What happens to my bets if my horse is scratched?
NYRA Bets follows the rules in the jurisdiction where the host track is located. Refunds will be issued or post-time favorites will be assigned in accordance with the host track’s policies for handling scratches. If you have already placed a wager that includes that horse, your ticket will be changed based on the rules at that track concerning scratches. Your ticket will usually either be cancelled or the scratched horse will be replaced with the current favorite for that race. The decision of the host track is final and it is ultimately the track’s discretion if a certain wager will be refunded or if a scratch warrants a post-time favorite or consolation payout. Additionally, if your ticket is cancelled, any Reward Points that would have been earned are also cancelled.
General rules for scratches are as follows:
Single Race Wagers (Exacta/Quinella/Trifecta/Superfecta/Super-Hi-5/Win/Place/Show): All wagers on scratched horses are refunded.
Pick 4/Pick 5/Pick 6/Grand Slam: If your horse is scratched in ANY LEG, you will receive the post-time favorite, providing your wager is live going into the leg from which your horse is scratched.
Doubles/Pick 3 in Major circuits (NY, FL, KY CA, LA, NJ and others): If your horse is scratched BEFORE the first leg is run, you will receive a refund. If your wager is still live going into the second or third leg and your horse is scratched, you will receive a consolation payoff, providing your wager wins the other two legs.
Doubles/Pick 3 in other circuits (PA, AR, NM, TX, IL, MN, Canada, and others): If your horse is scratched in ANY LEG, you will receive the post-time favorite, providing your wager is live going into the leg from which your horse is scratched. If you already have the post-time favorite included in your wager and have more than one horse included in that leg (and one or more of your horses are scratched), you will receive the post-time favorite for each horse that is scratched.
These rules can change based on the tracks’ decision.
