Calculation of Pay-out Price of Daily Double Pools and Consolation Doubles

 Subject to subsection 134(2), section 135, subsection 136(2) and section 137, an association shall calculate the pay-out price of a daily double pool by dividing the net pool by the value of the bets made that combine the winning horses in each of the two races of the daily double.

  •  (1) Where no daily double bets have been made on the winning horse of the first race of a daily double, the next horse in the official result on which daily double bets have been made shall be deemed to be the winning horse in that race, and for the purposes of the daily double pool any daily double bets on that horse shall be deemed to be winning bets on the first race of the daily double.

  • (2) Where, in respect of the second race of a daily double, no daily double bets have been made that combine the winning horse in the first race of a daily double with the winning horse in the second race of the daily double, an association shall calculate the pay-out price of a daily double pool by dividing the net pool by the value of the bets made that combine the winning horse in the first race with the next horse in the official result, on which bets have been made in the second race of the daily double.

 Where

  • (a) an association has posted the official result of the first race of a daily double and the second race of a daily double

an association shall calculate the pay-out price of a daily double pool in accordance with subsection 120(1), except that the net pool shall be divided by the value of the daily double bets made on the horse that finished first in the official result of the first race of the daily double.

  •  (1) An association shall calculate a consolation double by dividing the net pool by the value of the daily double bets made on the winning horse in the first race of the daily double.

  • (2) If, after betting has been closed for the first race of a daily double, a horse, entry or mutuel field in the second race of the daily double is scratched, the association shall calculate the pay-out price of the daily double pool by

    • (a) multiplying the quotient obtained in subsection (1) by the value of the bets made that combine the winning horse in the first race with the horse, entry or mutuel field that was scratched from the second race;

    • (b) deducting the product obtained pursuant to paragraph (a) from the net pool; and
