– Friday’s Stronach 5 became the Stronach 4 when heavy rains forced the cancellation of four races at Pimlico Race Course, including the ninth race and second leg of the national pick five.
After Smoovie won the sixth race at Santa Anita Park and the final leg of the Stronach 5, 41 bettors would each win $2,685.60.
With the Pimlico ninth race being an ‘all,’ the winning combination was 7/ALL/6/3,7,12,13,14/1.

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.
