Friday’s Stronach 5 Returns $2,530 With Four Favorites

Four post-time favorites were winners in Friday’s Stronach 5, and 36 winning tickets were each worth $2,520.40.

The Stronach 5 featured a low 12-percent takeout and races from Laurel Park, Santa Anita Park, Gulfstream Park and Golden Gate Fields.

The Stronach 5 started with Laurel’s eighth race, a 5 ½ furlong event originally scheduled on the turf. The race produced the largest mutuel of the sequence when Hunter Joe ($20.60) pulled off the upset over a sloppy track. Laurel’s ninth race was next and this time it was the favorite Sneakiness with Dexter Haddock ($7.20) on board visiting the winner’s circle.

Santa Anita’s third race served as the third leg of the Stronach 5 and it was 9-5 favorite No Hang Charlie ($5.80) drawing off for the win. A dozen went to post in Gulfstream’s ninth race, the fourth leg of the sequence, and it was another favorite in the 8-5 shot Greatest Glory ($5.40) winning easily. The Stronach 5 wrapped up with Golden Gate’s third race and another favorite in the even-money shot Gold Rush Gal ($4.20) drawing away down the stretch in a race with three scratches, including the morning-line favorite Delia Mo.
