The 140th running of the Kentucky Derby will take place Saturday at Churchill Downs in Louisville.
The horse race has seen its share of celebrities — both equine and human — through the years.
So grab a mint julep or the drink of your choice and take a look back at the event through the years, including multiple U.S. presidents, a British queen and a Triple Crown winner.
