Meet Patch, the one eyed horse.

He’s already run away withe America’s heart, and today he’ll ‘Run for the Roses’ in the Kentucky Derby. After losing an eye to disease, he never lost his love to race.

No need to feel sorry for Patch, winning is in his bloodline. He is the son of 2012 Belmont Stakes winner, Union Rags, and the grandson of 1992 Belmont Stakes and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner, A.P. Indy.

He’ll run from the 20th gate, which means he will see no other horses out of the gate.

Wouldn’t this be a fantastic story to see him win?
