LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Latest on Saturday’s 144th running of the Kentucky Derby (all times local):
Celebrities are making their annual walk down the red carpet at the Kentucky Derby.
“Friday Night Lights” star Taylor Kitsch is attending his first Derby, but he’s no stranger to picking a good horse. He says he won’t settle on a choice until he sees the horses just before the race.
“I love to see them first, see what they’re dealing with, see the energy of the horses right before they get in there, and then I’ll know,” said Kitsch, who has starred in HBO’s “True Detective” and the films “Battleship” and “Lone Survivor.”
Former Dallas Cowboys star Jason Witten turned ESPN football analyst on Monday Night Football made his way to Churchill Downs just days after announcing his retirement from football. Witten says he’s “still on the high right now of going through so many emotions.”
