(1)With the prior approval of the commission, a race meet licensee licensed to conduct pari-mutuel wagering may determine that one or more of its contests be utilized for pari-mutuel wagering at guest facilities in other states, and may also determine that pari-mutuel pools in guest states be combined with corresponding wagering pools established by it as the host track or comparable wagering pools established by two or more states.
(2)Where takeout rates in the merged pool are not identical, the net price calculation shall be the method by which the differing takeout rates are applied.
(3)Rules of racing established for races held in this state shall also apply to interstate common pools unless the commission shall have specifically otherwise determined.
(4)The commission shall approve agreements made between the race meet licensee and other participants in interstate common pools governing the distribution of breakage between the jurisdictions.
(5)Any contract for interstate common pools entered into by the race meet licensee shall contain a provision to the effect that if, for any reason, it becomes impossible to successfully merge the bets placed in another state into the interstate common pool formed by the race meet licensee, or if, for any reason, the commission’s or the race meet licensee’s representative determines that attempting to effect transfer of pool data from the guest state may endanger the race meet licensee’s wagering pool, the race meet licensee shall have no liability for any measures taken which may result in the guest’s wagers not being accepted into the pool.
