  • (b) the number of a position that is not preceded by any other position is one;

  • (c) the number of any position that immediately follows another position is the number of that other position plus one;

  • (d) the first position is considered to be the highest of all positions;

  • (e) where horses finish a race in a dead heat in any position, all of them are considered to finish the race in that position;

  • (f) where two or more horses from the same entry or mutuel field finish a race, each of those horses is considered to finish the race in a dead heat in the highest position in which any horse from that entry or mutuel field finishes the race;

  • (g) in the situation described in paragraph (f), no position may be recognized for the purposes of determining the order of positions if no horse is considered to finish a race in that position; and

 An association shall calculate the pay-out price in respect of winning quinella, exactor and triactor bets determined under sections 140 to 142 as follows:

  • (a) where there is one combination of horses, by dividing the net pool by the value of the winning quinella, exactor or triactor bets in which that combination is selected; and

  • (b) where there are two or more combinations of horses, by

    • (i) deducting the value of the winning quinella, exactor or triactor bets in which those combinations are selected from the net pool to determine a calculating pool,

    • (ii) dividing the calculating pool equally between or among those combinations,

    • (iii) dividing each combination’s portion of the calculating pool by the sum of the winning quinella, exactor or triactor bets in which the combination is selected, and

    • (iv) adding $1 to each quotient obtained under subparagraph (iii).

  • SOR/98-242, s. 4.
  •  (1) Where two or more horses finish a race in a dead heat in first position, a winning quinella bet is one in which any two of those horses are selected in either order.

  • (2) Where one horse finishes a race in first position and one or more horses finish the race in second position, a winning quinella bet is one in which the horse that finishes the race in first position and any horse that finishes the race in second position are selected, in either order.

  • (3) In the situation described in subsection (1), where a winning quinella bet cannot be determined because no bet is made on the horses referred to in that subsection, a winning quinella bet is one in which any horse that finishes the race in a dead heat in first position is selected as first or second.

  • (4) In the situation described in subsection (2), where a winning quinella bet cannot be determined because no bet is made on the horses referred to in that subsection, a winning quinella bet is one in which the horse that finishes a race in first position or any horse that finishes the race in second position is selected as first or second.

  • (5) Where one horse finishes a race, a winning quinella bet is one in which that horse is selected as first or second.

  • (6) For the purpose of calculating the pay-out price under section 139,

    • (a) combinations of the same horses in the winning quinella bets determined under subsection (1) or (2) are considered to be one combination notwithstanding the order in which those horses are selected in each bet; and

    • (b) combinations of horses in the winning quinella bets determined under subsection (3), (4) or (5) in which the same horse is selected as first or second are considered to be one combination.
