LAUREL, Md. – Races from Laurel Park and Gulfstream Park, including three on the turf, will comprise Friday’s Stronach 5, a national wager featuring a $100,000 guaranteed pool and industry-low 12-percent takeout.

The sequence concludes on the Fort Marcy approximately an hour later with fillies and mares also going six furlongs. The second leg of the Stronach 5, Gulfstream’s sixth race, is the $55,000 Paradise Creek for 3-year-olds and up at a mile on the turf with stakes winner Renaisance Frolic, graded-stakes placed Tizzarunner, stakes-placed Forever Mo, and Sailing Solo.
