Sec. 300.70 - Scratches or Non-Starter

ยง 300.70. Scratches or Non-Starter

a) In the event a betting interest is scratched, all wagers including the scratched betting interest shall be refunded, unless otherwise provided in Board rules (e.g., second half daily double grants a consolation payoff to wagers which include scratched betting interests).

b) In the event the doors in front of a stall of the starting gate, in thoroughbred or quarter horse racing, should fail to open, thereby preventing a horse from starting, all wagers including the horse shall be refunded. There shall be no refund if the horse is part of a coupled entry or mutuel field.
