Conn. Agencies Regs. § 12-574-A17 - Quinella

(a) Rules governing. At tracks which have the quinella pool, the rules of this section will govern the system used.
(b) Permitted. Quinella wagering shall be permitted only in accordance with section 12-574-A16 of these regulations.
(c) Rules printed in program. The rules for quinella shall be printed in the daily racing programs sold to the public within the premises of racing associations.
(d) Definition. The quinella is a contract by the purchaser of a ticket combining two (2) horses in a single race, selecting the first two finishers as officially posted in either order such as 1-2 or 2-1. All quinella tickets will be for the win and place combination only.
(e) No exchange of tickets. There positively shall be no exchange of tickets after the purchaser thereof has left the seller's window.
(f) Not a parlay. The quinella 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, daily double, exacta, trifecta, superfecta, or other wagering pool. All tickets will be calculated in an entirely separate pool.
(g) Selected by numbers. Selections are to be made by program numbers and not necessarily by post position numbers. Large numbers appearing on the tickets are program numbers of the horses.
(h) Winning quinella combination. The winning quinella combination shall be the first two horses to finish the race. The order in which the horses finish is immaterial.
(i) Calculation and distribution of pools. The quinella 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, including profit and wager.
(j) Entries, fields. Coupled entries and fields are prohibited in quinella races.
(k) Scratched or excused horses. Should any horse entered in a quinella race be scratched or excused by the stewards after wagering has commenced or should any horse be prevented from racing because of the failure of the stall doors or the starting gate to open, all tickets including such horse shall be deducted from the quinella pool and money refunded to the purchasers of tickets on the horse so excused or prevented from racing, upon surrender of said tickets.
(l) Determination of winners. In the event no ticket is sold on the combination of the first two horses in the official placing, then the next horse or horses, in case of dead heats, in the order of official placing shall be included in the winning combination. In the event of a dead heat for second position and no ticket is sold on one of the horses involved, in the dead heat combined with the winner, the entire pool shall be paid to holders of tickets which combine the winner with the other horse in the dead heat.
(m) Refund. If no ticket is sold that would require distribution of the net quinella pool to winners as above defined, the association shall make a complete and full refund of the quinella pool upon surrender of the quinella tickets so purchased.
(n) Dead heats. In the event of a dead heat for first position, the pool shall be paid to holders of tickets which combine the two horses involved in the dead heat. In the event of a dead heat for second position, two winning combinations result and the pool shall be divided equally between the holders of tickets which combine the winner with the horses involved in the dead heat for second position. In like manner, in the event of a triple dead heat for second position, three winning combinations would result. In the event of a triple dead heat for first position, three winning combinations would result.
(o) Permitted sales. Sale of quinella tickets other than through pari-mutuel machines shall be deemed illegal and is prohibited.
(p) Hold tickets. Tickets should be retained until the results have been declared official.
(q) Denomination of tickets. Quinella tickets shall be sold only in denominations approved by the commission.
