Churchill Downs

  • It was “derby time” for Harry Connick, Jr. and his “beautiful derby girl” — his wife, Jill — when they were checked in at Churchill Downs in May 2017.
  • Kate Upton was “Placing bets” on the Kentucky Oaks race in May 2016 and also attended the Kentucky Derby the following day.
  • Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett and Hank Baskett were drinking and “Having fun here at the #KentuckyOaks” in May 2015, the day before the Derby — Kendra sipped on the signature Grey Goose Oaks Lily Cocktail.

Stargazer Tip: Celebrities tend to watch the races from the section of Churchill Downs known as Millionaires Row — you can eat breakfast there and watch the Kentucky Derby contenders practice by purchasing a $35 ticket to Dawn at the Downs, which takes place in the days before the big race.
