Friday's Stronach 5 Returns $27,630
LAUREL, MD – Five winning tickets in Friday’s Stronach 5 each returned $27,631.10.
The Stronach 5, featuring three races from Laurel Park and one each from Gulfstream Park and Golden Gate Fields, had a $100,000 guaranteed pool, an industry-low 12-percent takeout, and continues to provide a strong return on investment.
Friday’s sequence began with Laurel’s seventh race and Royal Thunder ($18.20) winning off the claim for trainer Carlos Mancilla. That was followed by Gulfstream’s ninth race and first-time starter Viburnum ($23.40) winning for trainer Kelsey Danner. The Stronach 5 concluded with the second race from Golden Gate Fields and a game victory by Heatsky ($9.60).
The largest payoff in the sequence was Viburnum, while the shortest price was Cannon’s Roar ($7), winning Laurel’s eighth race.
