$81 All-Star Ticket
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Four turf races, average fields of 11.2, and a $100,000 guaranteed pool make up Friday’s competitive and exciting Stronach 5
The Stronach 5, featuring races from Laurel Park and Gulfstream Park Friday, continues to offer a strong return on investment. Consider last week when the Stronach 5 returned $12,804 with the highest-price winner being $12.20.
The action kicks off at 3:19 p.m. and Laurel’s sixth race with a dozen maiden claimers going 5 12 furlongs on the Dahlia Turf Course. The only race scheduled on the main track is Laurel’s seventh, a 6 ½ furlong for 3-year-olds and up. Laurel’s eighth race, which concludes the Stronach 5 sequence, is an allowance event over a 5 ½ furlong course.
Both of Gulfstream’s races – the eighth and ninth – and five furlong turf events for claimers 3 and up.

The minimum wager on the multi-race, multi-track Stronach 5 is $1. If there are no tickets with five winners, the entire pool will be carried over to the next Friday.
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.
