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.

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.

  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

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."
     

Single 6 Jackpot with Unique Carryover

  1. The Pick-6 requires the selection of the first-place finisher in each of six specified races designated by the association and approved by the commission. Any changes to the Pick-6 format shall be approved by the commission before implementation.
     
  2. The Pick-6 pari-mutuel pool consists of amounts contributed for a win only selection in each of six (6) races designated by the association. Each individual placing a Pick-6 wager shall designate the winning horse in each of six (6) races comprising the Pick-6.
     
  3. (a) The entire net Pick-6 pool and the Unique Carryover, if any, shall be distributed only if there is a single wager placed for the required bet minimum that selected the first-place finisher in each of the Pick-6 contests, based upon the official order of finish. (b) If there is no single winning wager as defined in section (a), a percentage that has been declared by the Association and approved by KHRC of the net Pick-6 pool for that day shall be distributed as a single price pool as defined below, and the remaining percentage (jackpot share) of the net Pick-6 pool shall be added to the Unique Carryover.
     
  4. The net Pick-6 pool shall be distributed based upon the official order of finish as a single price pool to individuals whose selection finished first in each of the six races, but if there are no such wagers, then; the entire net Pick-6 pool shall be added to the Unique Carryover.
     
  5. If for any reason one or two of the races comprising the Pick-6 is cancelled, the net amount of the pari-mutuel pool for that day shall be distributed as a single price pool to individuals whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Pick-6 races for that performance. The distribution shall include the portion ordinarily retained for the Pick-6 carryover, except not the carryover from previous performances.
     
  6. If for any reason three or more races comprising the Pick-6 are cancelled, the entire pool shall be refunded on Pick-6 wagers for those races.
     
  7. When the condition of the turf course warrants a change of racing surface in any races of the Pick-6, and such change has not been disclosed to the public prior to “off time” of the first race of the Pick-6, the stewards shall declare the changed races an “all win” race for Pick-6 wagering purposes only. An “all win” race will assign the winner of that race to each Pick-6 ticket holder as their selection for that race. In the event there are two or more races comprising the Pick-6 that are declared “all win,” any Unique Carryover and any guaranteed monies shall be removed from that day’s calculation. 
     
  8. (a) If there is a dead heat for first in any Pick-6 race involving horses representing the same betting interest, the Pick-6 pool shall be distributed as if no dead heat occurred. (b) If there is a dead heat for first in any Pick-6 race involving horses representing two or more betting interests, the Pick-6 pool shall be distributed as a single price pool with each winning wager receiving an equal share of the profit.
     
  9. Should a betting interest in any of the Pick-6 races be scratched, excused, or determined by the stewards to be a non-starter in a race, 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. (a) 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. (b) 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.
     
  10. The Pick-6 pool shall be cancelled and all Pick-6 wagers for the individual performance shall be refunded if at least three races included as part of a Pick-6 are cancelled or declared “no contest.”
     
  11. (a) Each association shall disclose in its license application whether it intends to schedule Pick-6 races and, if so, shall disclose: 1. The percentage of the pool to be retained for the winning wagers, and 2. The designated amount of any cap to be set on the pool to be retained for the winning wagers. (b) Any changes to the Pick-6 scheduling require prior approval from the commission or its designee.
     
  12. (a) The Unique Pick-6 carryover, if any, may be capped at a designated level approved by the commission so that if, at the close of any performance, the amount in the Unique Pick-6 carryover equals or exceeds the designated cap, the Unique Pick-6 carryover will be frozen until it is won or distributed under the provisions of this administrative regulation. (b) After the Unique Pick-6 carryover is frozen, one hundred percent (100%) of the net pool, part of which ordinarily would be added to the Unique Pick-6 carryover, shall be distributed to individuals whose selections finished first in the greatest number of Pick-6 races for that performance.
     
  13. An association may request permission from the commission to distribute all of the Unique Pick-6 carryover or a portion of the Unique Pick-6 carryover on a specific performance. The request shall contain justification for the distribution, an explanation of the benefit to be derived, and the intended date and performance for the distribution.
     
  14. If the Unique Pick-6 carryover or a portion of the Unique Pick-6 carryover, is designated for distribution on a specified date and performance, and no wagers correctly select the first-place finisher in each of the Pick-6 races, the entire net pool plus the Unique Pick-6 carryover designated for distribution on that date shall be distributed as a single price pool to individuals whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Pick-6 races.
     
  15. The Unique Pick-6 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 section; or (b) Upon written approval from the commission when there is a change in the carryover cap; or (c) A change from Pick-6 wagering to another type of Pick-(N) wagering; or (d) When the Pick-6 is discontinued; or (e) On the closing performance of the meeting or split meeting.
     
  16. If, for any reason, the Unique Pick-6 carryover shall be held over to the corresponding Unique Pick-6 pool of a subsequent meeting, the carryover shall be deposited in an interest-bearing account approved by the commission. The Unique Pick-6 carryover plus accrued interest shall then be added to the net Pick-6 pool of the following meeting on a date and performance approved by the commission.
     
  17. Upon written approval of the commission, a sum of money up to the amount of any designated cap may be contributed to the Pick-6 carryover by an association.
     
  18. Upon written approval of the commission, the Association may seed the Unique carryover and may recover the amount seeded by subtracting funds from each day’s unique carryover until the amount seeded has been recovered.
     
  19. The association may supply information to the general public regarding the winning dollars in the Pick-6 pool. Such information shall not be selectively distributed. This shall not prohibit necessary communication between totalizator and pari-mutuel department employees for processing of pool data.
     
  20. In the Unique Pick-6, if a single patron ends up with the only winning ticket but has more than one winning wager on that ticket, regardless of how it occurred, that patron will not be eligible for the Unique Pick-6 Jackpot carryover.
