Laurel’s ninth race, a maiden event at six furlongs for 2-year-olds, was the third leg of the Stronach 5 and American Playboy, off at 12-1 under jockey Jorge Ruiz, drove past 3-5 favorite Bust’em Kurt for the victory.

The Stronach 5 went west to Santa Anita for the final two legs. The third race at Santa Anita for maiden 3-year-olds and up going six furlongs went to the 5-2 second choice Miss Tokyo for trainer Leonard Powell and jockey Umberto Rispoli.
