“Here’s one for sure, Sonny,” Uncle Walter said, holding up his paper and pointing to a name.
“This horse has only one eye. Now, at first you might think it’s crazy betting on a one-eyed horse, but let me show you something here. If that horse is racing and he’s only got one eye, there’s gotta be something really good about him, or they’d a sold him to the glue factory long ago. Look at who’s up on him. I know that jockey, and he’s the cleverest son of a bitch around. If anyone can make a half blind horse come in he’s your boy. That’s as sure a win as if you were past posting.”
