From a Stronach Group release

There’s plenty to look forward to in Friday’s Stronach 5.

The national wager, which has a guaranteed $50,000 pool and industry-low 12-percent takeout, will feature an average field size of 11.6, three turf races, and coast-to-coast action in less than 60 minutes.

The first week of the Stronach 5 rewarded 14 bettors with winning tickets of $9,888.30. Last week the Stronach 5 returned $1,161.10 despite the highest-priced winner being $12.

This week’s Stronach 5 will begins at 4:32 ET (1:32 PT) at Gulfstream West with Race 7, a 2-year-old maiden event at 7 ½ furlongs on the turf. Here is the sequence:

  • Leg One from Gulfstream West Seventh Race (13 horses, turf) 4:32 ET, 1:32 PT
  • Leg Two from Santa Anita Third Race (13 horses, turf) 5:03 ET, 2:03 PT
