Misc. Rules

  1. If the track payout pays out 2 of 3, 3 or 4, or 5 of 6 on a race for pick 3's, 4's, 6's at Category D or E tracks and a client has the exact ticket, the customer will be paid 3x the amount of the consolation. If there is no consolation, said customer will receive a full refund.

  4. For head-to-head matchups between horses/greyhounds, both listed horses/greyhounds must run for action. The horse/greyhound you choose doesn't have to win the race; instead, it just has to finish ahead of the other horse/greyhound in the matchup. For example, if you wager on the 3 horse/greyhound to defeat the 4 horse/greyhound, and your horse/greyhound comes in third and the 4 horse/greyhound comes in fourth, you will be declared the winner of your wager. Your horse/greyhound must come ahead of the horse/greyhound you have wagered against regardless of whether you win the race or not. Dead Heat Rules Apply.
  5. If you wager on a multi horse/greyhound matchup (Where you have one or more horses/greyhounds running against ;one or more other horses/greyhounds) once again all the horses/greyhounds must run for action. Your horses/greyhounds may not have to win the race for you to win your wager. They just have to finish ahead of the horses/greyhounds you have wagered against. Dead Heat Rules Apply.
  6. 3 Way Horse/Greyhound Matchup - You can wager against 2 other horses/greyhounds in a 3 way matchup. Your horse/greyhound would have to defeat 2 horses/greyhounds for you to win. For example if you bet on the 3 horse/greyhound to defeat the 1 and 2 horse/greyhound, your horse/greyhound needs to come ahead of these two horses/greyhounds when the race finishes in order for you to be a winner. You do not have to win the race, but you do need to finish ahead of the two other horse/greyhound you have wager against. Dead Heat Rules Apply.
  7. All Daily Double, Pick 3's, Pick 4's and Pick 6's wager payouts count towards the last race in the wager when the maximum amount paid out per race is calculated. For example, if you place a Daily Double wager on the first and second races at Saratoga Park, which has a per race payout limit of $30,000, and you won $15,000 on that wager. You cannot win more then $15,000 on the remaining of your wagers, on the second race.
