|1959||Special Quinella (Exacta).|
|Rule Text||(a) The Special Quinella is not a parlay and has no connection with or relation to the win, place and show pools shown on the totalizator board. All tickets on the Special Quinella will be calculated in a separate pari-mutuel pool.
(b) A Special Quinella race shall be given a distinctive name to be selected by the association conducting such race, such as "Perfecta" or "Exacta," subject to the approval of the Board.
(c) All Special Quinella tickets will be for the win and place combination only. Each person purchasing a Special Quinella ticket shall designate the exact order in which the first two horses will finish in a Special Quinella race. For example, if number 3 is selected to finish first and number 6 is selected to finish second, they must come in number 3, first and number 6 second in order to win.
(d) Should any horse or horses entered in a Special Quinella race be scratched or excused by the stewards after wagering has commenced or should any horse or horses be prevented from racing because of the failure of the stall doors of the starting gate to open, or if a horse is designated to run for purse only in accordance with Rule 1974 of this article, all tickets including such horse or horses shall be deducted from the Special Quinella Pool and money refunded to the purchasers of tickets on the horse or horses so designated, excused or prevented from racing.
(e) In the event that no ticket is sold on the winning combination of a Special Quinella Pool, the net pool shall be distributed equally among holders of tickets selecting the winning horse to finish first and holders of tickets selecting the second place horse to finish second.
(f) In the event of a dead-heat between two horses for first place, the net pool shall be calculated and distributed as a place pool to holders of the winning combinations.
(g) In the event of a dead-heat for second place, if no ticket is sold on one of the two winning combinations, the entire net pool shall be calculated as a win pool and distributed to those holding tickets on the other winning combinations. If no tickets combine the winning horse with either of the place horses in the dead-heat the Special Quinella Pool shall be calculated and distributed to holders of tickets designating the winning horse or either of the place horses according to their respective interest in the net pool.
(h) In the event of a dead-heat among three or more horses for first place, the net pool shall be calculated and distributed to holders of tickets designating any two of the horses participating in the dead-heat according to their respective interest in the net pool.
(i) In the event that no ticket is sold that would require distribution to any winner as above defined the Special Quinella shall be deemed "No Contest" and all money in the Special Quinella shall be promptly refunded.
