(2) As a single price pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in any two of the three contests; but if there are no such wagers, then;

(3) As a single price pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in any one of the three contests; but if there are no such wagers, then;

(4) The entire pool shall be refunded on win three wagers for those contests.

(C) If there is a dead heat for first in any of the three contests involving:

(1) Contestants representing the same betting interest, the win three pool shall be distributed as if no dead heat occurred.

(2) Contestants representing two or more betting interests, the win three pool shall be distributed as follows.

(a) As a profit split to those whose selections finished first in each of the three contests; but if there are no such wagers, then;

(b) As a single price pool to those who selected the first place finisher in any two of the three contests; but if there are no such wagers, then;

(c) As a single price pool to those who selected the first place finisher in any one of the three contests; but if there are no such wagers, then;

(d) The entire win three pool shall be refunded.

(D) Should a betting interest be scratched from a leg of the win three all bets with the scratched betting interest will be handled as follows:

(1) If the scratch (which herein after includes being declared a non-starter or a non-betting starter) was made prior to the start of the first leg, all bets containing such scratched betting interest shall be refunded to determine the gross pool an removed from further consideration in the pool;

(2) If the scratch was made in the second leg after the start of the first leg, a consolation payoff shall be computed for those bets combining the winners of the first and third legs with the scratched betting interest as follows: from the gross pool shall be deducted the statutory take-out and then the amount represented by the bets on combinations involving betting interests scratched from the third leg (reduced by the take-out thereon). The resulting remainder shall be divided by the amounts bet on the combination of such first and third leg winners with all betting interests (less breaks) to determine the consolation price per dollar payable to those bets combining winners of the first and third legs with the betting interest scratched in the second leg. The break shall not be deduced from the pool.

The resulting remainder shall be divided by the amount bet on the combination of such first and second leg winners with all betting interests in the third leg (less breaks) to determine the consolation price per dollar payable to those bets combining winners of the first and second legs with an betting interest scratched in the third leg. The breaks shall not be deducted from the pool.

(4) If betting interests are scratched in both the second and third legs after the start of the first leg, a consolation payoff shall be computed for those bets combining the winner of the first leg with the betting interests scratched in both the second and third legs as follows: from the gross pool shall be deducted the takeout and the remainder shall be divided by the amount bet on the winner of the first leg combined with all other betting interests (less breaks) to determine the consolation price per dollar payable to those tickets combining the winner of the first leg with the scratch betting interests from both the second and third legs.

(E) If all three win three contests are cancelled or declared "no contest," the entire pool shall be refunded on win three wagers for those contests.
