Inaugural Stronach 5 Pays Out $9,888 To 14 Bettors Friday

The inaugural running of The Stronach 5, a national Pick 5 wager with an industry-low 12 percent takeout and a guaranteed pool of $50,000, was hit by 14 bettors Friday, each winning $9,888.30.

A total of $157,333 was wagered on races from Laurel Park, Santa Anita Park, Gulfstream Park and Golden Gate Fields. The minimum wager is $1. The winning numbers Friday were 7.3.9.8.1.

The results were:

● Leg One from Laurel Park Race 9: Bay of Rocks $8.20

● Leg Two from Santa Anita Park Race 4: Streak of Luck $17

● Leg Three from Gulfstream Park Race 8: Field Trip $6.20

● Leg Four from Golden Gate Fields Race 4: Impecunious $16

● Leg Five from Gulfstream Race 9: S S Illuminati $11

“We are happy with the results from the inaugural running of The Stronach 5,” said Tim Ritvo, Chief Operating Officer of The Stronach Group. “Unfortunately, there was a gate scratch in the first leg at Laurel, but to have five races at four tracks in under an hour and attract the handle we did the first week is a good start. We will tweak some things as we move forward. We want to thank the fans for their participation.”

The first 100 fans at participating tracks received a Quick Pick ticket on the Stronach 5 with the purchase of a program.

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 Stronach 5 races will be drawn Sunday
