Celebs Horse Around on Derby Day

By: Celebuzz / May 3, 2009

And they’re off! Their usual beaten path, that is.

Celebrities abandoned the typical Hollywood hot spots this weekend, instead swarming on Louisville, Kentucky, to attend the 135th Kentucky Derby and see Mine That Bird overcome 50-1 odds to pull off a stunning upset victory.

Among the famous in attendance, most of them rocking some serious Derby day hats, were Kim Kardashian and her mother Kris Jenner, Gabrielle Union, Brooke Shields, Nick Lachey, Paris Hilton and her latest beau Doug Reinhardt, and country singer LeAnn Rimes.

Hopefully Rimes had a mint julep or three to take her mind off of the embarrassing headlines she’s been generating lately.
