One-eyed horse on the Derby trail

Pollard’s Vision, named after Seabiscuit’s jockey Red Pollard, is entered in tomorrow’s Louisiana Derby. Nice story in the New York Times. Pollard’s Vision looks like a bit of a long shot, but he crushed a good field of horses at Gulfstream last month, so now he gets a chance to run with the big boys. The race is televised Sunday on ESPN2 at 6pm ET; past performances are here.
