The Stronach 5 Returns
Sep 5, 2019
Races from Laurel, Gulfstream and Golden Gate
Four on the Turf, $100,000 Guaranteed Pool
– The Stronach 5, featuring a $100,000 guaranteed pool and industry-low 12-percent takeout, returns Friday with races from Laurel Park, Gulfstream Park and Golden Gate Fields.
The sequence kicks off at 5:12 p.m. with a field of 10 Maryland-bred or Maryland-sired allowance runners going six furlongs at Laurel. The remaining four races of the Stronach 5 are all scheduled on the turf.
Friday’s races and sequence
- Leg One: Laurel Park 8th Race (10 entries, 6 furlongs): 5:12 ET, 2:12 PT
- Leg Two: Gulfstream Park 7th Race (9 entries, 1 mile turf): 5:25 ET, 2:25 PT
- Leg Three: Golden Gate Fields 4th Race (7 entries, 5 furlongs turf) 5:45 ET, 2:45 PT
- Leg Four: Laurel Park 9th Race (10 entries, 5 ½ furlong turf) 5:52 ET, 2:52 PT

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.
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.
