• (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;

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:

• (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).
