Stronach Five: Four Tracks, Four Turf Races Featured In Friday’s Wager

The popular Stronach 5, featuring an industry-low 12-percent takeout, will feature four tracks and four turf races Friday, including the $75,000 Bert Allen Stakes and $75,000 Punch Line Stakes from Laurel Park.

Along with races from Laurel, Gulfstream Park West, Santa Anita Park and Golden Gate Park, the Stronach 5 will also have a $100,000 guaranteed pool.

The Stronach 5 begins at 3:58 ET with a dozen claimers going 6 ½ furlongs on the main track at Gulfstream Park West before the action moves to Laurel Park and a pair of $75,000 stakes on the turf for Virginia breds.

The Bert Allen, at 1 1/16 miles, features Largent, a son of Into Mischief who won the Edward P. Evans at Colonial Downs and was second in the Lure Stakes Sept. 7 at Saratoga. The 5 ½ furlong Punch Line drew a field of 14 including Embolden, second in the Edward P. Evans and fourth Aug. 29 in the Saranac (G3) at Saratoga.

The Stronach 5 wraps up out west with maiden California-bred or sired 2-year-olds going a mile on the turf, and 2-year-old maidens also going a mile on turf at Golden Gate Fields.
