LAUREL, Md. – There were 19 winning tickets in Friday’s Stronach 5, each returning $3,871.
The Stronach 5 featured races from Gulfstream Park, Laurel Park and Golden Gate Fields.
Slewys Chosen One ($13.60) got the Stronach 5 started by winning Gulfstream’s fifth race, taken off the turf and run over the main track. The second and third legs of the Stronach 5 were contested at Laurel with Moquist ($5.60) winning the eighth race and Shady Munni ($6) winning the ninth race.
Gulfstream’s seventh race, the fourth leg of the sequence also taken off the turf, went to the 6-1 shot Easy Come Easy Go ($15), who drove past 2-1 favorite Sister Lou Ann inside the final sixteenth. The second race at Golden Gate Fields served as the finale of the Stronach 5, and the 3-5 favorite Concise Advice ($3.20) made it look easy while driving away down the stretch.
