Three Bettors Each Win $47,721 in Friday’s Stronach 5

LAUREL, MD –The Stronach 5 proved very rewarding to three bettors Friday as each walked away with $47,721.30.
The unique, national pick 5 kicked off with Fast Enough, a 2-year-old gelded son of Eddington making his career debut, winning the third race at Santa Anita Park. After turf races from Laurel Park and Gulfstream Park, the Stronach 5 headed back to California where the longshot Startender ($37) won the fifth race at Golden Gate Fields.
The sequence ended back at Gulfstream where Trieste, an 11-1 shot, took the ninth race.
The Stronach 5 features a $100,000 guaranteed pool and industry-low 12-percent takeout.
