We report the results of $v_1$ and $dv_1/dy$ near mid-rapidity for $\Lambda$, $\bar{\Lambda}$, $K^{\pm}$, $K_s^0$ and $\phi$ in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 7.7, 11.5, 14.5, 19.6, 27 and 39~GeV using the STAR detector at RHIC. The $dv_1/dy$ of $\Lambda$ is found to be consistent with that of the proton and shows a change in sign near $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 11.5$~GeV. The $v_{1}$ slope for $\bar{\Lambda}$, $\bar{p}$ and $\phi$ shows a similar trend for $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ $>$
