Dead Heat in Horse Racing

If two horses tie you only picked one, the stake has to be halved. If both horses win, you will get paid half your stake at the full odds: so if you have staked £10 on your horse at 10/1, your returns will be £55 (5 x 10 + 5 stake). The same will happen if 2 horses tie for the second or third place, for example, and you have placed an Each Way Bet. For three runners tied your stake is divided by three and so on.
