Patch looks a lot like the other Kentucky Derby contenders — he’s a sleek, muscled, 3-year-old thoroughbred. At least, he looks like the other racehorses from the right side. On the left, where others have an eye, Patch has an empty, ping-pong ball-size socket.
"A One-Eyed Horse Named Patch Has a Chance of Winning the Kentucky Derby" is from the May 04, 2017 Animalia section of The Washington Post. It was written by Eliza McGraw and narrated by Sam Scholl.
