Thursday, July 23, 2020
    LAUREL, MD  - Competitive fields and a $100,000 guaranteed pool highlight Friday’s Stronach 5.

    The five-race wager will feature three races from Laurel Park – all scheduled on the turf – and two from Gulfstream Park. The Stronach 5, with an industry-low 12-percent takeout, begins at 3:23 p.m. with a field of 10 claimers in Laurel’s sixth race going 5 ½ furlongs on the Fort Marcy Turf Course.

    The sequence ends a little more than an hour later with a dozen 3-year-olds and up in Laurel’s eighth race going 1 1/16 miles once again on the Fort Marcy Turf Course.

    Gulfstream’s eighth race is the only race in the sequence on the main track and will serve as the second leg in the sequence while Gulfstream’s ninth race, the fourth leg in the sequence, is scheduled for five furlongs on the turf.
