SECTION 300.70 SCRATCHES OR NON-STARTER
Section 300.70 Scratches or Non-Starter
a) In the event a betting interest is scratched, all wagers including the scratched betting interest shall be refunded, unless otherwise provided in Board rules (e.g., second half daily double grants a consolation payoff to wagers which include scratched betting interests).
b) In the event the doors in front of a stall of the starting gate, in thoroughbred or quarter horse racing, should fail to open, thereby preventing a horse from starting, all wagers including the horse shall be refunded. There shall be no refund if the horse is part of a coupled entry or mutuel field.
