Version of section 137 from 2012-01-01 to 2022-07-13:

  •  (1) Where two or more horses finish in a dead heat for first place in the official result of one or both of the first or second races of a daily double, the bets made that combine the winning horse or any of the winning horses in the first race of the daily double with the winning horse or any of the winning horses in the second race of the daily double shall be considered bets on the winning combinations.

  • (2) Where a dead heat described in subsection (1) occurs, an association shall calculate the pay-out price of a daily double pool by

    • (a) deducting the value of the bets made on the winning combinations from the net pool to determine the calculating pool;

    • (b) dividing the calculating pool into as many equal portions as there are winning horses in the first race on which bets on winning combinations have been made and allocating those portions to each winning horse;

    • (c) dividing each portion allocated under paragraph (b) into as many equal portions as there are winning horses in the second race on which bets on winning combinations have been made and allocating those portions to each winning combination;

    • (d) dividing each portion allocated pursuant to paragraph (c) by the value of the bets made on the applicable winning combination; and

    • (e) adding $1 to the quotients obtained pursuant to paragraph(d).

  • (3) Where a dead heat described in subsection (1) occurs and there are no bets made that combine the winning horse or any of the winning horses in the first race of a daily double with the winning horse or any of the winning horses in the second race of the daily double, an association shall calculate the pay-out price of the daily double pool in accordance with subsection (2), except that

    • (a) the bets made that combine any of the winning horses in the first race with the horse in the second race that finishes next after the winning horse or horses in the official result shall be considered a winning combination; and

    • (b) where no bets have been made that combine the winning horse or horses in the first race with any horse that finishes the second race, the bets that combine the horse in the first race that finishes next after the winning horse or horses in the official result with any of the winning horses in the second race shall be considered a winning combination.

  • (4) Where two or more horses finish in a dead heat in first place in the official result of the first race of a daily double, an association shall calculate the respective consolation doubles by

    • (a) deducting the value of the daily double bets made on the horses that finish first in the official result of the first race from the net pool to determine the calculating pool;

    • (b) dividing the calculating pool into as many equal portions as there are winning horses in the first race;

    • (c) allocating the portion obtained under paragraph (b) to each winning horse in the first race;

    • (d) dividing each portion allocated under paragraph (c) by the value of the bets made on each winning horse in the first race; and

    • (e) adding $1 to the quotients obtained pursuant to paragraph (d).

  • (5) If a dead heat described in subsection (1) occurs and, after betting has been closed for the first race of the daily double, a horse, entry or mutuel field in the second race is scratched, an association shall calculate the pay-out price of a daily double pool in accordance with subsection (2), except that the net pool shall be reduced by the sum of the products obtained from multiplying the amount of money bet on the combination of each winning horse in the first race with the scratched horse, entry or mutuel field in the second race by the respective consolation double calculated pursuant to subsection (4).
