LAUREL, MD – Friday’s Stronach 5 will feature a $100,000 guaranteed pool, a 12-percent takeout, and races from four tracks with three of those contests run on the turf.
The Stronach 5 kicks off this week at 4:19 p.m. with Gulfstream Park’s seventh race, a five-furlong turf event for 3-year-olds and up with a $35,000 claiming price. The second leg will be Laurel Park’s ninth race with a field of 12 going 5 ½ furlongs on the main track. After a return to Gulfstream for the ninth race, a 7 ½-furlong turf event with 13 entered, the Stronach 5 heads to California for races at Golden Gate Fields and Santa Anita, where maiden fillies and mares go 1 1/8th miles on the turf in the final leg.
