Rule No.Rule Title
1977Pick Three.
Rule Text(a) The Pick Three is a separate pari-mutuel pool established on three consecutive races. The pool consists of amounts wagered on the winning horse in each of the 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 Pick Three ticket shall be evidence of a binding contract between the holder of the ticket and the association and shall constitute an acceptance of Pick Three provisions and rules contained in this article. (c) The association shall distribute the net pool to holders of valid tickets that correctly selected the winners in all three races. (d) In a dead heat for win between two or more horses in any of the Pick Three races, all such horses shall be considered winning horses in that race for calculating the pool. The payout shall reflect the proportionate amount of money wagered on each winning combination. (e) If no ticket selected the winner in all three races, the net pool shall be paid for tickets that selected the winner in any two races; and if no ticket selected two winners the net pool shall be paid for tickets that selected the winner of any one race. The association shall refund the entire pool if no ticket selected the winner of any one race. (f) If one of the races is cancelled, the net pool shall be distributed as provided in subsection (e). If more than one race is cancelled the association shall refund the entire pool. (g) If a wagering interest is scratched (which hereinafter includes being declared a non-starter) from any leg of the Pick Three prior to the running of the first leg, or if a wagering interest is designated to run for purse only in accordance with rule 1974 of this article, all wagers containing such scratched or designated wagering interests shall be refunded. (h) If a wagering interest is scratched or designated to run for purse only from the second leg after the start of the first leg, a consolation payout shall be computed for those wagers combining the winners of the first and third legs with such scratched or designated horse(s) as follows: The amount represented by wagers on combinations involving horse(s) scratched or designated to run for purse only from the second leg shall be deducted from the gross pool. The resulting pool, net of takeout, shall be distributed as a win pool among tickets combining the winners of the first and third legs with horse(s) designated to run for purse only or scratched from the second leg. (i) If a wagering interest is designated to run for purse only or scratched from the third leg after the start of the second leg, a consolation payout shall be computed for those wagers combining the winners of the first and second legs with such designated or scratched horse(s) as follows: The amount represented by wagers on combinations involving horse(s) designated to run for purse only or scratched from the third leg shall be deducted from the gross pool. The resulting pool, net of takeout, shall be distributed as a win pool among tickets combining the winners of the first and second legs with horse(s) designated to run for purse only or scratched from the third leg. (j) If wagering interests are designated to run for purse only or scratched from both the second and third legs after the start of the first leg, a consolation payout shall be computed for those wagers combining the winner of the first leg with horse(s) designated to run for purse only or scratched from both the second and third legs as follows: The amount wagered on the winner of the first leg combined with all other horse(s) designated or scratched from the second and third legs shall be deducted from the gross pool. The resulting pool, net of takeout, shall be distributed as a win pool among tickets combining the winner of the first leg with horse(s) designated to run for purse only or scratched from both the second and third legs. (k) After wagering closes on the first race of the Pick Three no ticket shall be sold, exchanged or cancelled. No person shall disclose the number of tickets sold in the Pick Three races or the number or amount of tickets that selected winners of Pick Three races until the stewards declare the last race official. After the second of the three races, the association may display potential distributions dependent upon the outcome of the third race.
