Even if you're not a fan of horse racing, the running of the Kentucky Derby isn't just about the sport. From the hottest celebs that attended the event to sweet sips like mint juleps, the fun couldn't be stopped by this year's drizzle. The first race of the Triple Crown was met with mud splatters and a hot race, ending with Orb splashing through the finish line, making jockey Joel Rosario the first Dominican to win. Orb was the five-to-one favorite and burst out of the gates to run the track in 2:02.89. Click through for a few highlights from the running of the 139th Kentucky Derby.
