Turfway Park Wagering Rules

 
Pick 3 | Pick 4 | Pick 5 | Trifecta | Superfecta


Pick 3
Scratches
  1. If a scratch occurs before the running of the first leg, refunds will be given for all combinations that include the scratched horse(s).
     
  2. If a scratch occurs after the running of the first leg, a consolation (instead of a substitute favorite) will be given to bettors who have the scratched horse and hit the other legs.

Race Cancellations
  1. If any leg is canceled or declared non-betting before the start of the first leg, the pool shall be refunded.
     
  2. If either the second or third leg is canceled or declared non-betting after the start of the first leg, payoffs will be determined on the basis of contested legs.

Pick 4
Scratches
In the event a Pick 4 ticket designates a selection in one or more races comprising the Pick 4 and that selection is scratched, excused or determined by the stewards to be a non-starter in a race, the actual favorite, as evidenced by the amounts wagered in the final win pool of the race, will be substituted for the non-starting selection for all purposes, including pool calculations and payoffs. In the event the win pool total for two or more favorites is identical, the substitute selection shall be the betting interest with the lowest program number.

Race Cancellations
  1. If for any reason three or more races comprising the Pick 4 are canceled, a full and complete refund will be made of the Pick 4 pool.
     
  2. If for any reason one of the races comprising the Pick 4 is canceled, the net amount of the pari-mutuel pool shall be distributed as three out of four. If three or more races of the Pick 4 are canceled a full and complete refund will be made of the Pick 4 pool.

Pick 5
Scratches
At any time after wagering has begun on the Pick-5 and a betting interest is scratched, or declared a non-starter, the actual favorite, as evidenced by total amounts wagered in the win pool at the host association for the race at the close of wagering on that race, shall be substituted for the scratched betting interest for all purposes, including pool calculations.
  1. 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.

  2. The totalizator shall produce reports showing each of the winning combinations with substituted betting interests that became winners as a result of the substitution, in addition to the normal winning combination.

  3. Pick 5 wagers on a Mutuel entry or Mutuel field from which a starter or starters may have been scratched shall be wagers upon the horse or horses remaining in such entry or field.

  4. If no starter remains representing any Mutuel entry or Mutuel field, wagers upon such entry or field shall be deemed wagers upon the favorite as described in subsection (4) of this section.

  5. If a betting interest is scratched or declared a non-starter prior to the close of wagering of the first race of the Pick 5, individuals may:
a. Select another betting interest if the affected ticket can be cancelled and re-issued prior to the start of the first race of the Pick 5; or

b. Obtain a refund on the affected ticket if it can be processed prior to the start of the first race of the Pick 5.

Race Cancellations
  1. If at least one race included as part of a Pick 5 is cancelled or declared "no contest," but not more than the number specified in subsection 7, below, of this section, the net pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to individuals whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Pick 5 races for that performance. Such distribution shall include the portion ordinarily retained for the Pick 5 carryover, but not the carryover from previous performances.

  2. (Subsection 7) The Pick 5 pool shall be cancelled and all Pick 5 wagers for the individual performance shall be refunded if at least two (2) races included as part of the Pick-5 are cancelled or declared "no contest."

Trifecta
