Friday's Stronach 5 Returns $7,144.80
Races from Santa Anita, Golden Gate, Laurel and Gulfstream West
LAUREL, MD –Friday’s Stronach 5, which included a $43.80 winner from Laurel Park, returned $7,144.80.
There were 14 winning tickets.
The popular wager featured races from Santa Anita Park, Golden Gate Fields, Laurel Park and Gulfstream Park West along with an industry-low 12-percent takeout and $100,000 guaranteed pool.
The opening leg of the Stronach 5 was Gulfstream West’s eighth race, won by favored Guaco ($3.40). But the second leg, Laurel’s seventh race, resulted in a $43.80 winner in Marden, saddled by leading trainer Claudio Gonzalez. Laurel’s eighth race, the third leg, resulted in another longshot winner in Why Not You ($16.20).
The Stronach 5 then headed west with Reddam Racing, LLC’s Me Likey ($7.80), a 2-year-old by Square Eddie, winning Santa Anita’s third race in his racing debut. Golden Gate’s third race anchored the Stronach 5 with even-money favorite Homegrown ($4.20) the victor.
