Del Mar: A 65-1 shot to consider


Yes, Trick Skate is 65-1 for the forthcoming Generous Portion Stakes. Yes, she was eighth and seventh in her last two starts in stakes. But the 2-year-old filly had trouble in both starts and could finish closer with a better trip.

Plus, the reward would surpass the risk at that price.

The Generous Portion has drawn a full field 13 statebred fillies. Trick Skate has drawn the outside post in an open race. With 21 minutes to post, Miles Rules and Perfect Curls are both 7-2, and both care coming off wins.
