Rule No.Rule Title
1957Daily Double.
Rule Text(a) The Daily Double is a separate pari-mutuel pool established on two (2) races. The pool consists of amounts wagered on the selection of the winning horse of both races. It is not a parlay and has no connection with or relation to other pools conducted by the association or to rules governing the distribution of other pools. (b) A valid Daily Double ticket shall be evidence of a binding contract between the holder of the ticket and the association and shall constitute an acceptance of Daily Double provisions and rules contained in this Article. (c) The association shall distribute the net pool to holders of valid tickets that correctly selected the winner of both races. If no ticket selected the winner of both races, the net pool shall be distributed as a place pool among tickets that included the winner of the first race and tickets that included the winner of the second race. (d) If no ticket included the winner of the first race the net pool shall be distributed equally among tickets that included the winner of the second race; and, if no ticket included the winner of the second race the net pool shall be distributed equally among tickets that included the winner of the first race. (e) If no ticket included the winner of either race, the net pool shall be distributed equally among tickets selecting the second place finishers of both races. (f) The association shall refund the entire pool if no ticket requires a payout or if the first race is cancelled. (g) If the second race is cancelled after the first race has been completed, the net pool shall be distributed as a single price pool among tickets selecting the winner of the first race. (h) Before the first race is run, any money wagered on a horse in either race that is scratched, excused by the stewards prevented from racing or is designated to run for purse only in accordance with Rule 1974 of this article shall be deducted from the pool and refunded. (i) If, after the first race is completed, any horse is scratched, excused by the stewards or prevented from racing because of the failure of the stall doors of the starting gate to open in the second race, or designated to run in the second race for purse only in accordance with Rule 1974 of this article, all tickets including such horse(s) shall be deducted from the pool, and the pool(s), thus formed shall be distributed as a straight pool(s) among tickets combining the winner of the first race with such horse(s). (j) If a dead heat occurs in either race the net pool is figured as a place pool. Example: Number eight (8) and five (5) dead heat in the first race, and number three (3) wins the second race, the pool would be divided and apportioned to tickets bearing eight (8) and three (3), and five (5) and three (3).
