A week after featuring five turf races, Friday's Stronach 5 will take to the main tracks at Laurel Park, Gulfstream Park and Golden Gate Fields with a $100,000 guaranteed pool and 12-percent takeout.
Friday's sequence will begin at Laurel Paul at 5:12 p.m. when a field of nine 2-year-old maidens go six furlongs. The action shifts to Gulfstream for the second leg with Florida-bred claimers going six furlongs. The third leg will feature a dozen 3-year-olds and up going six furlongs on the all-weather at Golden Gate Fields. After a claiming race for fillies and mares at a mile at Laurel, the sequence will wrap up at Gulfstream with state-bred 2-year-olds maidens going six furlongs.

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.
