Seite xl - C., who is the handicapper, makes a match for A. and B., who, when they have perused it, put their hands into their pockets, and draw them out closed ; then they open them together, and if both have money in their hands, the match is confirmed ; if neither have money, it is no match. In both cases the handicapper draws all the money out of the hat ; but if one has money in his hand, and the other none, then it is no match, and he that has money in his hand is entitled to the deposit in the hat.
Seite xlii - In running of heats, if it cannot be decided which horse is first, the heat goes for nothing, and they may all start again, except it be between two horses that had each won a heat.
Seite xli - If a party is absent on the day of running, a public declaration of the bet may be made on the course, and a demand whether any person will make stakes for the absent party ; if no person consents to it the bet may be declared void.
Seite xliv - ... horse that won a clear heat— one of the distanced horses had won the first heat. It was decided that the winning horse cannot be deemed the second horse, and therefore was not entitled to the stakes ; and all the others being distanced, no other person could claim them.
