1978Select Four.
Rule Text(a) The Select Four pari-mutuel pool is not a parlay and has no connection with or relation to any other pari-mutuel pool conducted by the association, nor to any win, place and show pool shown on the totalizator board, nor to the rules governing the distribution of such other pools. (b) A valid Select Four ticket shall be evidence of a binding contract between the holder of the ticket and the racing association, and the said ticket shall constitute an acceptance of Select Four provisions and rules contained in article 18. (c) A Select Four may be given a distinctive name to be selected by the association conducting such races, such as "PICK 4", subject to the approval of the Board. (d) The Select Four pari-mutuel pool consists of amounts contributed for a selection for win only in each of four races designated by the association with the approval of the Board. Each person purchasing a Select Four ticket shall designate the winning horse in each of the four races comprising the Select Four. (e) The net amount in the pari-mutuel pool subject to distribution among winning ticket holders shall be distributed among the holders of tickets which correctly designate the winners in all four races comprising the Select Four. (f) If no ticket is sold combining the four winners of the Select Four, the net amount in the pari-mutuel pool shall be distributed among the holders of tickets which include the winners of any three of the four races comprising the Select Four. (g) If no ticket is sold combining at least three winners of the Select Four, the net amount in the pari-mutuel pool shall be distributed among holders of tickets which include the winner of any two races comprising the Select Four. (h) If no ticket is sold combining at least two winners of the Select Four, the net amount in the pari-mutuel pool shall be distributed among holders of tickets which include the winner of any one race comprising the Select Four. (i) If no ticket is sold that would require distribution of the Select Four pool to a winner under this rule, the association shall make a complete and full refund of the Select Four pool. (j) If for any reason one of the races comprising the Select Four is cancelled, the net amount of the pari-mutuel pool shall be distributed as provided above in subsections (f), (g), (h) and (i). (k) If for any reason two or more of the races comprising the Select Four are cancelled, a full and complete refund will be made of the Select Four pool. (l) In the event a Select Four ticket includes a selection in any one or more of the races comprising the Select Four that is scratched, excused or determined by the stewards to be a non-starter in the race, or if the Select Four ticket includes a selection that is designated to run for purse only in accordance with Rule 1974 of this article, the actual favorite, as evidenced by the amounts wagered in the win pool at the time of the start of the race, will be substituted for the non-starting or designated selection for all purposes, including pool calculations and payouts. (m) In the event of a dead heat for win between two or more horses in any Select Four race, all such horses in the dead heat for win shall be considered as winning horses in the race for the purpose of calculating the pool. (n) No pari-mutuel ticket for the Select Four pool shall be sold, exchanged or cancelled after the time of the closing of wagering in the first of the four races comprising the Select Four, except for such refunds on Select Four tickets as required by this regulation, and no person shall disclose the number of tickets sold in the Select Four pool or the number or amount of tickets selecting winners of Select Four races until such time as the stewards have determined the last race comprising the Select Four to be official. Notwithstanding the above, at the conclusion of the third of the four races comprising the Select Four, an association may with the approval of the Board display potential distribution to ticket holders depending upon the outcome of the fourth race of the Select Four.
