Friday's Stronach 5, which concluded with a $20.20 winner at Golden Gate Fields, returned $15,765.50 to five bettors.
There was $89,630 bet into the Stronach 5, a national wager with a guaranteed $50,000 pool and an industry-low 12-percent takeout. The second leg of the Stronach 5 produced a $16.80 winner at Santa Anita in Take a Leap.
Friday's Stronach 5 sequence and winners were:
- Leg One – Gulfstream West Seventh Race Hollywood Overdogs $4.60
- Leg Two – Santa Anita Third Race Take a Leap $16.80
- Leg Three – Gulfstream West Eighth Race Green Mansions $9.60
- Leg Four – Laurel 10th Race Silver Dagger $4.60
- Leg Five – Golden Gate Fifth Race Kid Cantina $20.20
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.
