Stronach 5: Friday Wager Sees Three Winning Tickets Each Worth $47,117

There were only three winning tickets in Friday’s Stronach 5, and each was worth $47,117.10.

The popular wager, with an industry-low 12-percent takeout and $100,000 guaranteed pool, featured races from Laurel Park, Gulfstream Park and Golden Gate Fields, and two of the five races in the Stronach 5 produced $50 winners.

Friday’s Stronach 5 started with a bang when Palm Reader, a 24-1 shot, wore down pacesetter Sailingintothewind inside the final 50 yards to win Laurel’s seventh race on the turf and return $50.20.

After Alastor ($6.60) won Gulfstream’s ninth race, Bunting ($7.40) won Laurel’s eighth race and Mayan Queen ($6.40) was triumphant in Laurel’s ninth, the sequence ended at Golden Gate Fields and 25-1 longshot Hula King ($53.40) winning the second race
