Over the weekend, the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs went down. The annual event is known as much for hats and high fashion as it is for fast horses. We caught a few candids of some of some celebs like Star Jones, Angela Bassett, Tiki Barber (with his wife Traci Lynn), retired NBA baller Scottie Pippen, Anthony Anderson, former NBA coach Avery Johnson (and his wife) celebrity publicist Kita Williams in attendance.
