From a Maryland Jockey Club release

Friday’s Stronach 5 will have a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will feature turf races from Gulfstream Park and Santa Anita Park.

The national pick 5 sequence, with an industry-low 12-percent takeout, will begin with a one mile turf event from Gulfstream Park before heading north to Laurel Park for a claiming event with a dozen runners. The sequence wraps up with turf races at Gulfstream and Santa Anita Park.

First race post time for the Stronach 5 is 4:10 p.m.

  • Leg One – Gulfstream Park 8th Race – (16 entries, one mile turf) 4:10 ET, 1:10 PT
  • Leg Two –Laurel Park 9th Race –(12 entries, seven furlongs) 4:35 ET, 1:35PT

  • Leg Five – Santa Anita Park 4th Race – (8 entries, one mile turf) 5:30 ET, 2:30 PT


The minimum wager on the multi-race, multi-track Stronach 5 is $1. If there are no tickets with five winners, the entire pool will be carried over to the next Friday.

For the Stronach 5, if a change in racing surface is made after the wagering closes, each selection on any ticket will be considered a winning selection. If a betting interest is scratched, that selection will be substituted with the favorite in the win pool when wagering closes.

The Maryland Jockey Club serves as host of the Stronach 5.
