(1) The Pick-6 requires the selection of the first place finisher in each of six specified races designated by the association and approved by the commission.Any changes to the Pick-6 format shall be approved by the commission before implementation.

(2) The Pick-6 pari-mutuel pool consists of amounts contributed for a win only selection in each of six (6) races designated by the association. Each individual placing a Pick-6 wager shall designate the winning horse in each of six (6) races comprising the Pick-6.

(3)(a) The entire net Pick-6 pool and the Unique Carryover, if any, shall be distributed only if there is a single wager placed for the required bet minimum that selected the first-place finisher in each of the Pick-6 contests, based upon the official order of finish. (b) If there is no single winning wager as defined in section (a), a percentage that has been declared by the Association and approved by KHRC of the net Pick-6 pool for that day shall be distributed as a single price pool as defined below, and the remaining percentage (jackpot share) of the net Pick-6 pool shall be added to the Unique Carryover.

(4) The net Pick-6 pool shall be distributed based upon the official order of finish as a single price pool to individuals whose selection finished first in each of the six races, but if there are no such wagers, then; the entire net Pick-6 pool shall be added to the Unique Carryover.

(5) If for any reason one or two of the races comprising the Pick-6 is cancelled, the net amount of the pari-mutuel pool for that day shall be distributed as a single price pool to individuals whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Pick-6 races for that performance.The distribution shall include the portion ordinarily retained for the Pick-6 carryover, except not the carryover from previous performances.

(6)If for any reason three or more races comprising the Pick-6 are cancelled, the entire pool shall be refunded on Pick-6 wagers for those races.

(7) When the condition of the turf course warrants a change of racing surface in any races of the Pick-6, and such change has not been disclosed to the public prior to “off time” of the first race of the Pick-6, the stewards shall declare the changed races an “all win” race for Pick-6 wagering purposes only.An “all win” race will assign the winner of that race to each Pick-6 ticket holder as their selection for that race.In the event there are two or more races comprising the Pick-6 that are declared “all win,” any Unique Carryover and any guaranteed monies shall be removed from that day’s calculation.

(8)(a) If there is a dead heat for first in any Pick-6 race involving horses representing the same betting interest, the Pick-6 pool shall be distributed as if no dead heat occurred. (b) If there is a dead heat for first in any Pick-6 race involving horses representing two or more betting interests, the Pick-6 pool shall be distributed as a single price pool with each winning wager receiving an equal share of the profit.

(9) Should a betting interest in any of the Pick-6 races be scratched, excused, or determined by the stewards to be a non-starter in a race, the actual favorite, as evidenced by total amounts wagered in the win pool at the host association for the race at the close of wagering on that race, shall be substituted for the scratched betting interest for all purposes, including pool calculations. (a) In the event that the win pool total for two or more favorites is identical, the substitute selection shall be the betting interest with the lowest program number. (b) The totalizator shall produce reports showing each of the wagering combinations with substituted betting interests which became winners as a result of the substitution, in addition to the normal winning combination.

(10) The Pick-6 pool shall be cancelled and all Pick-6 wagers for the individual performance shall be refunded if at least three races included as part of a Pick-6 are cancelled or declared “no contest.”

1. The percentage of the pool to be retained for the winning wagers, and

2. The designated amount of any cap to be set on the pool to be retained for the winning wagers.

(b) Any changes to the Pick-6 scheduling require prior approval from the commission or its designee.

(12)(a) The Unique Pick-6 carryover, if any, may be capped at a designated level approved by the commission so that if, at the close of any performance, the amount in the Unique Pick-6 carryover equals or exceeds the designated cap, the Unique Pick-6 carryover will be frozen until it is won or distributed under the provisions of this administrative regulation. (b) After the Unique Pick-6 carryover is frozen, one hundred percent (100%) of the net pool, part of which ordinarily would be added to the Unique Pick-6 carryover, shall be distributed to individuals whose selections finished first in the greatest number of Pick-6 races for that performance.

(14) If the Unique Pick-6 carryover or a portion of the Unique Pick-6 carryover, is designated for distribution on a specified date and performance, and no wagers correctly select the first-place finisher in each of the Pick-6 races, the entire net pool plus the Unique Pick-6 carryover designated for distribution on that date shall be distributed as a single price pool to individuals whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Pick-6 races.

(15) The Unique Pick-6 carryover shall be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance only under the following circumstances: (a) Upon written approval from the commission as provided in subsection (8) of this section; or (b) Upon written approval from the commission when there is a change in the carryover cap; or (c) A change from Pick-6 wagering to another type of Pick-(N) wagering; or (d) When the Pick-6 is discontinued; or (e) On the closing performance of the meeting or split meeting.

Each day that there is no unique ticket, 70% will be paid out as the minor share to ticketholders which correctly selected the most first place finishers in the Pick(n) contests and 30% will be carried over to the major share (i.e. unique share). On a day that the jackpot is hit, that person gets 100% of the day’s pool and any carryover amount.

The California Horse Racing Board has approved the following as the definition of “unique”:

1) The total amount wagered on one and only one winning combination selecting the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, based up on the official order of finish, is equal to the minimum allowable wager, 2) there is more than one combination selecting the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) equal to the minimum allowable wager and all such winning combinations are on one ticket that has a unique serial number assigned by the tote company that issued the ticket and the multiple winning combinations is solely a result of a wagering interest being scratched and replaced with the post time favorite; 3) there is more than one combination selecting the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) equal to the minimum allowable wager and all such winning combinations are on one ticket that has a unique serial number assigned by the tote company that issued the ticket and the multiple winning combinations is solely a result of a dead heat; 4) there is more than one combination selecting the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) equal to the minimum allowable wager and all such winning combinations are on one ticket that has a unique serial number assigned by the tote company that issued the ticket and the multiple winning combinations is solely a result of there is a surface change after the Pick 6 pool has closed and as a result the race is a “Win All”; or 5) there is more than one combination selecting the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) equal to the minimum allowable wager and all such winning combinations are on one ticket that has a unique serial number assigned by the tote company that issued the ticket and the multiple winning combinations is solely a result of some combination of (2), (3), and (4) above.

Please note, if a customer uses the alternate runner option and selects a horse as their alternate that is also part of their main selection and as a result has two (2) winning combinations, that ticket is not considered unique. This is true even if the alternate is the post time favorite.

Late Surface Change

Pursuant to ARCI 004-105(G)(6)-(7), on any day in which there is a surface change after the Pick 6 pool closes, “the net pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests for that performance. Such distribution shall include the portion ordinarily retained for the Pick (n) carryover but not the carryover from previous performances.”

The California Horse Racing Board approved LATC’s request that on any day in which there is a surface change after the Pick 6 pool has closed, with respect to the race(s) with a changed surface, the changed leg(s), i.e. the race(s) that had the surface change, are declared a “Win All,” not a “no contest.”

The California Horse Racing Board approved LATC’s request that on any day in which there is a surface change after the Pick 6 pool has closed, the following payout distribution method be used: the payout distribution method as provided for in ARCI 004-105(G)(2)(g) if there is a unique ticket and if there is not a unique ticket, the entire day’s net pool be paid to ticketholders which correctly selected the most first place finishers in the Pick(n) contests. In other words, on any day in which there is a surface change after the Pick 6 pool has closed, the payout will be treated the same way it is on all other days during the license period if there is a unique winning ticket. If there is no unique winning ticket, the day’s major share (unique share) will be added to day’s minor share. On days in which there is a surface change after the Pick 6 pool has closed, the unique jackpot carryover can be paid out, however, it cannot grow.
