An unusual wagering occurrence during this past Friday night’s third race from Woodbine Racetrack resulted in a number of winning tickets being refunded.
It was discovered that money wagered from Western Fair had not made it into the Woodbine pools in time for the third race, which resulted in the refund of the money that was wagered. The problem occurred due to a communication failure between the tote company and the host.
In the meantime, Western Fair management wishes to advise its customers who had winning tickets, or those eligible for refunds, that those tickets will be honoured by Western Fair Raceway.
CPMA rules state that in instances such as this, for bets that cannot be combined into a host track’s pools before the end of a race, Federal Regulations require that such bets must be refunded. Refunding bets at some sites may affect odds and payouts at other locations.
A number of customers have already come forward. Once again, those who have not as of yet can contact the track immediately to be reimbursed.
