be entitled to the second-half Twin Trifecta pool for that contest as a single price pool, but not the Twin-Trifecta carryover.

(10) If there is a dead heat or multiple dead heats in either the first- or second-half of the Twin Trifecta, all Twin Trifecta wagers selecting the correct order of finish, counting a betting interest involved in a dead heat as finishing in any dead-heated position, shall be a winner. In the case of a dead heat occurring in:

(a) The first half of the Twin Trifecta, the payoff shall be calculated as a profit split.

(b) The second-half of the Twin Trifecta, the payoff shall be calculated as a single price pool.

(11) If either of the Twin Trifecta contests are cancelled prior to the first Twin Trifecta contest, or the first Twin Trifecta contest is declared "no contest," the entire Twin Trifecta pool shall be refunded on Twin Trifecta wagers for that contest and the second-half shall be cancelled.

(12) If the second-half Twin Trifecta contest is cancelled or declared "no contest," all exchange tickets and outstanding first half winning Twin Trifecta tickets shall be entitled to the net Twin Trifecta pool for that contest as a single price pool, but not Twin-Trifecta carryover. If there are no such tickets, the net Twin Trifecta pool shall be distributed as described in subsection (3) of the Twin Trifecta rules.

(13) The Twin-Trifecta carryover may be capped at a designated level approved by the commission so that if, at the close of any performance, the amount in the Twin-Trifecta carryover equals or exceeds the designated cap, the Twin-Trifecta carryover will be frozen until it is won or distributed under other provisions of this rule. After the Twin Trifecta carryover is frozen, 100 percent of the net Twin Trifecta pool for each individual contest shall be distributed to winners of the first half of the Twin Trifecta pool.

(14) A written request for permission to distribute the Twin-Trifecta carryover on a specific performance may be submitted to the commission. The request must contain justification for the distribution, an explanation of the benefit to be derived, and the intended date and performance for the distribution.

(15) Should the Twin-Trifecta carryover be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance, the following precedence will be followed in determining winning tickets for the second-half of the Twin Trifecta after completion of the first half of the Twin Trifecta:

(a) As a single price pool to those whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first three betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(b) As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first two betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(c) As a single price pool to those whose combination correctly selected the first-place betting interest only; but if there are no such wagers; then

(d) As a single price pool to holders of valid exchange tickets.

(e) As a single price pool to holders of outstanding first half winning tickets.

(16) Contrary to subsection 4 of the Twin Trifecta rules, during a performance designated to distribute the Twin-Trifecta carryover, exchange tickets will be issued for those combinations selecting the greatest number of betting interests in their correct order of finish for the first half of the Twin Trifecta. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first-, second-, and third-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first- and second-place betting interests. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first- and second-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first-place betting interest only. If there are no wagers selecting the first-place betting interest only in the first half of the Twin Trifecta, all first half tickets will become winners and will receive 100 percent of that day's net Twin Trifecta pool and any existing Twin-Trifecta carryover as a single price pool.

(17) The Twin-Trifecta carryover shall be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance only under the following circumstances:

(a) Upon written approval from the commission as provided in subsection (15) of the Twin Trifecta rules.

(b) Upon written approval from the commission when there is a change in the carryover cap or when the Twin Trifecta is discontinued.

(c) On the closing performance of the meet or split meet.

(18) If, for any reason, the Twin-Trifecta carryover must be held over to the corresponding Twin Trifecta pool of a subsequent meet, the carryover shall be deposited in an interest bearing account approved by the commission. The Twin-Trifecta carryover plus accrued interest shall then be added to the second-half Twin Trifecta pool of the following meet on a date and performance so designated by the commission.

(19) Providing information to any person regarding covered combinations, amounts wagered on specific combinations, number of tickets sold, or number of valid exchange tickets is prohibited. This shall not prohibit necessary communication between totalizator and pari-mutuel department employees for processing of pool data.

(20) The race meet licensee must obtain written approval from the commission concerning the scheduling of Twin Trifecta contests, the percentages of the net pool added to the first half pool and second-half pool, and the amount of any cap to be set on the carryover. Any changes to the approved Twin Trifecta format require prior approval from the commission.

(6) If a winning first half Tri-Superfecta ticket is not presented for cashing and exchange prior to the second-half Tri-Superfecta contest, the ticket holder may still collect the monetary value associated with the first half Tri-Superfecta pool but forfeits all rights to any distribution of the second-half Tri-Superfecta pool.

(7) Should a betting interest in the first half of the Tri-Superfecta be scratched, those Tri-Superfecta tickets including the scratched betting interest shall be refunded.

(8) Should a betting interest in the second-half of the Tri-Superfecta be scratched, an announcement concerning the scratch shall be made and a reasonable amount of time shall be provided for exchange of tickets that include the scratched betting interest. If tickets have not been exchanged prior to the close of betting for the second Tri-Superfecta contest, the ticket holder forfeits all rights to the second-half Tri-Superfecta pool.

(9) If, due to a late scratch, the number of betting interests in the second-half of the Tri-Superfecta is reduced to fewer than the minimum, all exchange tickets and outstanding first half winning tickets shall be entitled to the second-half Tri-Superfecta pool for that contest as a single price pool, but not the Tri-Superfecta carryover.

(10) If there is a dead heat or multiple dead heats in either the first- or second-half of the Tri-Superfecta, all Tri-Superfecta tickets selecting the correct order of finish, counting a betting interest involved in a dead heat as finishing in any dead-heated position, shall be a winner. In the case of a dead heat occurring in

(b) The second-half of the Tri-Superfecta, the payoff shall be calculated as a single price pool.

After the second-half Tri-Superfecta carryover is frozen, 100 percent of the net Tri-Superfecta pool for each individual contest shall be distributed to winners of the first half of the Tri-Superfecta pool.

(14) A written request for permission to distribute the Tri-Superfecta carryover on a specific performance may be submitted to the commission. The request must contain justification for the distribution, an explanation of the benefit to be derived, and the intended date and performance for the distribution.

(15) Should the Tri-Superfecta carryover be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance, the following precedence will be followed in determining winning tickets for the second-half of the Tri-Superfecta after completion of the first half of the Tri-Superfecta:

(a) As a single price pool to those whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first four betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(b) As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first three betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(c) As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first two betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(d) As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first-place betting interest only; but if there are no such wagers; then

(e) As a single price pool to holders of valid exchange tickets;

(f) As a single price pool to holders of outstanding first-half winning tickets.

(16) Contrary to subsection 4 of the Tri-Superfecta rules, during a performance designated to distribute the Tri-Superfecta carryover, exchange tickets will be issued for those combinations selecting the greatest number of betting interests in their correct order of finish for the first half of the Tri-Superfecta. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first-, second-, and third-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first- and second-place betting interests. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first- and second-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first-place betting interest only. If there are no wagers selecting the first-place betting interest only in the first half of the Tri-Superfecta, all first half tickets will become winners and will receive 100 percent of that day's net Tri-Superfecta pool and any existing Tri-Superfecta carryover as a single price pool.

(17) The Tri-Superfecta carryover shall be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance only under the following circumstances:

(a) Upon written approval from the commission as provided in subsection (15) of the Tri-Superfecta rules.

(b) Upon written approval from the commission when there is a change in the carryover cap or when the Tri-Superfecta is discontinued.

(c) On the closing performance of the meet or split meet.

(18) If, for any reason, the Tri-Superfecta carryover must be held over to the corresponding Tri-Superfecta pool of a subsequent meet, the carryover shall be deposited in an interest bearing account approved by the commission. The Tri-Superfecta carryover plus accrued interest shall then be added to the second-half Tri-Superfecta pool of the following meet on a date and performance so designated by the commission.

(19) Providing information to any person regarding covered combinations, amounts wagered on specific combinations, number of tickets sold, or number of valid exchange tickets is prohibited. This shall not prohibit necessary communication between totalizator and pari-mutuel department employees for processing data.

(20) The race meet licensee must obtain written approval from the commission concerning the scheduling of Tri-Superfecta contests, the percentages of the net pool added to the first half pool and second-half pool, and the amount of any cap to be set on the carryover. Any changes to the approved Tri-Superfecta format require prior approval from the commission.

Twin Superfecta Pools

(1) The Twin Superfecta requires selection of the first four finishers, in their exact order, in each of two designated contests. Each winning ticket for the first Twin Superfecta contest must be exchanged for a free ticket on the second Twin Superfecta contest in order to remain eligible for the second-half Twin Superfecta pool. Such tickets may be exchanged only at attended ticket windows prior to the second Twin Superfecta contest. Winning first half Twin Superfecta tickets will receive both an exchange and a monetary payoff. Both of the designated Twin Superfecta contests shall be included in only one Twin Superfecta pool.

(2) After wagering closes for the first half of the Twin Superfecta and commissions have been deducted from the pool, the net pool shall then be divided into two separate pools: the first half Twin Superfecta pool and the second-half Twin Superfecta pool.

(3) In the first Twin Superfecta contest only, winning wagers shall be determined using the following precedence, based upon the official order of finish for the first Twin Superfecta contest:

(a) As a single price pool to those whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first four betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(b) As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first three betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(c) As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first two betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(d) As a single price pool to those whose combination correctly selected the first-place betting interest only; but if there are no such wagers; then

(e) The entire Twin Superfecta pool shall be refunded on Twin Superfecta wagers for that contest and the second-half shall be cancelled.

(4) If no first half Twin Superfecta ticket selects the first four finishers of that contest in exact order, winning ticket holders shall not receive any exchange tickets for the second-half Twin Superfecta pool. In such case, the second-half Twin Superfecta pool shall be retained and added to any existing Twin Superfecta carryover pool.

(5) Winning tickets from the first half of the Twin Superfecta shall be exchanged for tickets selecting the first four finishers of the second-half of the Twin Superfecta. The second-half Twin Superfecta pool shall be distributed to winning wagers in the following precedence, based upon the official order of finish for the second Twin Superfecta contest:

(a) As a single price pool, including any existing carryover monies, to those whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first four betting interests; but if there are no such tickets; then

(b) The entire second-half Twin Trifecta pool for that contest shall be added to any existing carryover monies and retained for the corresponding second-half Twin Superfecta pool of the next performance.

(6) If a winning first half Twin Superfecta ticket is not presented for cashing and exchange prior to the second-half Twin Superfecta contest, the ticket holder may still collect the monetary value associated with the first half Twin Superfecta pool but forfeits all rights to any distribution of the second-half Twin Trifecta pool.

(7) Should a betting interest in the first half of the Twin Superfecta be scratched, those Twin Superfecta tickets including the scratched betting interest shall be refunded.

(8) Should a betting interest in the second-half of the Twin Superfecta be scratched, an announcement concerning the scratch shall be made and a reasonable amount of time shall be provided for exchange of tickets that include the scratched betting interest. If tickets have not been exchanged prior to the close of betting for the second Twin Superfecta contest, the ticket holder forfeits all rights to the second-half Twin Superfecta pool.

(9) If, due to a late scratch, the number of betting interests in the second-half of the Twin Superfecta is reduced to fewer than the minimum, all exchange tickets and outstanding first half winning tickets shall be entitled to the second-half Twin Superfecta pool for that contest as a single price pool, but not the Twin Superfecta carryover.

(10) If there is a dead heat or multiple dead heats in either the first- or second-half of the Twin Superfecta, all Twin Superfecta tickets selecting the correct order of finish, counting a betting interest involved in a dead heat as finishing in any dead-heated position, shall be a winner. In the case of a dead heat occurring in:

(a) The first half of the Twin Superfecta, the payoff shall be calculated as a profit split.

(b) The second-half of the Twin Superfecta, the payoff shall be calculated as a single price pool.

(11) If the either of the Twin Superfecta contests are cancelled prior to the first Twin Superfecta contest, or the first Twin Superfecta contest is declared "no contest," the entire Twin Superfecta pool shall be refunded on Twin Superfecta wagers for that contest and the second-half shall be cancelled.

(12) If the second-half Twin Superfecta contest is cancelled or declared "no contest," all exchange tickets and outstanding first half winning Twin Superfecta tickets shall be entitled to the net Twin Superfecta pool for that contest as a single price pool, but not the Twin Superfecta carryover. If there are no such tickets, the net Twin Superfecta pool shall be distributed as described in subsection (3) of the Twin Superfecta rules.

(13) The Twin-Superfecta carryover may be capped at a designated level approved by the commission so that if, at the close of any performance, the amount in the Twin-Superfecta carryover equals or exceeds the designated cap, the Twin-Superfecta carryover will be frozen until it is won or distributed under other provisions of this rule. After the second-half Twin Superfecta carryover is frozen, 100 percent of the net Twin Superfecta pool for each individual contest shall be distributed to winners of the first half of the Twin Superfecta pool.

(14) A written request for permission to distribute the Twin Superfecta carryover on a specific performance may be submitted to the commission. The request must contain justification for the distribution, an explanation of the benefit to be derived, and the intended date and performance for the distribution.

(15) Should the Twin Superfecta carryover be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance, the following precedence will be followed in determining winning tickets for the second-half of the Twin Superfecta after completion of the first half of the Twin Superfecta:

(a) As a single price pool to those whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first four betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(b) As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first three betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(c) As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first two betting interests; but if there are no such wagers; then

(d) As a single price pool to those whose combination correctly selected the first-place betting interest only; but if there are no such wagers; then

(e) As a single price pool to holders of valid exchange tickets;

(f) As a single price pool to holders of outstanding first half winning tickets.

(16) Contrary to subsection (4) of the Twin Superfecta rules, during a performance designated to distribute the Twin Superfecta carryover, exchange tickets will be issued for those combinations selecting the greatest number of betting interests in their correct order of finish for the first half of the Twin Superfecta. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first-, second-, third-, and fourth-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first-, second-, and third-place betting interests. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first-, second-, and third-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first- and second-place betting interests. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first- and second-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first-place betting interest only. If there are no wagers selecting the first-place betting interest only in the first half of the Twin Superfecta, all first half tickets will become winners and will receive 100 percent of that day's net Twin Superfecta pool and any existing Twin Superfecta carryover as a single price pool.

(17) The Twin Superfecta carryover shall be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance only under the following circumstances:

(a) Upon written approval from the commission as provided in subsection (15) of the Twin Superfecta rules.

(b) Upon written approval from the commission when there is a change in the carryover cap or when the Twin Superfecta is discontinued.

(c) On the closing performance of the meet or split meet.

(18) If, for any reason, the Twin Superfecta carryover must be held over to the corresponding Twin Superfecta pool of a subsequent meet, the carryover shall be deposited in an interest bearing account approved by the commission. The Twin Superfecta carryover plus accrued interest shall then be added to the second-half Twin Superfecta pool of the following meet on a date and performance so designated by the commission.

(19) Providing information to any person regarding covered combinations, amounts wagered on specific combinations, number of tickets sold, or number of valid exchange tickets is prohibited. This shall not prohibit necessary communication between totalizator and pari-mutuel department employees for processing of pool data.

(20) The race meet licensee must obtain written approval from the commission concerning the scheduling of Twin Superfecta contests, the percentages of the net pool added to the first half pool and second-half pool, and the amount of any cap to be set on the carryover. Any changes to the approved Twin Superfecta format require prior approval from the commission.

Place Pic (n) Pools

(1) The Place Pic (n) requires selection of the first or second-place finisher in each of a designated number of contests. The race meet licensee must obtain written approval from the commission concerning the scheduling of Place Pic (n) contests, the designation of one of the methods prescribed in Part (2), the distinctive name identifying the pool and the amount of any cap to be set on the carryover. Any changes to the approved Place Pic (n) format require prior approval from the commission.

(2) The Place Pic (n) pool shall be apportioned under one of the following methods:

(a) Method 1, Place Pic (n) with Carryover: The net Place Pic (n) pool and carryover, if any, shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in each of the Place Pic (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no such wagers, then a designated percentage of the net pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in the greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests; and the remainder shall be added to the carryover.

(b) Method 2, Place Pic (n) with Minor Pool and Carryover: The major share of the net Place Pic (n) pool and carryover, if any, shall be distributed to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in each of the Place Pic (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. The minor share of the net Place Pic (n) pool shall be distributed to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in the second greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no wagers selecting the first or second-place finisher of all Place Pic (n) contests, the minor share of the net Place Pic (n) shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in the greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests; and the major share shall be added to the carryover.

(c) Method 3, Place Pic (n) with No Minor Pool and No Carryover: The net Place Pic (n) pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in the greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no winning wagers, the pool is refunded.

(d) Method 4, Place Pic (n) with Minor Pool and No Carryover: The major share of the net Place Pic (n) pool shall be distributed to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in the greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. The minor share of the net Place Pic (n) pool shall be distributed to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in the second greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no such wagers selecting the first or second-place finisher in a second greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests, the minor share of the net Place Pic (n) pool shall be combined with the major share for distribution as a single price pool to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in the greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests. If the greatest number of first or second-place finishers selected is one (1), the major and minor shares are combined for distribution as a single price pool. If there are no winning wagers, the pool is refunded.

(e) Method 5, Place Pic (n) with Minor Pool and No Carryover: The major share of net Place Pic (n) pool shall be distributed to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in each of the Place Pic (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. The minor share of the net Place Pic (n) pool shall be distributed to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in the second greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no wagers selecting the first or second-place finisher in all Place Pic (n) contests, the entire net Place Pic (n) pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in the greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests. If there are no wagers selecting the first or second-place finisher in a second greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests, the minor share of the net Place Pic (n) pool shall be combined with the major share for distribution as a single price pool to those who selected the first or second-place finisher in each of the Place Pic (n) contests. If there are no winning wagers, the pool is refunded.

(3) If there is a dead heat for first in any of the Place Pic (n) contests involving:

(a) Contestants representing the same betting interest, the Place Pic (n) pool shall be distributed as if no dead heat occurred.

(b) Contestants representing two or more betting interests, the Place Pic (n) pool shall be distributed as a single price pool with a winning wager including each betting interest participating in the dead heat.

(4) If there is a dead heat for second in any of the Place Pic (n) contests involving:

(a) Contestants representing the same betting interest, the Place Pic (n) pool shall be distributed as if no dead heat occurred.

(b) Contestants representing two or more betting interests, the Place Pic (n) pool shall be distributed as a single price pool with a winning wager including the betting interest which finished first or any betting interest involved in the dead heat for second.

(5) Should a betting interest in any of the Place Pic (n) contests be scratched, the actual favorite, as evidenced by total amounts wagered in the Win pool at the host race meet licensee for the contest at the closing of wagering on that contest, shall be substituted for the scratched betting interest for all purposes, including pool calculations. In the event that the Win pool total for two or more favorites is identical, the substitute selection shall be the betting interest with the lowest program number. The totalizator shall produce reports showing each of the wagering combinations with substituted betting interests which became winners as a result of the substitution, in addition to the normal winning combination.

(6) The Place Pic (n) pool shall be cancelled and all Place Pic (n) wagers for the individual performance shall be refunded if:

(a) At least two contests included as part of a Place Pic 3 are cancelled or declared "no contest."

(b) At least three contests included as part of a Place Pic 4, Place Pic 5 or Place Pic 6 are cancelled or declared "no contest."

(c) At least four contests included as part of a Place Pic 7, Place Pic 8 or Place Pic 9 are cancelled or declared "no contest."

(d) At least five contests included as part of a Place Pic 10 are cancelled or declared "no contest."

(7) If at least one contest included as part of a Place Pic (n) is cancelled or declared "no contest," but not more than the number described in subsection (6) of this rule, the net pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those whose selection finished first or second in the greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests for that performance. Such distribution shall include the portion ordinarily retained for the Place Pic (n) carryover but not the carryover from previous performances.

(8) The Place Pic (n) carryover may be capped at a designated level approved by the commission so that if, at the close of any performance, the amount in the Place Pic (n) carryover equals or exceeds the designated cap, the Place Pic (n) carryover will be frozen until it is won or distributed under the provision of this rule. After the Place Pic (n) carryover is frozen, 100 percent of the net pool, part of which ordinarily would be added to the Place Pic (n) carryover, shall be distributed to those whose selection finished first or second in the greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests for that performance.

The request must contain justification for the distribution, an explanation of the benefit derived, and the intended date and performance for the distribution.

(10) Should the Place Pic (n) carryover be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance in which there are no wagers selecting the first or second-place finisher in each of the Place Pic (n) contests, the entire pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selection first or second in the greatest number of Place Pic (n) contests. The Place Pic (n) carryover shall be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance under any of the following circumstances:

(a) Upon written approval from the commission as provided in subsection (9) of this rule.

(b) Upon written approval from the commission when there is a change in the carryover cap, a change from one type of Place Pic (n) wagering to another, or when the Place Pic (n) is discontinued.

(11) If, for any reason, the Place Pic (n) carryover must be held over to the corresponding Place Pic (n) of a subsequent meet, the carryover shall be deposited in an interest-bearing account approved by the commission. The Place Pic (n) carryover plus accrued interest shall then be added to the net Place Pic (n) pool of the following meet on a date and performance so designated by the commission.

(12) With the written approval of the commission, the race meet licensee may contribute to the Place Pic (n) carryover a sum of money up to the amount of the designated cap.

(13) Providing information to any person regarding covered combinations, amounts wagered on specific combinations, number of tickets sold, or number of live tickets remaining is strictly prohibited. This shall not prohibit necessary communication between totalizator and pari-mutuel department employees for processing of pool data.

(14) The race meet licensee may suspend previously-approved Place Pic (n) wagering with the prior approval of the commission. Any carryover shall be held until the suspended Place Pic (n) wagering is reinstated. An race meet licensee may request approval of a Place Pic (n) wager or separate wagering pool for specific performances.

Show Pick N with Unique Ticket Jackpot

(1) The Show Pick N with Unique Ticket Jackpot (hereinafter “Jackpot”) is a multi race mutuel wager consisting of a minimum of five (5) Jackpot races. Contests selected may include races from multiple race tracks. The official order of finish as posted shall determine the race outcome for purposes of this wager. The licensee offering the wager must obtain written approval from the Commission concerning the scheduling of Jackpot contests. Any changes to the approved Jackpot format require prior approval from the Commission.

(2) Wagers placed on the Jackpot shall be placed into two separate pools.

(a) Major Pool. The major pool shall receive 80% of the total amount wagered, subject to applicable takeout. The major pool shall be distributed to those selecting the first, second or third place finisher in all of the Jackpot contests (Show Pick All). There is no carryover for the major pool. If there are no tickets correctly selecting a first, second or third place finisher in all of the Jackpot contests, the pool shall be distributed to those who selected a first, second or third place finisher in the greatest number of contests.

(b) Minor Pool. The minor pool shall receive 20% of the total amount wagered, subject to allowable takeout. The minor pool shall be distributed to the holder of a “Unique” ticket that selected the first place finisher in all of the Jackpot races. A “Unique” winning ticket shall exist when the total amount wagered on a winning combination selecting the first place finisher in each of the selected Jackpot races is equal to the minimum allowable wager. (e.g. 20 cents if the base wager is $1.00) If there is not a “Unique” ticket for the minor pool, the net amount in the pool shall be added (carried over) to the minor pool offered at the next scheduled Jackpot event. A single ticket holder possessing multiple winning tickets, even if they are the only winning tickets, will not be deemed to have a “Unique” ticket and the Jackpot shall carryover as prescribed in these rules.

(3) If there is a dead heat for first in any of the Jackpot contests then such dead heated betting interest will be considered winners for Jackpot purposes. Any tickets including dead heat winners will be considered separate tickets for the purposes of identifying unique tickets for the Jackpot pool.

(4) If any betting interest is scratched, excused or determined to be a non-starter after the wager has been placed in the Jackpot, the actual favorite, as evidenced by the total amounts wagered in the Win pool at the host race meet licensee for the contest at the close of wagering for that contest, shall be substituted for the scratched betting interest for all purposes. In the event that the Win pool total for two or more favorites is identical, the substitute selection shall be the favorite betting interest with the lowest program number.

(5) If there is a scratch after the first race in the Jackpot, the betting favorite as determined by the host track’s win pool will be substituted for the scratched betting interest. Any tickets including both the scratched betting interest and the betting favorite will be considered two separate, non-unique tickets for the purposes of identifying unique tickets for the Jackpot pool.

(6) The Jackpot pool shall be cancelled and all Jackpot wagers for the individual event shall be refunded if:

(a) If one or more races included in the Jackpot sequence is cancelled or declared "no contest”.

(b) If any of the races in the Jackpot scheduled after the first leg end up being priced and made official prior to the first leg in the Jackpot being priced and made official.

(7) Mandatory payout days: After the Jackpot carryover (Minor Pool) pool reaches $500,000; the next Jackpot event will require a mandatory payout.

(8) When the Jackpot converts to a mandatory payout, the wager will convert to a traditional Pick 5 wager with no unique ticket provision nor any Show Pick All payout. The Jackpot pool will be distributed to the tickets selecting the winner in the greatest number of contests. In the rare occurrence that no tickets contained a winning betting interest, the wagering for that event will be refunded and the mandatory payout will carry over to the next Jackpot event.

(9) If any of the races in the Jackpot has a surface change (For example: a race switches from Turf to Dirt), the selections and results for that race remain regardless of whether the surface change occurs before or after the first race in the Jackpot.

One "point" will be awarded for each successful selection in each of the designated contests. The race meet licensee must obtain written approval from the commission concerning the scheduling of 1-2-3 Pick N contests, the designation of one of the methods prescribed in Part (3), the distinctive name identifying the pool and the amount of any cap to be set on the carryover. Any changes to the approved 1-2-3 Pick N format require prior approval from the commission.

(3) The 1-2-3 Pick N pool shall be apportioned under one of the following methods:

(a) Method 1, 1-2-3 Pick N with Carryover: The net 1-2-3 Pick N pool and carryover, if any, shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who amass the maximum number of points achievable in the 1-2-3 Pick N contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no such wagers, then a designated percentage of the net pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who amass the greatest number of points in the 1-2-3 Pick N contests; and the remainder shall be added to the carryover.

(b) Method 2, 1-2-3 Pick N with Minor Pool: The race meet licensee shall determine the number of Minor Pools, with prior approval from the commission. The major share of the net 1-2-3 Pick N pool shall be distributed to those who amass the greatest number of points in the 1-2-3 Pick N contests, based upon the official order of finish. The minor share(s) of the net 1-2-3 Pick N pool shall be distributed to those who amass the next greatest number of points of 1-2-3 Pick N contests, based upon the official order of finish, and so on until the approved number of Minor Pools has been reached.

(4) If there is a dead heat for any position in any of the 1-2-3 Pick N contests, the 1-2-3 Pick N pool shall be distributed as a winning wager including each betting interest participating in the dead heat.

(5) Should a betting interest in any of the 1-2-3 Pick N contests be scratched, the actual favorite, as evidenced by total amounts wagered in the Win pool at the host race meet licensee for the contest at the closing of wagering on that contest, shall be substituted for the scratched betting interest for all purposes, including pool calculations. In the event that the Win pool total for two or more favorites is identical, the substitute selection shall be the betting interest with the lowest program number. The totalizator shall produce reports showing each of the wagering combinations with substituted betting interests which became winners as a result of the substitution, in addition to the normal winning combination.

(6) The 1-2-3 Pick N pool shall be cancelled and all 1-2-3 Pick N wagers for the individual 1-2-3 Pick N pool shall be refunded if:

(a) At least two contests included as part of a 1-2-3 Pick N with 3 contests are cancelled or declared "no contest."

(b) At least three contests included as part of a 1-2-3 Pick N with 4, 5 or 6 contests are cancelled or declared "no contest."

(c) At least four contests included as part of a 1-2-3 Pick N with 7, 8 or 9 contests are cancelled or declared "no contest."

(d) 50% or more of the total contests included as part of a 1-2-3 Pick N with 10 or more contests are cancelled or declared "no contest."

(7) If at least one contest included as part of a 1-2-3 Pick N is cancelled or declared "no contest," but not more than the number described in subsection (6) of this rule, the net pool shall be distributed in accordance with subsection (3) of this rule. Such distribution shall include the portion ordinarily retained for the 1-2-3 Pick N carryover but not the carryover from previous performances.

(8) A written request for permission to distribute the 1-2-3 Pick N carryover on a specific performance may be submitted to the commission. The request must contain justification for the distribution, an explanation of the benefit derived, and the intended date and performance for the distribution.

(9) Should the 1-2-3 Pick N carryover be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance in which no one amasses the maximum number of points achievable in the 1-2-3 Pick N contests, the entire pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who amass the greatest number of points in the 1-2-3 Pick N contests. The 1-2-3 Pick N carryover shall be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance under any of the following circumstances:

(a) Upon written approval from the commission as provided in subsection (8) of this rule.

(b) Upon written approval from the commission when the 1-2-3 Pick N wager is discontinued.

(10) If, for any reason, the 1-2-3 Pick N carryover must be held over to the corresponding 1-2-3 Pick N of a subsequent meet, the carryover shall be deposited in an interest-bearing account approved by the commission. The 1-2-3 Pick N carryover plus accrued interest shall then be added to the net 1-2-3 Pick N pool of the following meet on a date and performance so designated by the commission.

(11) With the written approval of the commission, the race meet licensee may contribute to the 1-2-3 Pick N carryover a sum of money.

(12) Providing information to any person regarding covered combinations, amounts wagered on specific combinations, number of tickets sold, or number of live tickets remaining is strictly prohibited. This shall not prohibit necessary communication between totalizator and pari-mutuel department employees for processing of pool data.

(13) The race meet licensee may suspend previously-approved 1-2-3 Pick N wagering with the prior approval of the commission. Any carryover shall be distributed in accordance with subsection (8) of this rule, or held until the suspended 1-2-3 Pick N wagering is reinstated. A race meet licensee may request approval of a 1-2-3 Pick N wager or separate wagering pool for specific performances.

(14) Interpretation:

(a) 1-2-3 Pick N shall be considered a form of interstate simulcast wagering.

(b) In the event of any inconsistency between the provisions of this rule regarding 1-2-3 Pick N and the provisions of any other rule, the provisions of this rule shall control.

Choose (n) Rules

(1) The Choose (n) is a form of pari-mutuel wagering. Each bettor attempts to select the winner of (n) races but chooses the races at his own discretion from a group of races established by the licensee instead of having the races designated for him by the licensee. The races need not be consecutive and the ticket's first race may begin at any time provided that there are an equal number of races left within the designated group to meet the necessary number of races for the wager. The licensee must obtain written approval from the Commission concerning the scheduling of Choose (n) contests and the amount of any cap to be set on the carryover. Any changes to the approved Choose (n) format require prior approval from the Commission.

(2) The Choose (n) pool shall be held separately from all other pools and is in no way part of a daily double, exacta, trifecta or any other wagering pool. The Choose (n) is a pool wherein the bettor is required to select any (n) winning horses from that particular group of races and is not a parlay.

(3) Choose (n) tickets shall be sold in denominations as determined by the licensee. No less than or no more than the (n) races will comprise a Choose (n) ticket.

(4) Races in which Choose (n) wagering is permitted shall be approved by the Commission. Some races may be closed to Choose (n) wagering at the discretion of the licensee. The Choose (n) pool shall close after each race but shall reopen with respect to subsequent races that have not yet been run provided that there are at least as many races remaining as required to be selected on a winning Choose (n) ticket.

(5) The design of the Choose (n) tickets shall be clearly and immediately distinguishable from other pari-mutuel tickets.

(6) Those horses constituting an entry or field, as defined within the rules and regulations of the Commission, shall race in any Choose (n) race as a single wagering interest for purposes of the Choose (n) pool calculations. A scratch after wagering has begun of any part of the entry or field selection in a race shall be of no effect with respect to the status of such entry and/or field as a viable wagering interest.

(7) At any time after wagering begins on the Choose (n), should a horse, entire betting entry or field be scratched or declared a non-starter in any Choose (n) race, no further tickets selecting such horses, entry or field shall be issued, and wagers upon such horse, entry or field for purposes of the Choose (n) shall be deemed wagers upon the horse, entry or field on which the most money has been wagered in the win pool at the close of win betting for such race. In the event of a tie, the horse, entry or field with the lowest program number shall be designated.

(8) In the event of a dead heat for win between two or more horses in any of the Choose (n) races, all such horses shall be considered as the winning horse for the purpose of distributing the Choose (n) pool.

(9) The Choose (n) pool shall be calculated as follows:

(a) 100% of the net amount in the Choose (n) pool subject to distribution among winning ticket holders shall be distributed among holders of Choose (n) tickets which have correctly selected the winner of the (n) races comprising the Choose (n).

(b) In the event there is no Choose (n) ticket which correctly designates the winner of the (n) winners that make up the Choose (n), 25% of that racing date's net amount available for distribution shall be distributed among the holders of Choose (n) tickets correctly designating the most winning selections of the races that comprise the Choose (n), and the remaining 75% of said pool shall be carried over and added to the pool on the next day that the wager is conducted.

(c) If, on the last day on which the Choose (n) is conducted at a horse race meeting, no one selects the winning horse in (n) races, the total amount of the Choose (n) pool which exists on that day shall be paid to the bettor or bettors selecting the largest number of winning horses in those races. In no event shall any part of the pool be carried over to the next year's race meeting.

(10) When the condition of the turf course warrants a change of racing surface in any of the races open to Choose (n) wagering, and such change has not been made known to the betting public prior to the close of wagering for the first Choose (n) race, the Stewards shall declare the changed races a "no contest" for Choose (n) wagering purposes and the pool shall be distributed in accordance with subsection (11). Following the designation of a race as a "no contest", no tickets shall be sold selecting a horse in such "no contest" race.

(11) If, for any reason, one or more races are cancelled or declared a "no contest", the Choose (n) pool shall be paid using the following formula, or an alternative formula developed by the licensee and made available to the public (the following formula assumes a Choose 6 pool):

(a) Any race that has been cancelled or declared a "no contest" shall not be considered a contested race for Choose 6 purposes.

(b) Any ticket, regardless of its starting point, that has not completed at least four contested legs will be refunded.

(c) In the event that only 4 Choose 6 races have been contested: 100% of that day's net pool (not including any carryover), after refunds (the "Daily Pool"), shall be paid to tickets with 4 wins.

(d) In the event that only 5 Choose 6 races have been contested: 75% of the Daily Pool shall be paid to tickets with 5 wins and 25% of the Daily Pool shall be paid to tickets with 4 wins, no losses, and selections in two non-contested races.

(e) In the event that at least 6 races have been contested for the Choose 6 and two or more races have not been contested: 75% of the Daily Pool plus any carryover shall be paid to tickets with 6 wins, 18.75% of the Daily Pool to tickets with 5 wins and a selection in a non-contested race, and 6.25% of the Daily Pool to tickets with 4 wins and selections in two non-contested races. If no ticket has 6 wins, 50% of the Daily Pool shall be paid to tickets with 5 wins and a selection in a non-contested race, 25% of the Daily Pool to tickets with 4 wins and selections in two non-contested races, and 25% of the Daily Pool to tickets with 5 wins and 1 loss.

(f) In the event that at least 6 races have been contested for the Choose 6 and one race has not been contested: 75% of the Daily Pool plus any carryover shall be paid to tickets with 6 wins and 25% of the Daily Pool to tickets with 5 wins and a selection in the non-contested race. If no ticket has 6 wins, 75% of the Daily Pool shall be paid to tickets with 5 wins and a selection in the non-contested race and 25% of the Daily Pool to tickets with 5 wins and 1 loss.

(g) In the event that there is no payable ticket in a category within any of these subsections, that portion of the Daily Pool will be divided equally between the other categories within that subsection. In the event that there is no payable ticket within a subsection, the entire Daily Pool shall be carried over and added to the pool on the next day that wagering is conducted.

(12) The Choose (n) carryover may be capped at a designated level approved by the Commission so that if, at the close of any day of designated races, the amount in the Choose (n) carryover equals or exceeds the designated cap, the Choose (n) carryover will be frozen until it is won or distributed under other provisions of this rule. After the Choose (n) carryover is frozen, 100 percent of the net pool, part of which ordinarily would be added to the Choose (n) carryover, shall be distributed to those whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Choose (n) contests for that day of designated races.

(13) A written request for permission to distribute the Choose (n) carryover on a specific day of designated races may be submitted to the Commission. The request must contain justification for the distribution, an explanation of the benefit to be derived, and the intended date and day of designated races for the distribution.

(14) Should the Choose (n) carryover be designated for distribution on a specified date and day of designated races in which there are no wagers with (n) wins, the entire pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Choose (n) contests. The Choose (n) carryover shall be designated for distribution on a specified date and day of designated races only under the following circumstances:

(a) Upon written approval from the Commission as provided in subsection (n) of this rule.

(b) Upon written approval from the Commission when there is a change in the carryover cap, a change from one type of Choose (n) wagering to another, or when the Choose (n) is discontinued.

(c) On the closing day of the designated races.

(15) If, for any reason, the Choose (n) carryover must be held over to the corresponding Choose (n) pool of a future group of designated races, the carryover shall be deposited in an interest-bearing account approved by the Commission. The Choose (n) carryover plus accrued interest shall then be added to the net Choose (n) pool of the day's group of designated races so designated by the Commission.

(16) With the written approval of the Commission, the association may contribute to the Choose (n) carryover a sum of money up to the amount of any designated cap.

(17) Providing information to any an individual regarding covered combinations, amounts wagered on specific combinations, number of tickets sold, or number of live tickets remaining is strictly prohibited. This shall not prohibit necessary communication between totalisator and pari-mutuel department employees for processing of pool data. The licensee shall be permitted to provide information regarding number of tickets sold and number of live tickets remaining to the wagering public.

(18) The licensee may suspend previously approved Choose (n) wagering with the prior approval of the Commission. Any carryover shall be held until the suspended Choose (n) wagering is reinstated. A licensee may request approval of a Choose (n) wager or separate wagering pool for specific performances.

(19) Should circumstances occur which are not addressed by these rules, questions arising thereby shall be resolved in accordance with general pari-mutuel practice. Decisions regarding distribution of the Choose (n) pool made by the Executive Director or his/her designee shall be final.
