Lots of Winners in Friday's Stronach 5
863 Winning Tickets
BALTIMORE, MD – Short prices resulted in 863 winning tickets in Friday’s Stronach 5 with each ticket worth $196.30.
The Stronach 5 featured races from Gulfstream Park, Santa Anita Park and Laurel Park as well as an industry-low 12-percent takeout and two stakes races.
The sequence started with Laurel’s eighth race and Belle Tapisserie ($7) winning off the claim for trainer Kieron Magee. The $2.50-1 Belle Tapisserie turned out to be the largest-priced winner of the day.
The $75,000 Janus, run as Gulfstream’s ninth race and the second leg of the sequence, was won by 4-5 favorite Imprimis ($3.60), coming off a horrible trip in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) in which he was stopped and steadied down the stretch.
The third leg of the sequence was Laurel’s ninth race and 2-5 favorite Lady Fox ($2.80) won as easy as she pleased for the Claudio Gonzalez barn. The fourth leg of the Stronach 5 moved to Santa Anita and its third race. Translate ($3.40), a 4-year-old who had finished second in all three of her previous starts at Belmont Park, broke through and made it to the winner’s circle.
The Stronach 5 wrapped up at Gulfstream with the $75,000 Cash Run. Gulf Coast ($6.40), second last out in the Sandpiper at Tampa Bay and a $300,000 yearling, rolled to his second win in three starts.
