The Monticello Miracle was an incident in which a racehorse at Monticello Raceway hit World War II veteran Don Karkos in the exact spot where he had received shrapnel and lost sight in one of his eyes during a World War II naval battle. This blow caused him to regain his sight, most likely by dislodging the shrapnel.[1][2]
