LAUREL, MD - Mark Friday, Feb. 28 on your calendar. That’s the day the popular Stronach 5 will have a carryover of $167,951.23.
Since there were no winners in Friday’s Stronach 5, the entire pool carries over to next week.
Friday’s sequence kicked with a $17 winner in Laurel’s eighth race in Unequivocal.
And the prices kept coming.
Lovely Lucy ($12.40) won Gulfstream’s seventh race, Admiral Boom ($27.20) won Golden Gate’s third race and Encountress returned $46 in Santa Anita’s third race. The final leg, Gulfstream’s 10th race, was won by 5-2 favorite Gea.

Friday's Stronach 5 Sequence
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.
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 Maryland Jockey Club serves as host of the Stronach 5.
