Friday's edition of the Stronach 5, a national wager with a $1 minimum and industry-low takeout of 12 percent, will feature four turf races, big fields, and a guaranteed pool of $50,000.
The Stronach 5 kicks off Friday, Oct. 5 with Santa Anita's third race at 5:03 ET (2:03 PT) with a field of nine going six furlongs.
Last week's inaugural Stronach 5 rewarded 14 bettors with winning tickets of $9,888.30.
Friday's Stronach 5 sequence is:
Leg One – Santa Anita Third Race (9 horses) 5:03 ET, 2:03 PT
Leg two – Gulfstream West Eighth Race (10 horses, turf) 5:10 ET, 2:10 PT
Leg Three – Laurel Ninth Race (15 horses, turf) 5:22 ET, 2:22 PT
Leg Four: Laurel 10th Race (14 horses, turf) 5:54 ET, 2:54 PT
Leg Five – Santa Anita 5th Race (10 horses, turf) 6:08 ET, 3:08 PT
The Stronach 5 preview show, hosted by Jason Blewitt and featuring Michelle Yu, Ron Nicoletti and Stan Salter, will be available Wednesday evening at XBTV.com, LaurelPark.com, GulfstreamPark.com and SantaAnita.com. The Stronach 5 replays will be available at XBTV.com.
The minimum wager on the multi-race, multi-track Stronach 5 will be $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.
