And starting from the 20th gate at Churchill Downs is Patch. The 3-year-old will load into the gates at the 2017 Kentucky Derby just like the other 19 horses to his left, but he won’t be able to see them. That’s because Patch only has one eye, and it’s on the right side.
But don’t let that lead you to believe he’s some incredible long shot because of his circumstances. Patch certainly isn’t letting having one eye slow him down, anyway, and has the racing pedigree to belong.
