Scratched Horse Rules

  1. Win/Place/Show
    BetUS will issue a refund for all parts of your wager involving a scratched horse.
  2. Exacta/Trifecta
    Combo bets that contain a scratched horse will have the scratched portion refunded. (Please note that these rules may not apply to wagers on entries. See entry rules for details).
  3. Daily Doubles
    If a horse is scratched before the second leg, a consolation will be paid on that combo, as specified by track payouts.
  4. Pick 3’s, Pick 4’s, and Pick 6’s
    If a horse is scratched in any leg, you will receive the track favorite or any official consolation payoffs.

Entry Rules

If you wager on a horse that is coupled with one or more horses, your wager includes all horses under the said number. If one of your entries is scratched but another horse runs, your wager has action. BetUS does not accept “must go” wagers. As long as one of the coupled horses runs, all entry wagers have action.

Misc. Rules

  1. All horse racing futures and proposition wagers that are offered in BetUS Sportsbook on the Triple Crown, Breeders Cup, and including fixed odds are considered action. Therefore, there will be no refunds.
  2. Non U.S Horse Futures (UK, France, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia) are considered action, all in run or not.
  3. For head-to-head matchups between horses, both listed horses must run for action. The horse you choose doesn’t have to win the race; instead, it just has to finish ahead of the other horse in the matchup. For example, if you wager on the 3 horse to defeat the 4 horse, and your horse comes in third and the 4 horse comes in fourth, you will be declared the winner of your wager. Your horse must come ahead of the horse you have wagered against regardless of whether you win the race or not. In the event of a dead heat between the two horses the wager will be considered no action.
  4. If you wager on a multi-horse matchup (where you have one or more horses running against one or more other horses) once again all the horses must run for action. Your horses may not have to win the race for you to win your wager. They just have to finish ahead of the horses you have wagered against. Dead Heat Rules Apply.
  5. 3 Way Horse Matchup – You can wager against 2 other horses in a 3-way matchup. Your horse would have to defeat 2 horses for you to win. For example, if you bet on the 3 horse to defeat the 1 and 2 horse, your horse needs to come ahead of these two horses when the race finishes for you to be a winner. You do not have to win the race, but you do need to finish ahead of the two other horses you have wagered against. Dead Heat Rules Apply.
  6. All Daily Double, Pick 3’s, Pick 4’s and Pick 6’s wager payouts count towards the last race in the wager when the maximum amount paid out per race is calculated. For example, if you place a Daily Double wager on the first and second races at Saratoga Park, which has a per race payout limit of $30,000, and you won $15,000 on that wager, you cannot win more than $15,000 on the remaining of your wagers, on the second race.
