governing. At tracks which have the daily double pool, the rules of this
section will govern the system used.
Permitted. Daily double
wagering is permitted during any single racing program. An association may not
hold more than one daily double on a single racing program unless express
written consent shall be given thereto by the commission upon written
Rules printed in program. The rules for daily double shall be
printed in the daily racing programs sold to the public within the premises of
exchange of tickets. There positively shall be no exchange of tickets
after the purchaser thereof has left the sales window.
Not a parlay. The daily
double is not a "parlay" and has no connection with or relation to any other
pool, and is no part of the win, place and show pools, quinella, exacts,
trifecta, superfecta, or other wagering pool. All tickets will be calculated in
an entirely separate pool.
Prerequisites. In order to win a daily double, it is necessary for
the purchaser of a daily double ticket to select the winners of each of the two
(2) races specified for the daily double. If either of his selections fails to
win, he receives no payment, except as hereinafter provided.
Hurdle races, steeplechase not
included. No hurdle race or steeplechase shall be included in the races
comprising the daily double unless express written consent shall be given
thereto by the commission upon written application therefor.
Selected by numbers.
Selections are to be made of one horse for each of two (2) races in the daily
double by program number, and not necessarily by post position number. Large
numbers appearing on the tickets are program numbers of the horses.
Posting the payoff. The
possible payoff of each combination coupled with the winner of the first half
of the daily double shall be posted in a prominent place easily visible from
the grandstand club house and bleachers after the result of the first race is
declared "official" and before second race is run, except in the event of a
dead heat in the first race, when the posting of the payoff may be deferred
until the second race has been run. However, announcement of this fact must be
made over the loud speaker and notice to this effect be posted on the board at
the conclusion of the first half of the daily double.
Calculation, distribution of
pools. The daily double pool shall be calculated and distributed as
follows: the net pool divided by the amount wagered on the winning combinations
determines the payoff per dollar bet.
Failure to select a winner and race
(1) If no daily double
ticket is sold designating the winner of the first race, or the first race is
cancelled or declared "no race," the daily double shall be declared off and the
gross pool refunded.
(2) If no
daily double ticket is sold combining the winners of the first and second
races, or the second race is cancelled or declared "no race," the net pool
shall be distributed to holders of tickets designating the winner of the first
race, as in a win pool and the daily double shall terminate.
(1) In the event of a dead heat either in the
first race or second race of the daily double, two winning combinations result.
The amounts wagered on both winning combinations are deducted from the net pool
to determine the profit. This profit is divided in half, and the halves, in
turn, divided by the two amounts mentioned above. This determines the profit
per dollar, to which is added the amount of the wager.
(2) In the event of a dead heat in both races
of the daily double, four winning combinations result. The amounts wagered on
these four winning combinations are deducted from the net pool to determine the
profit. This profit is divided into four equal parts, and each part, in turn,
divided by the four amounts mentioned above. This determines the profit per
dollar, to which is added the amount of the wager.
Effect - horse scratched,
(1) Should any horse in the
first or the second race of the daily double be scratched or excused by the
stewards before the running of the first race, or be prevented from starting in
the first race because of the failure of the starting gate door to open, all
money wagered on combinations including such horse shall be deducted from the
daily double pool and shall be refunded upon presentation and surrender of
pari-mutuel tickets sold thereon.
(2) Should any horse in the second race of
the daily double be scratched or excused by the stewards after the running of
the first race of the daily double, or be prevented from starting because of
the failure of the starting gate door to open, a consolation pool will result.
In such a case, all tickets combining the scratched or excused horse with the
actual winner of the first race shall become consolation tickets and shall be
paid a price per dollar bet determined as follows: the net daily double pool
shall be divided by the total purchase price of all daily double tickets
designating the winner of the first race of the daily double and the result
obtained shall constitute the consolation price per dollar bet. The amount set
aside for these consolation payoffs will be deducted from the net daily double
(3) If the holder of a ticket
loses the first race of the daily double, and the horse is scratched, excused
or prevented from racing in the second race, no money shall be
Permitted sales. Sale of daily double tickets other than through
pari-mutuel machines shall be deemed illegal and is prohibited.
Hold tickets. Tickets should
be retained until the results have been declared official.
Denomination of tickets.
Daily double tickets shall be sold only in denominations approved by the
