I have to ask what happens in Argentina when you use a mobile start and a horse resfuses to come to the starting gate as soon as it begins moving. Do punters lose their wager, do you have a recall or what?

In Canada, they have a fair start rule where if a horse is 200 feet or more behind at the start he races but is scratched for wagering purposes. In the United States, if that situation happens, you lose your bet while people are still wagering, even when the horse refuses the gate or goes off stride a quarter mile before the start of the race.

In NJ, the racing commission voted down the implementation of a fair start rule which is what makes me ask what gets done in Argentina? Any assistance you can provide would be appreciated.

If there are any other South American countries with harness racing, what they do in this situation would be helpful as well.
