Sad Ken is a three-legged blind horse. In "Parade," Tight-Mouthed Larry lets it slip to the patrons of the Lamb & Flag that Sad Ken is tipped to win the 3.30 at Chepstow despite odds of 100-1. Sad Ken's foray into horse-racing is short-lived, as he bolts from the gates at the start of the race in the wrong direction, eventually getting shot along with the jockey.
