LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The horses and roses weren’t the only famous attractions at the 138th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville.
Actors, musicians and even Miss America, Laura Kaeppeler, strutted down the red carpet leading into the historic racetrack on Saturday. The Run for the Roses usually draws those looking to be seen.
Country singer Miranda Lambert, former University of Kentucky basketball star Anthony Davis and Terry O'Quinn, noted for his role as “John Locke” on the television series “Lost,” also made the walk of the famous.
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick and defensive linemen Chris Canty, Amobi Okoye and Connor Barwin arrived later in the day.
