3769-3-17 Dead heats in the place pool.

(A) If two or more horses finish in a dead heat for first position, they alone share in the place pool. The amounts of money wagered on such horses in the place pool shall be deducted from the net place pool to determine the profit, which shall be divided into as many equal parts as there are horses in the dead heat. Each part shall be divided by the amount wagered on one of said horses to determine the profit per dollar, to which profit the wager shall be added in totaling the payoff.

(B) If two or more horses should be adjudged to have finished in a dead heat for second position, the winnings remaining (after deduction from the net place pool and allocation of the amounts of their wagers to those who wagered in the place pool on the horse adjudged to have finished first and to those who wagered on each of the two horses adjudged to have finished in a dead heat for second position) shall be divided as followed: one-half of such winnings shall be allotted to those who wagered on the horse adjudged to have finished first, and the remaining one-half shall be divided into as many equal parts as there are horses adjudged to have finished in a dead heat for second position, and one of such equal parts shall be allotted to each of the class of purchasers of place tickets who wagered on one of such horses adjudged to have finished in such dead heat for second position.

(C) If one horse of an entry or field finishes first and another horse of the same entry or field finishes in a dead heat for second with a horse not in the entry or field, the winnings remaining (after deduction from the net place pool and allocation of the amount of their wagers to those who wagered in the place pool on the horse that finished first and to the horse that finished in a dead heat for second with the entry or field horse) shall be divided as follows: three-fourths of such winnings shall be allotted to those who wagered on the entry or field and the remaining one-fourth shall be allotted to those who wagered on the horse adjudged to have finished second in the dead heat with the entry or field horse.
