Welcome to the Horse Rules section. For more information about betting, please also review our general Betting Rules section.
When placing a wager on coupled Horses, your wager will include all horses that are represented by that same saddle number. If part of the entry is scratched and another part of the entry runs then all wagers are deemed as having action, unless the track deems it a non-betting entry. There is no "must go" action as part of your wager. When one of the entry horses runs, all bets and bet types have action, unless the entry is a late gate scratch – then both horses are considered scratched.
All exacta, trifecta, superfecta, quinella, win, place and show bets will be refunded in the event that a horse is scratched. The portion of combos that include said horse will be refunded as well.
Scratches involving multiple race wagers (pick 3s, 4s and 6s) are subject to the host tracks official rules. A horse scratching does not refund these ticket parts automatically. Winning tickets for multiple race wagers are refunded to your account based on the official result decreed by the host track where the race took place. It is customary for said runners to be included with the winning horse if, and only if, the race is won by the post time favorite. In the event that a horse is scratched in a multiple race wager, and it is not in the first leg, the track will give you the post time favorite or the consolation. The decision is left to the host track.
If a horse is a late scratch and the host track pays out consolations, LowVig will also pay the same consolations. If the host track deems a scratch as a full refund, LowVig will also refund any parts of multiple horse combinations accordingly.
If the runner selected in the first leg of the Daily Double is a scratch, tickets will be refunded automatically.
Daily Double tickets are paid out based on the official result decreed by the host track where the race took place. For example, if a horse is scratched during the second leg of a daily double event and the host track pays a consolation, LowVig will also pay the consolation. If the host track does not pay consolations for whatever reason, LowVig will not pay consolations either.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a refund in the event that an entry is not calculated correctly.
If a winning payout combination is selected by a LowVig player and the same winning combination is not covered at the host track, LowVig will pay 100% of the track pool, less the percentage take out by the host track, up to the MAX payout listed on our track limit table. If the percentage take out of the host track is not available, LowVig will deduct 25% of the pool. If a customer has multiple winning tickets on said wager, the payout will be divided accordingly.
