.12 Dead Heats.

A. When two horses run a dead heat for first place, all prizes to which first and second horses would have been entitled shall be divided equally between them; this applies in dividing prizes, whatever the number of horses running a dead heat and whatever places for which the dead heat is run. Each horse shall be deemed a winner and liable to penalty for the amount he shall receive.

B. When a dead heat is run for second place, and an objection is made to the winner of the race, and sustained, the horses which ran the dead heat shall be deemed to have run a dead heat for first place.

C. If the dividing owners cannot agree as to which of them is to have a cup or other prize which cannot be divided, the question shall be determined by lot by the stewards.

D. On a dead heat for a match, the match is off.
