9.1 General Provisions

9.1.1 General

Each aAssociation shall conduct wagering in accordance with applicable laws and these rules. Such wagering shall employ a pari-mutuel system approved by the Commission. The totalisator shall be tested prior to and during the meeting as required by the Commission.

9.1.2 Records

The aAssociation shall maintain records of all wagering so the Commission may review such records for any contest including the opening line, subsequent odds fluctuation, the amount and at which window wagers were placed on any betting interest and such other information as may be required. Such wagering records shall be retained by each aAssociation and safeguarded for a period of time specified by the Commission. The Commission may require that certain of these records be made available to the wagering public at the completion of each contest.

9.1.3 Pari-Mutuel Tickets Recording of a Wager

A pari-mutuel ticket is evidence of a contribution to the pari-mutuel pool operated by the aAssociation and is evidence of the obligation of the aAssociation to pay to the holder thereof such portion of the distributable amount of the pari-mutuel pool as is represented by such valid pari-mutuel ticket. The aAssociation shall cash all valid winning tickets when such are presented for payment during the course of the meeting where sold, and for a specified period after the last day of the meeting.

9.1.3.1 To be deemed a valid pari-mutuel ticket, such ticket shall have been issued by a pari-mutuel ticket machine operated by the aAssociation and recorded as a ticket entitled to a share of the pari-mutuel pool, and contain imprinted information as to:

9.1.3.1.8 the amount or amounts of the contributions to the pari-mutuel pool or pools for which the ticket is evidence.

9.1.3.2 No pari-mutuel ticket recorded or reported as previously paid, canceled, or nonexistent shall be deemed a valid pari-mutuel ticket by the aAssociation. The aAssociation may withhold payment and refuse to cash any pari-mutuel ticket deemed not valid.

9.1.4.1 Pari-mutuel tickets shall not be sold by anyone other than an aAssociation licensed to conduct pari-mutuel wagering.

9.1.4.3 Claims pertaining to a mistake on an issued or unissued ticket, or a mistake involving failure to issue a ticket, must be made by the bettor prior to leaving the seller's window. Cancellation or exchange of tickets issued shall not be permitted after a patron has left a seller's window except in accordance with written policies established by the aAssociation subject to review by the Commission.

9.1.4.4 Payment on winning pari-mutuel wagers shall be made on the basis of the order of finish as purposely posted and declared "official". Any subsequent change in the order of finish or award of purse money as may result from a subsequent ruling by the State Steward Presiding Judge, by the judges or by the Commission shall in no way affect the pari-mutuel payoff. If an error in the posted order of finish or payout figures is discovered, the official order of finish or payoff prices may be corrected and an announcement concerning the change shall be made to the public.

9.1.4.5 The aAssociation shall have no obligation to enter a wager into a betting pool if unable to do so due to equipment failure.

9.1.5 Advance Performance Wagering

No aAssociation shall permit wagering to begin more than one hour before scheduled post time of the first contest of a performance unless it has first obtained the authorization of the Commission.

9.1.6 Claims for Payment from Pari-Mutuel Pool

In the case of a disputed claim made for payment on a pari-mutuel wager, and following receipt of a report by the aAssociation regarding the disputed claim, the Commission may adjudicate the claim and may order payment thereon from the pari-mutuel pool or by the aAssociation, or may deny the claim, or may make such other order as it may deem proper.

9.1.7 Payment for Errors

If an error occurs in the payment amounts for pari-mutuel wagers which are cashed or entitled to be cashed; and as a result of such error the pari-mutuel pool involved in the error is not correctly distributed among winning ticket holders, the following shall apply:

9.1.7.1 Verification is required to show that the amount of the commission, the amount in breakage, and the amount in payoffs is equal to the total gross pool. If the amount of the pool is more than the amount used to calculate the payoff, the underpayment shall be added to the corresponding pool of the next contest. If underpayments are discovered after the close of the meeting, the underpayment shall be held in an interest-bearing account approved by the Commission until being added, together with accrued interest, to the corresponding pool of the next meet.

9.1.7.2 In the event the error results in an overpayment to winning wagers, the aAssociation shall be responsible for such payment.

If all contestants within a coupled entry or mutuel field are scratched, then tickets on such betting interests shall be refunded, notwithstanding other provisions of these rules.

9.1.12.2 For the purpose of price calculations only, coupled entries and mutuel fields shall be calculated as a single finisher, using the finishing position of the leading contestant in that coupled entry or mutuel field to determine order of placing.

The net Show pool shall be distributed to winning wagers in the following precedence, based upon the official order of finish:

9.5.4.1.1 If contestants of a coupled entry or mutuel field finished in the first three places, as a single price pool to those who selected the coupled entry or mutuel field; otherwise

In calculating the consolation payoff the net Double pool shall be divided by the total amount wagered on the winner of the first contest and an unbroken consolation price obtained. The broken consolation price is multiplied by the dollar value of wagers on the winner of the first contest combined with the scratched betting interest to obtain the consolation payoff. Breakage is not declared in this calculation. The consolation payoff is deducted from the net Double pool before calculation and distribution of the winning Double payoff. Dead heats including separate betting interests in the first contest shall result in a consolation payoff calculated as a profit split.

9.5.7 Pick (n) Pools

9.5.7.1 The Pick (n) requires selection of the first-place finisher in each of a designated number of contests.

9.5.7.2.1 Method 1, Pick (n) with Carryover: The net Pick (n) pool and carryover, if any, shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no such wagers, then a designated percentage of the net pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests; and the remainder shall be added to the carryover.

9.5.7.2.2 Method 2, Pick (n) with Minor Pool and Carryover: The major share of the net Pick (n) pool and the carryover, if any, shall be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. The minor share of the net Pick (n) pool shall be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher in the second greatest number of Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there are no wagers selecting the first-place finisher of all Pick (n) contests, the minor share of the net Pick (n) pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests; and the major share shall be added to the carryover.

If the greatest number of first-place finishers selected is one (1), the major and minor shares are combined for distribution as a single price pool. If there are no winning wagers, the pool is refunded.

If there are no wagers selecting the first-place finisher in a second greatest number of Pick (n) contests, the minor share of the net Pick (n) pool shall be combined with the major share for distribution as a single price pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests. If there are no winning wagers, the pool is refunded.

9.5.7.2.6 Method 6, Pick (n) with Minor Pool, Jackpot Pool, Major Carryover and Jackpot Carryover: Predetermined percentages of the net Pick (n) pool shall be set aside as a Major pool, Minor pool and Jackpot pool. The Major share of the net Pick (n) pool and the Major carry-over, if any, shall be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher of each of the Pick (n) contests, based on the official order of finish. If there are no tickets selecting the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, the Major net pool shall be added to the Major carry-over.

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. The totalisator 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.

9.5.7.5 The Pick (n) pool shall be canceled and all Pick (n) wagers for the individual performance shall be refunded if:

Such distribution shall include the portion ordinarily retained for the Pick (n) carryover but not the carryover from previous performances.

9.5.7.7 The Pick (n) carryover may be capped at a designated level approved by the Commission so that if, at the close of any performance, the amount in the Pick (n) carryover equals or exceeds the designated cap, the Pick (n) carryover will be frozen until it is won or distributed under other provisions of this rule. After the Pick (n) carryover is frozen, 100 percent of the net pool, part of which ordinarily would be added to the Pick (n) carryover, shall be distributed to those whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests for that performance.

9.5.7.8 A written request for permission to distribute the Pick (n) carryover on a specific performance may be submitted to the Commission. The request must contain justification for the distribution, an explanation of the benefit to be derived, and the intended date and performance for the distribution.

9.5.16.4 If no first-half Twin Trifecta ticket selects the first three finishers of that contest in exact order, winning ticket holders shall not receive any exchange tickets for the second-half Twin Trifecta pool.

9.5.16.11 If there is a dead heat or multiple dead heats in either the first- or second-half of the Twin Trifecta, all Twin Trifecta wagers selecting the correct order of finish, counting a betting interest involved in a dead heat as finishing in any dead-heated position, shall be a winner. In the case of a dead heat occurring in:

9.5.16.11.2 the second-half of the Twin Trifecta, the payoff shall be calculated as a single price pool.

9.5.16.12 If either of the Twin Trifecta contests are canceled prior to the first Twin Trifecta contest, or the first Twin Trifecta contest is declared "no contest", the entire Twin Trifecta pool shall be refunded on Twin Trifecta wagers for that contest and the second-half shall be canceled.

If there are no such tickets, the net Twin Trifecta pool shall be distributed as described in subsection 3 of the Twin Trifecta rules.

9.5.16.14 The Twin Trifecta carryover may be capped at a designated level approved by the Commission so that if, at the close of any performance, the amount in the Twin Trifecta carryover equals or exceeds the designated cap, the Twin Trifecta carryover will be frozen until it is won or distributed under other provisions of this rule. After the Twin Trifecta carryover is frozen, 100 percent of the net Twin Trifecta pool for each individual contest shall be distributed to winners of the first-half of the Twin Trifecta pool.

If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first-, second-, and third-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first- and second-place betting interests. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first- and second-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first-place betting interest only. If there are no wagers selecting the first-place betting interest only in the first-half of the Twin Trifecta, all first-half tickets will become winners and will receive 100 percent of that days net Twin Trifecta pool and any existing Twin Trifecta carryover.

9.5.16.18 The Twin Trifecta carryover shall be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance only under the following circumstances:

The Twin Trifecta carryover plus accrued interest shall then be added to the second-half Twin Trifecta pool of the following meet on a date and performance so designated by the Commission.

9.5.16.20 Providing information to any person regarding covered combinations, amounts wagered on specific combinations, number of tickets sold, or number of valid exchange tickets is prohibited.

9.5.17.4 If no first-half Tri-Superfecta ticket selects the first three finishers of that contest in exact order, winning ticket holders shall not receive any exchange tickets for the second-half Tri-Superfecta pool.

9.5.17.7 Coupled entries and mutuel fields shall be prohibited in Tri-Superfecta contests.

9.5.17.9 Should a betting interest in the second-half of the Tri-Superfecta be scratched, an announcement concerning the scratch shall be made and a reasonable amount of time shall be provided for exchange of tickets that include the scratched betting interest. If tickets have not been exchanged prior to the close of betting for the second Tri-Superfecta contest, the ticket holder forfeits all rights to the second-half Tri-Superfecta pool.

9.5.17.10 If, due to a late scratch, the number of betting interests in the second-half of the Tri-Superfecta is reduced to fewer than the minimum, all exchange tickets and outstanding first-half winning tickets shall be entitled to the second-half Tri-Superfecta pool for that contest as a single price pool, but not the Tri-Superfecta carryover.

9.5.17.11 If there is a dead heat or multiple dead heats in either the first- or second-half of the Tri-Superfecta, all Tri-Superfecta tickets selecting the correct order of finish, counting a betting interest involved in a dead heat as finishing in any dead-heated position, shall be a winner.

9.5.17.11.1 the first-half of the Tri-Superfecta, the payoff shall be calculated as a profit split.

9.5.17.11.2 the second-half of the Tri-Superfecta, the payoff shall be calculated as a single price pool.

9.5.17.12 If either of the Tri-Superfecta contests are canceled prior to the first Tri-Superfecta contest, or the first Tri-Superfecta contest is declared "no contest", the entire Tri-Superfecta pool shall be refunded on Tri-Superfecta wagers for that contest and the second-half shall be canceled.

9.5.17.13 If the second-half Tri-Superfecta contest is canceled or declared "no contest", all exchange tickets and outstanding first-half winning Tri-Superfecta tickets shall be entitled to the net Tri-Superfecta pool for that contest as a single price pool, but not the Tri-Superfecta carryover. If no there are no such tickets, the net Tri-Superfecta pool shall be distributed as described in subsection 3 of the Tri-Superfecta rules.

9.5.17.14 The Tri-Superfecta carryover may be capped at a designated level approved by the Commission so that if, at the close of any performance, the amount in the Tri-Superfecta carryover equals or exceeds the designated cap, the Tri-Superfecta carryover will be frozen until it is won or distributed under other provisions of this rule. After the second-half Tri-Superfecta carryover is frozen, 100 percent of the net Tri-Superfecta pool for each individual contest shall be distributed to winners of the first-half of the Tri-Superfecta pool.

9.5.17.15 A written request for permission to distribute the Tri-Superfecta carryover on a specific performance may be submitted to the Commission. The request must contain justification for the distribution, an explanation of the benefit to be derived, and the intended date and performance for the distribution.

9.5.17.16 Should the Tri-Superfecta carryover be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance, the following precedence will be followed in determining winning tickets for the second-half of the Tri-Superfecta after completion of the first-half of the Tri-Superfecta:

9.5.17.16.1 As a single price pool to those whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first four betting interests; but if there are no such wagers, then

9.5.17.16.2 As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first three betting interests; but if there are no such wagers, then

9.5.17.16.3 As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first two betting interests; but if there are no such wagers, then

9.5.17.16.4 As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first-place betting interest only; but if there are no such wagers, then

9.5.17.16.5 As a single price pool to holders of valid exchange tickets.

9.5.17.16.6 As a single price pool to holders of outstanding first-half winning tickets.

9.5.17.17 Contrary to 9.5.17.4 of the Tri-Superfecta rules, during a performance designated to distribute the Tri-Superfecta carryover, exchange tickets will be issued for those combinations selecting the greatest number of betting interests in their correct order of finish for the first-half of the Tri-Superfecta. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first-, second-, and third-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first- and second-place betting interests. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first- and second-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first-place betting interest only. If there are no wagers selecting the first-place betting interest only in the first-half of the Tri-Superfecta, all first-half tickets will become winners and will receive 100 percent of that days net Tri-Superfecta pool and any existing Tri-Superfecta carryover as a single price pool.

9.5.17.18 The Tri-Superfecta carryover shall be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance only under the following circumstances:

9.5.17.18.1 Upon written approval from the Commission as provided in subsection 15 of the Tri-Superfecta rules.

9.5.17.18.2 Upon written approval from the Commission when there is a change in the carryover cap or when the Tri-Superfecta is discontinued.

9.5.17.18.3 On the closing performance of the meet or split meet.

9.5.17.19 If, for any reason, the Tri-Superfecta carryover must be held over to the corresponding Tri-Superfecta pool of a subsequent meet, the carryover shall be deposited in an interest-bearing account approved by the Commission. The Tri-Superfecta carryover plus accrued interest shall then be added to the second-half Tri-superfecta pool of the following meet on a date and performance so designated by the Commission.

9.5.17.20 Providing information to any person regarding covered combinations, amounts wagered on specific combinations, number of tickets sold, or number of valid exchange tickets is prohibited. This shall not prohibit necessary communication between totalisator and pari-mutuel department employees for processing of pool data.

9.5.17.21 The aAssociation must obtain written approval from the Commission concerning the scheduling of Tri-Superfecta contests, the percentages of the net pool added to the first-half pool and second-half pool, and the amount of any cap to be set on the carryover. Any changes to the approved Tri-Superfecta format require prior approval from the Commission.

9.5.18 Twin Superfecta Pools

9.5.18.1 The Twin Superfecta requires selection of the first four finishers, in their exact order, in each of two designated contests. Each winning ticket for the first Twin Superfecta contest must be exchanged for a free ticket on the second Twin Superfecta contest in order to remain eligible for the second-half Twin Superfecta pool. Such tickets may be exchanged only at attended ticket windows prior to the second Twin Superfecta contest. Winning first-half Twin Superfecta tickets will receive both an exchange and a monetary payoff. Both of the designated Twin Superfecta contests shall be included in only one Twin Superfecta pool.

9.5.18.2 After wagering closes for the first-half of the Twin Superfecta and commissions have been deducted from the pool, the net pool shall then be divided into two separate pools: the first-half Twin Superfecta pool and the second-half Twin Superfecta pool.

9.5.18.3 In the first Twin Superfecta contest only, winning wagers shall be determined using the following precedence, based upon the official order of finish for the first Twin Superfecta contest:

9.5.18.3.1 As a single price pool to those whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first four betting interests; but if there are no such wagers, then

9.5.18.3.2 As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first three betting interests; but if there are no such wagers, then

9.5.18.3.3 As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first two betting interests; but if there are no such wagers, then

9.5.18.3.4 As a single price pool to those whose combination correctly selected the first-place betting interest only; but if there are no such wagers, then

9.5.18.3.5 The entire Twin Superfecta pool shall be refunded on Twin Superfecta wagers for that contest and the second-half shall be canceled.

9.5.18.4 If no first-half Twin Superfecta ticket selects the first four finishers of that contest in exact order, winning ticket holders shall not receive any exchange tickets for the second-half Twin Superfecta pool. In such case, the second-half Twin Superfecta pool shall be retained and added to any existing Twin Superfecta carryover pool.

9.5.18.5 Winning tickets from the first-half of the Twin Superfecta shall be exchanged for tickets selecting the first four finishers of the second-half of the Twin Superfecta. The second-half Twin Superfecta pool shall be distributed to winning wagers in the following precedence, based upon the official order of finish for the second Twin Superfecta contest:

9.5.18.5.1 As a single price pool, including any existing carryover monies, to those whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first four betting interests; but if there are no such tickets, then

9.5.18.5.2 The entire second-half Twin Trifecta pool for that contest shall be added to any existing carryover monies and retained for the corresponding second-half Twin Superfecta pool of the next performance.

9.5.18.6 If a winning first-half Twin Superfecta ticket is not presented for cashing and exchange prior to the second-half Twin Superfecta contest, the ticket holder may still collect the monetary value associated with the first-half Twin Superfecta pool but forfeits all rights to any distribution of the second-half Twin Trifecta pool.

9.5.18.7 Coupled entries and mutuel fields shall be prohibited in Twin Superfecta contests.

9.5.18.8 Should a betting interest in the first-half of the Twin Superfecta be scratched, those Twin Superfecta tickets including the scratched betting interest shall be refunded.

9.5.18.9 Should a betting interest in the second-half of the Twin Superfecta be scratched, an announcement concerning the scratch shall be made and a reasonable amount of time shall be provided for exchange of tickets that include the scratched betting interest. If tickets have not been exchanged prior to the close of betting for the second Twin Superfecta contest, the ticket holder forfeits all rights to the second-half Twin Superfecta pool.

9.5.18.10 If, due to a late scratch, the number of betting interests in the second-half of the Twin Superfecta is reduced to fewer than the minimum, all exchange tickets and outstanding first-half winning tickets shall be entitled to the second-half Twin Superfecta pool for that contest as a single price pool, but not the Twin Superfecta carryover.

9.5.18.11 If there is a dead heat or multiple dead heats in either the first- or second-half of the Twin Superfecta, all Twin Superfecta tickets selecting the correct order of finish, counting a betting interest involved in a dead heat as finishing in any dead-heated position, shall be a winner. In the case of a dead heat occurring in:

9.5.18.11.1 the first-half of the Twin Superfecta, the payoff shall be calculated as a profit split.

9.5.18.11.2 the second-half of the Twin Superfecta, the payoff shall be calculated as a single price pool.

9.5.18.12 If the either of the Twin Superfecta contests are canceled prior to the first Twin Super-fecta contest, or the first Twin Superfecta contest is declared "no contest", the entire Twin Superfecta pool shall be refunded on Twin Superfecta wagers for that contest and the second-half shall be canceled.

9.5.18.13 If the second-half Twin Superfecta contest is canceled or declared "no contest", all exchange tickets and outstanding first-half winning Twin Superfecta tickets shall be entitled to the net Twin Superfecta pool for that contest as a single price pool, but not the Twin Superfecta carryover. If there are no such tickets, the net Twin Superfecta pool shall be distributed as described in 9.5.18.3 of the Twin Superfecta rules.

9.5.18.14 The Twin Superfecta carryover may be capped at a designated level approved by the Commission so that if, at the close of any performance, the amount in the Twin Superfecta equals or exceeds the designated cap, the Twin Superfecta carryover will be frozen until it is won or distributed under other provisions of this rule. After the second-half Twin Superfecta carryover is frozen, 100 percent of the net Twin Superfecta pool for each individual contest shall be distributed to winners of the first-half of the Twin Superfecta pool.

9.5.18.15 A written request for permission to distribute the Twin Superfecta carryover on a specific performance may be submitted to the Commission. The request must contain justification for the distribution, an explanation of the benefit to be derived, and the intended date and performance for the distribution.

9.5.18.16 Should the Twin Superfecta carryover be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance, the following precedence will be followed in determining winning tickets for the second-half of the Twin Superfecta after completion of the first-half of the Twin Superfecta:

9.5.18.16.1 As a single price pool to those whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first four betting interests; but if there are no such wagers, then

9.5.18.16.2 As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first three betting interests; but if there are no such wagers, then

9.5.18.16.3 As a single price pool to those whose combination included, in correct sequence, the first two betting interests; but if there are no such wagers, then

9.5.18.16.4 As a single price pool to those whose combination correctly selected the first-place betting interest only; but if there are no such wagers, then

9.5.18.16.5 As a single price pool to holders of valid exchange tickets.

9.5.18.16.6 As a single price pool to holders of outstanding first-half winning tickets.

9.5.18.17 Contrary to 9.5.18.4 of the Twin Superfecta rules, during a performance designated to distribute the Twin Superfecta carryover, exchange tickets will be issued for those combinations selecting the greatest number of betting interests in their correct order of finish for the first-half of the Twin Superfecta. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first-, second-, third-, and fourth-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first-, second-, and third-place betting interests. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first-, second-, and third-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first- and second- place betting interests. If there are no wagers correctly selecting the first- and second-place finishers, in their exact order, then exchange tickets shall be issued for combinations correctly selecting the first- place betting interest only. If there are no wagers selecting the first-place betting interest only in the first-half of the Twin Superfecta, all first-half tickets will become winners and will receive 100 percent of that days net Twin Superfecta pool and any existing Twin Superfecta carryover as a single price pool.

9.5.18.18 The Twin Superfecta carryover shall be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance only under the following circumstances:

9.5.18.18.1 Upon written approval from the Commission as provided in 9.5.18.15 of the Twin Superfecta rules.

9.5.18.18.2 Upon written approval from the Commission when there is a change in the carryover cap or when the Twin Superfecta is discontinued.

9.5.18.18.3 On the closing performance of the meet or split meet.

9.5.18.19 If, for any reason, the Twin Superfecta carryover must be held over to the corresponding Twin Superfecta pool of a subsequent meet, the carryover shall be deposited in an interest-bearing account approved by the Commission. The Twin Superfecta carryover plus accrued interest shall then be added to the second-half Twin Superfecta pool of the following meet on a date and performance so designated by the Commission.

9.5.18.20 Providing information to any person regarding covered combinations, amounts wagered on specific combinations, number of tickets sold, or number of valid exchange tickets is prohibited. This shall not prohibit necessary communication between totalisator and pari-mutuel department employees for processing of pool data.

9.5.18.21 The aAssociation must obtain written approval from the Commission concerning the scheduling of Twin Superfecta contests, the percentages of the net pool added to the first-half pool and second-half pool, and the amount of any cap to be set on the carryover. Any changes to the approved Twin Superfecta format require prior approval from the Commission.
