$496 Each for 297 Stronach 5 Winners

LAUREL, MD – There were 297 Stronach 5 winners Friday, each walking away with $496.

The coast-to-coast wager, with an industry-low 12-percent takeout and $100,000 guaranteed pool, had its higher win price in the first leg with Nate’s Tizzy returning $7.60 in Laurel Park’s ninth race. Races seven and nine at Gulfstream, both scheduled for the turf and part of the Stronach 5, were moved to the main track due to afternoon rain in South Florida.

Friday’s Stronach 5 sequence

●   Leg One –Laurel Park 9th Race –Nate’s Tizzy $7.60

●   Leg Two –Gulfstream Park 7th Race – Salambo $5

●   Leg Three – Laurel Park 10th Race – Uhwarrie Sky $7.40

●   Leg Four –Santa Anita Park 5th Race – Yes I Am Free $6.60

●   Leg Five – Gulfstream Park 9th Race – Princess Latina $4.20

The minimum wager on the multi-race, multi-track Stronach 5 is $1. If there are no tickets with five winners, the entire pool will be carried over to the next Friday.

For the Stronach 5, if a change in racing surface is made after the wagering closes, each selection on any ticket will be considered a winning selection. If a betting interest is scratched, that selection will be substituted with the favorite in the win pool when wagering closes.

The Maryland Jockey Club serves as host of the Stronach 5.
