IRB NOTES

Illinois Racing Board

January 30, 2004

Contact: Mickey Ezzo, Mickey_Ezzo@irb.state.il.us

PROPOSED AMENDMENT

  1. Heading of the Part: Interstate Common Pools

  2. Code Citation: 11 Ill. Adm. Code 302

  3. Section Number: 302.20 Proposed Action: Amend

  4. Statutory Authority: 230 ILCS 5/9(b)

  5. A Complete Description of the Subjects and Issues Involved: Illinois utilizes two independent totalisator companies for conducting the pari-mutuel system of wagering on Illinois and out-of-state races. Section 302.20 requires that all Illinois wagers on out-of-state races be combined into one Illinois pool before transmitting to the out-of-state common pool. This method of transmitting is known as a "double-hop." The current method of transmitting pools has caused operational and reporting problems in posting the final odds after the horse race is completed. The intermediate transfer of pools between Illinois totalisator hubs has caused an unnecessary delay in the final pool transfer to the host racetrack. This rulemaking would permit both Illinois totalisator companies to transmit wagers separately as a means of minimizing delays in updating final odds.

  6. Will these proposed amendments replace emergency amendments currently in effect? No.

  7. Does this rulemaking contain an automatic repeal date? No.

  8. Do these proposed amendments contain incorporation by reference? No.

  9. Are there any other proposed amendments pending in this Part? No.

  10. Statement of Statewide Policy Objectives: No local governmental units will be required to increase expenditures.

  11. Time, Place and Manner in which interested persons may comment on this proposed rulemaking: Written comments should be submitted, within 45 days of this notice, to: Mickey Ezzo, Illinois Racing Board, 100 West Randolph, Suite 11-100, Chicago, Illinois 60601, (312) 814-5017.

  12. Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis:

    1. Types of small business affected: None
    2. Reporting, bookkeeping or other procedures required for compliance: None
    3. Types of professional skills necessary for compliance: None


  13. Regulatory Agenda which this rulemaking was summarized: This rulemaking was not included on either of the most recent two regulatory agendas because it was not anticipated when they were submitted.

In the event that an organization licensee commingles Illinois pools with the pools of an out-of-state track, all Illinois pool data shall be transmitted by the organization licensee as one pool irrespective of the number of totalizator services involved. each totalisator system used by Illinois licensees, independent and separately from any other totalisator system used by Illinois licensees.
  3. In the event that an organization licensee commingles Illinois pools with the pools of an out-of-state track, all rules in effect in the host state shall apply.
  4. In the event that an organization licensee commingles Illinois pools with the pools of an out-of-state track, if for any reason it becomes impossible to successfully merge all Illinois wagers into the interstate common pool, the organization licensee shall calculate prices and make payoffs based on Illinois handle rather than issuing refunds or making payoffs based on the sending race track's prices. the interstate host track prices shall be paid for the following pools: win, place, show, daily double, perfecta/exacta, quinella, trifecta and Pick-3. For all other wagering pools that are unsuccessfully merged, payouts shall be calculated based on the licensees' pools of the totalisator system that failed to merge with the interstate host track. All separately calculated Illinois pools shall not include the interstate host track's guaranteed minimum pool or payout, and/or carryover pool. Each individual licensee shall be responsible for its wagering pool payouts required under this rule. In all cases, the organization licensee and/or Illinois Host Track shall determine the liabilities for all licensees as agreed upon by the State Director of Mutuels. If a totalisator used by Illinois licensees is unable to successfully merge pools, a representative of that totalisator shall notify both the Host Illinois track and the Board Auditor by the start of the following race of the affected interstate host track. All Illinois licensees shall publish a copy of this subsection in their official programs.
  5. In the event that an organization licensee commingles Illinois pools with the pools of an out-of-state track, where takeout rates in the common pool are not identical to the takeout rates applicable in Illinois, the Illinois organization licensee may adopt the takeout rate of the sending state or utilize the net price calculation method.
  6. An interstate commission fee shall exceed 5% only for Grade 1 thoroughbred races and only for harness races with purses exceeding $200,000.
  7. g) All Illinois licensees shall provide the Board with pari-mutuel data by way of electronic transmission in a Board prescribed format.
