Friday's Stronach 5, featuring races from Gulfstream Park and Laurel Park with an industry-low 12-percent takeout, rewarded 27 bettors each with $3,259.20.
The Stronach 5 kicked off with Laurel Park's eighth race and the 2-5 shot Quit Your Moanin ($2.80) winning the opening leg and ended with Grey Manners ($8.80) winning the ninth race and closing leg at Gulfstream Park. Both races scheduled on Gulfstream's turf course were moved to the main track due to afternoon showers in South Florida.

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.
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.
