Races from Laurel, Santa Anita, Golden Gate and Gulfstream
$108 All-Star Ticket
BALTIMORE, MD – The popular Stronach 5 will have a $97,891.79 carryover Friday afternoon and feature an industry-low 12-percent takeout and races from Laurel Park, Santa Anita Park, Golden Gate Fields and Gulfstream Park.
The Stronach 5 begins at 3:55 ET with Laurel’s eighth race, a maiden event for 3-year-olds at seven furlongs. Portal One, trained by High McMahon, is the morning-line choice and will be ridden by Ferrin Peterson. Four 3-year-olds making their debuts come from the barns of Dale Capuano, Lacey Gaudet, Rudolfo Sanchez-Solomon and Sean McDermott.
The Stronach 5 stays at Laurel for the ninth race and the second leg of the sequence. The claiming event for non-winners of two at 1 1/16 mile has a 5-2 favorite in Ego Trip.
Santa Anita’s third race, a claiming event at seven furlongs, serves as the third leg of the sequence. Tobacco Road is a tepid 3-1 favorite dropping down in class. Trainer Art Sherman sends out Awhitesportcoat first time off the claim. The third race at Golden Gate, a claiming event for non-winners of two, has a 6-5 favorite in Extractor from the barn of Jonathan Wong.
The Stronach 5 wraps up at Gulfstream with its 10th race, a wide-open maiden claimer at five furlongs on the turf. Winnipeg Wonder is 3-1 and has blinkers off for trainer Murat Sancal.
