CONDITIONAL WAGERING TERMS & CONDITIONS
To place conditional wagers, please read and agree to the following terms and conditions:
CONDITIONAL WAGERING SERVICE
The TwinSpires Conditional Wagering Service allows a player to: (1) Set the minimum and maximum odds/probable payoff criteria that must be satisfied (between the scheduled timeframe) before the wager is sent to tote for processing; and (2) Schedule the timing (relative to minutes-to-post) of when the odds/probable payoff criteria should begin to be evaluated. If the minimum and maximum odds/probable payoff criteria (as defined by the player) are satisfied anytime between the user-defined MTP and the close of wagering for the race, the bet is sent to tote for processing. Otherwise, the conditional wager ‘fails’ and no bet is placed. Conditional wagers are currently available for Win, Daily Double, Exacta, and Quinella wagers. Conditional ‘Win’ wagers are restricted to bets involving a single betting interest. Conditional ‘Exacta’, ‘Quinella’, or ‘Daily Double’ wagers are restricted to a single (‘straight’) combination consisting of exactly two betting interests. Account balances are not debited until the conditional wager has been successfully accepted by tote. In the event your account balance does not have the funds needed when being processed by tote, the wager will ‘fail’. Tote will reject the wager because of insufficient funds.
If your account balance does not have sufficient funds to satisfy multiple conditional wagers made on the same race with the same scheduled timeframe (relative to minutes-to-post), the wagers will be processed in the order that (i) the condition is satisfied and (ii) the wagers were created. Conditional wagers which have not yet been sent to tote for processing (‘Open’ conditional wagers) may optionally be cancelled by the user. To cancel an ‘Open’ conditional wager, navigate to the active tab of ‘My Bets’ and locate the conditional wager ticket. Click the trash can icon associated with the ‘Open’ wager. If the cancellation is successful, the conditional wager will move from the active tab to the ended tab of ‘My Bets’.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
The TwinSpires Conditional Wagering Service is provided on an ‘AS IS’ and ‘AS AVAILABLE’ basis. TwinSpires does not warrant that the service will be uninterrupted or error-free. Conditional wagers are dependent upon the receipt of accurate and timely tote information (odds, probable payoffs, minutes-to-post, etc.) from third party tote providers. TwinSpires does not guarantee the accuracy of the tote information. If the tote information used for processing conditional wagers is subsequently deemed to be inaccurate, in no way shall TwinSpires be liable for damages whether direct, indirect, incidental, exemplary, punitive, special or consequential, including, but not limited to loss of revenue, anticipated profits or other economic loss, whether foreseeable or not, in connection with or arising out of the availability, existence, furnishing, or functioning of any conditional wagering services (including, but not limited to, any conditional wagers that were sent or not sent, to tote for processing).
Conditional wagers accepted by tote may not ultimately satisfy the minimum/maximum odds or probable payoff since final odds and payoff information cannot be determined until all wagers have been placed into the pari-mutuel pool.
Conditional wagers may not always be successfully sent to tote for processing. For a variety of reasons, your conditional wager may take longer to execute (or may have less available time to execute) than what is normally expected. TwinSpires provides the service on a commercially reasonable basis and does not guarantee that your conditional wager will always be able to be executed.
In the event of a temporary tote outage or some other technical or mechanical issue affecting the processing of conditional wagers, the odds or probable payoffs may not be able to be evaluated at the designated time. In this event, the conditional wager may be evaluated when updated tote information is available, or may be evaluated with the most recent odds/probable payoff information available, or may not be processed at all.
NOTICE OF APPLICABLE LAW

OTHER NOTICES OF INFORMATION
TAX REPORTING AND WITHHOLDING
In keeping with all Federal Tax Laws set forth by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), any wager that results in winnings of $600.00 will be reported to the IRS, if the amount of winnings is at least 300 times the original amount wagered. Any wager resulting in winnings over $5,000.00, is subject to reporting and withholding if the amount of winnings is at least 300 times the original amount wagered. In each case, the original amount wagered shall include all wagers placed in a single pari-mutuel pool and represented on a single electronic record, which shall be aggregated and treated as a single wager for purposes of determining the amount of the wager. When required, TwinSpires.com will report and withhold winnings. A Form W2-G will be sent to the account holder summarizing such activity.
Except where provided otherwise by the Oregon Racing Commission, in no event will TwinSpires.com, Churchill Downs Incorporated, or our suppliers be liable for lost profits or any special, incidental, exemplary, punitive, or consequential damages arising out of or in connection with our services (however arising, including negligence). Without limiting the foregoing, in no event shall our liability to you and any third parties in any circumstance exceed the amount of the wager you placed, and our liability shall be limited to the fullest extent allowable by applicable law or statute.
These Terms and Conditions and all transactions conducted with TwinSpires.com are governed by the laws of the State of Oregon, with the exception of the Arbitration Provision listed below under “DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION,” which shall instead be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq., notwithstanding any state or foreign law or rule, and irrespective of any choice of law provision. By using our website and wagering system you consent to the application of Oregon law governing account wagering. Any disputes or claims alleging non-payment will be resolved according to the rules issued by the Oregon Racing Commission.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION
Please read this provision (“Arbitration Provision”) carefully, because it requires you to arbitrate disputes with TwinSpires.com and it limits the manner in which you can seek relief, unless you opt out of this Arbitration Provision.
For purposes of this Arbitration Provision, all references to “TwinSpires.com” includes its parent, affiliates, subsidiaries, employees, owners, agents, officers, directors, successors, and assigns. Churchill Downs Incorporated, the parent company of TwinSpires.com, is an intended third party beneficiary of this Arbitration Provision.
Unless you specifically opt out using the procedures in the section below entitled “Your Right to Opt Out of Arbitration,” you agree to the Arbitration Provision set forth herein. Whether to agree to arbitration is an important decision. It is your decision to make and you should not rely solely on the information provided in this Agreement, as it is not intended to contain a complete explanation of the consequences of agreeing to this Arbitration Provision. You should take reasonable steps to conduct further research and to consult with others regarding the consequences of your decision.
For Minnesota Residents only, please also see the second to last paragraph of these Terms and Conditions.
Scope of Arbitration Provision. You and TwinSpires.com agree to resolve by binding individual arbitration any past, present, or future dispute, claim, or controversy of any kind or nature arising out of, relating to, or in connection with your access to or use of TwinSpires.com or to these Terms and Conditions (including without limitation any dispute concerning the breach, enforcement, construction, validity, interpretation, enforceability, or arbitrability of these Terms and Conditions), that you may have against TwinSpires.com. This arbitration provision shall not apply to a dispute if an agreement to arbitrate such a dispute is prohibited by governing law.
Waiver of Right to Trial and Waiver Class, Collective, or Representative Action. You and TwinSpires.com agree to waive (1) the right to a trial before a judge or jury in federal, state, or local court in favor of arbitration under this Arbitration Provision, and (2) any right to participate in any class, collective, or representative action, whether in court or arbitration, covering any dispute, controversy, or claim to which this Arbitration Provision applies.
Any claims subject to this Arbitration Provision shall be decided by an arbitrator on an individual basis only. Class, collective and representative actions are not permitted under this Arbitration Provision. The arbitrator shall not have the authority or jurisdiction to join or consolidate claims of different parties into a single proceeding, or to adjudicate any class, collective, or representative action.
Location of Arbitration, Applicable Rules, and Selection of Arbitrator. You and TwinSpires.com agree that any arbitration shall occur in the county in which you reside. You may request to appear at the arbitration telephonically or via videoconference. You and TwinSpires.com agree that such arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator in accordance with the Streamlined Rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”). The current Streamlined Rules of JAMS are available here: http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/.
The arbitrator shall be a retired federal or state judicial officer who presided in the state where the arbitration will be conducted. If the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator, the selection process of JAMS shall apply.
Initiating an Arbitration. The party seeking to bring a claim under this Arbitration Provision must demand arbitration in writing and deliver the written demand, with an original physical signature, by hand or first class mail to the other party (the “Demand for Arbitration”). Any Demand for Arbitration submitted with a digital, electronic, copied, or other non-original signature will be null and void. The Demand for Arbitration shall include an identification of the parties, a statement of the legal and factual basis of the claim(s), and a specification of the remedy sought. Any Demand for Arbitration made to TwinSpires.com shall be provided to by U.S. Mail, or by any nationally recognized delivery service (e.g., UPS, Federal Express, etc.), or by hand delivery to: 600 N. Hurstbourne Parkway, Suite 400, Louisville, Kentucky 40222.
Authority of Arbitrator; Delegation Provision. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award any form of remedy or relief that would otherwise be available in court in an individual action, but under no circumstances shall the arbitrator have the authority to award any relief on a class, collective, or representative basis.
Other than the issue of whether an arbitration initiated under this Arbitration Provision can proceed on a class, collective, or representative basis rather than an individual basis (which may only be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction, and not the arbitrator), the parties agree that all disputes relating to the applicability, legality, enforceability, revocability, waiver of, or validity of this Arbitration Provision, including, but not limited to, whether any dispute or claim falls within the scope of this Arbitration Provision, and all disputes regarding the timeliness or propriety of the Demand for Arbitration, shall be delegated to and resolved exclusively by the arbitrator, to the fullest extent permissible under law, and not a court.
A judgment upon the final award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof. However, in any arbitration award issued in an arbitration conducted in accordance with this arbitration provision, the arbitrator shall specify a reasonable time within which the final award shall be satisfied, and no party may seek to confirm the award until the time specified for satisfaction has expired. If the final award is satisfied during the specified time, no party shall seek to confirm the award.
Paying for the Arbitration. Unless otherwise required by any applicable law, the parties to the arbitration shall share equally the fees and expenses of the arbitrator, as well as the costs of any facility used in connection with the arbitration. If required by any applicable law, TwinSpires.com shall pay any costs uniquely associated with arbitration and that you would not have to pay if pursuing an action in court.
Confidentiality. You and TwinSpires.com shall maintain as confidential the arbitration proceedings and the arbitration award, including the arbitration hearing and all documents submitted to the arbitrator, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, or in connection with seeking from a court any preliminary remedies, enforcement of this Arbitration Provision, or confirmation of an arbitrator’s award, or unless otherwise required by law or judicial decision.

Be Smart – Bet Smart – Wager Responsibly
For many people, betting on the horses is exciting and entertaining. They make thoughtful decisions about spending time and money.
Here are some tips to follow in order to wager responsibly:
Balance playing the horses with other leisure activities
Play the horses for entertainment, not as a way to make money.
Do not “chase” losses. Accept them as the cost of entertainment.
Use extra income to wager, not money needed for everyday expenses.
Set a time limit.
Responsible wagering is what most people practice on a daily basis. For some, however, wagering or gambling becomes a serious problem that they are unable to control. This can lead to a state of compulsive or pathological gambling. Pathological gamblers cannot resist the temptation to gamble; they cannot stop regardless of their jobs, families or anything else.
How can you tell if you or someone you know has a gambling problem?
Have you often gambled longer than you had planned?
Have you often gambled until your last dollar was gone?
Have thoughts of gambling caused you to lose sleep?
Have you used your income or savings to gamble while letting bills go unpaid?
Have you made repeated, unsuccessful attempts to stop gambling?
Have you broken the law or considered breaking the law to finance your gambling?
Have you borrowed money to finance your gambling?
Have you felt depresses or suicidal because of your gambling losses?
Have you been remorseful after gambling?
Have you gambled to get money to meet your financial obligations?
If you or someone you know answered yes to any of these questions and needs help for a gambling problem, call today.
