*Be aware if there are late scratches we follow track rules and if track rules give you time to cancel and re-bet please do so in a timely manner. It is your responsibility to keep track of scratches. If you place all bets and you wish to leave, this is permissible, but when you return you must check to be sure none of your selected horses have been scratched. If you wait until the last race of the day and you have a scratch and you cannot re-bet or do not have enough time to re-bet, you will be disqualified because you have not bet 9 races. You must bet 9 races/9 horses.
