No one picked all five winners in Monmouth Park’s late Pick 5 on Friday, creating a carryover of $12,622.96 for Saturday’s early Pick 5, which is on races one through five.

The Pick 5, which is offered twice daily at Monmouth, is a 50-cent wager with a takeout rate of just 15 percent.

On Friday, the late Pick 5 races were won by Cavity ($8.60), Lasting Legacy ($17), Hello Abraxon ($46), Stormy Embrace ($6.40) and J B’s Big Red ($17).  

The consolation payout for four of five winners Sunday was $191.25.

In addition, a carryover of $3,135.91 awaits players in the Jersey Shore Six, which consists of the final six races on the day’s program.

Gates open at Monmouth on Saturday at 11:30 a.m., with first post set for 12:50 p.m. 

Matalona Thoroughbreds  LLC’s Stormy Embrace broke a bit slowly before hustling up just behind the leaders and squeezing through on the rail at the top of the stretch to score a length and three-quarters victory in Friday’s $40,000 allowance optional claiming feature at Monmouth Park.

Trained by Kathleen O’Connell, Stormy Embrace covered the six furlongs over the fast main track in 1:10.77 as the 2/1 favorite in the field of seven fillies and mares and paid $6.40, $3.60 and $2.40. Filibustin fought on to complete the $38.20 exacta and paid $5.20 and $3.20. It was a head back to Jezzie, who paid $2.40 in the show mutuel.

“She started a little slow, so we had to hustle up early in the race,” said winning rider Wilmer Garcia. “She had no problem staying tight on the rail. I got her in the right spot and she had plenty left in the stretch. I was very happy with her.”

The 3-year-old filly by Circular Quay out of the Stormy Atlantic mare Stormy Allure boosts her record to 3-3-0 in 10 lifetime starts, good for earnings of over $130,000.
