In the event of cancellation, the Owners of horses that did not scratch by cancellation time get their nomination and entry fee (by Division) plus $200 of the VLT Purse Supplement paid out to them due to the cancellation. The remaining VLT Purse Support Allocation after $200 per horse is deducted must be returned to the Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association. When returning the remainder, please provide an accounting outlining the scratched horses and paid-out horses. For the Ohio Fairs Fund Allocation those funds must be returned in full to the Ohio Department of Agriculture in the event of a cancellation
