You must be 21 to place a wager on a horse or greyhound race.
In rare situations simulcast technology has failed and this has prevented the wagering information to be transmitted from Arizona to the out-of-state track in a timely manner. When this occurs, the non-Arizona track has the authority to reject Arizona wagers. The Arizona Administrative Code [R19-2-522(B)(6)] offers alternatives to the tracks in handling this situation. All of the Arizona tracks currently choose to refund all wagers when this happens.
Since all wagers made in Arizona are commingled with the out-of-state track providing the signal, the out-of-state track makes the decisions as to disqualifications, official results and payoffs. If the race is run in Arizona, Arizona officials make those determinations.
