3769-3-19 Daily double pool calculations.

(A) The object of the daily double is to select on one ticket, and in one combination, the winners of two consecutive races as officially posted. These races will be clearly designated on the program.

(B) The daily double is calculated as an entirely separate pool and, in general, is calculated as a win pool.

(C) If no ticket is sold combining the two winners of the daily double, the pool shall then be apportioned equally between those having tickets including the winner in the first race of the daily double and those having tickets including the winner in the second race of the daily double in the same manner in which a place pool is calculated and distributed.

(D) If no ticket is sold on the winner of the first race of the daily double on any combination, the entire pool is apportioned to the holders of tickets on the winner of the second race of the daily double. Likewise, if no ticket is sold on the winner of the second race of the daily double or any combination, the entire pool is apportioned to the holders of tickets on the winner of the first race of the daily double. If there are none, the daily double shall be canceled and the gross pool refunded to holders of daily double tickets.

(E) If a dead heat to win should result in either the first or second race of the daily double, the total pool is calculated as a place pool. In case of a dead heat for the winner of the first race of the daily double, the posting of payoff prices will be made after the winner of the second race of the daily double is official.

(F) In the event any horse or horses in the first half of the daily double should be excused by the stewards after the horses have left the paddock for the post, or after the betting on the daily double has been closed, or should any horse or horses in the first half of the daily double be declared a non-starter for any reason by the stewards, the money wagered on any horse or horses so excused or prevented from racing shall be deducted from the daily double pool and refunded to the purchaser or purchasers of tickets on the horse or horses so excused or prevented from racing.

(G) If a horse is scratched from the second half of the daily double before it becomes a starter in the second half, but after the first half of the daily double has been run, all daily double tickets combining the scratched horse in the second race of the daily double with the actual winner of the first race of the daily double shall be paid a price equivalent to that fraction of the net pool derived by dividing the net pool by the total purchase price of all tickets combining the winner of the first race of the daily double with all horses in the second race of the daily double. The total payoff on all tickets combining the winner of the first race of the daily double with the scratched horse in the second race of the daily double as determined by the method set forth in this rule shall be deducted from the net daily double pool.

(H) The possible payoff prices shall be posted, displayed, or announced to the public before the start of the second race of a daily double, and as soon as possible after the horses in the race of the second half of a daily double have entered upon the track on the way to the post.

(I) If for any reason the second race of the daily double is canceled or declared "no race" by the stewards after the first daily double race is declared official, then the net daily double pool shall be distributed to the wagering combinations which include the horse or betting interest which finished first in the first daily double race.

If none were sold, then the net pool will be distributed to those combinations which include the horse or wagering interest which finished second in the first race and; if none, then the daily double will be canceled and the complete pool will be refunded to those holding daily double tickets.

(J) Daily double wagering will close at the start of the first race of the daily double and a complete report of the wagering will be provided to the representative of the racing commission prior to the second race of the double.

(K) At every location on the premises of each permit holder at which daily double tickets may be sold, a board or alternate display device shall be maintained within view of patrons who may purchase daily double tickets at such location, upon which, as a preliminary to the sale of daily double tickets, opening lines of approximate odds with respect to both of the two races of the daily double shall be posted, unless official programs carry such opening lines of approximate odds.

(L) Unless one or more horses shall be adjudged to have finished in a dead heat for first position in the first race of a daily double, or unless subsequent to the running of the first race of the daily double, the stewards shall order a horse or horses withdrawn from the second race of the daily double, the payoff prices of the daily double tickets representing the horse adjudged to have finished first in the first race of the daily double and each of the horses which are expected to participate in the second race of the daily double shall be video displayed or posted at a location designated for such purpose; and, if such prices so posted shall not be legible from the grandstand, they shall be announced over a loud speaker system if such a system has been installed and is in working order.

(M) If one or more horses have been adjudged to have finished in a dead heat for first position in the first race of a daily double, or if, subsequent to the running of the first race of a daily double and prior to the displaying and announcing of payoff prices on the daily double, pursuant to paragraph (L) of this rule, the stewards shall order a horse or horses withdrawn from the second race of the daily double, then because of the complicated calculations involved, the payoff prices of the daily double tickets need not be posted or announced as required in paragraph (L) of this rule. However, announcement of the fact that such prices will not be posted or displayed and the reason thereof will be made immediately after the first race. If any payoff prices on the daily double shall have been posted or announced prior to the ordering by the stewards of the withdrawal of a horse or horses, and if such posted prices become incorrect and should be erased, the reason for such erasure shall be displayed, and a statement that such prices will not be applicable shall be announced.
