Dead heats.

(1) In a dead heat for first place, each horse will be declared a winner and the actual earning the horse receives will be used to determine future eligibilities.
(2) When a dead heat occurs for first place, all purses or prizes to which the first and second place horses would have been entitled to will be divided equally among them. This will apply in dividing all purses or prizes, whatever number of horses are involved in the dead heat, and for whatever places the dead heat is run.
(3) When a dead heat is run for second place and an objection or inquiry is made against the winner of the race, and the winner is disqualified, the horses that finished in the dead heat for place will both be declared winners. This will apply when determining the official placing, whatever number of horses is involved in the dead heat, and for whatever places the dead heat is run.
(4) If the owners involved in a dead heat cannot agree as to which of them is to receive a trophy, plaque, or other prize that cannot be divided, the decision will be determined by lot by the stewards or their designee.
