Formful Stronach 5 Yields Multiple $617.80 Payoffs

LAUREL, MD – The Stronach 5 returned multiple payoffs of $617.80 following a rather formful sequence Friday.

The Stronach 5, the multi-race, multi-track wager that features an industry-low 12 percent takeout, offered a sequence with three straight races from Gulfstream Park, followed by two from Golden Gate Fields. There were 146 tickets that correctly selected all five winners.

The Stronach 5 sequence was kicked off at Gulfstream Park with a late-closing victory by Bob Hess Jr.-trained C’Mon Karen ($8.80) in Race 7, a six-furlong starter optional claiming allowance. Making his first start for trainer Carlos David, Grade 1-placed Kroy ($4.60) won the second leg of the Stronach 5 in Race 8 at Gulfstream via the disqualification of the first-place finisher, Til The End, in the featured 1 1/16-mile optional claiming allowance on turf. Christophe Clement-trained Mumbai ($3.20) captured Gulfstream’s Race 9, a maiden special weight event for 3-year-olds on turf, before the Stronach 5 action switched to Golden Gate Fields for the final two legs.

Blaine Wright-trained Wahasha ($11) registered a front-running victory in Golden Gate Fields’ Race 3, a five-furlong sprint for $8,000 claiming maidens, before Jonathan Wong-trained Tyler’s Tek ($10.40) closed out the Stronach 5 sequence with a victory in Race 4, a mile turf race for $6,250 claimers.
