Among all the horses and the thousands of people at Churchill Downs were some celebrities who took a walk down the red carpet.

14 News was there on the red carpet and many stars told us what keeps them coming back, year after year.

"The excitement, the hospitality," former N*SYNC member, Joey Fatone said.

Fatone said that was why returned to the Derby. But for others, like actress Jane Seymour, Kentucky Derby 139 is something new.

"It's fantastic. I'm a little sad about the rain, but I'm going to be inside so I think I'm going to be okay," Seymour said.

"I'm just happy to be here and seeing all the beautiful people," NBA legend, Scottie Pippin said. 

Let's not forget the fashion. Country music star Miranda Lambert strolled down the carpet with a touch of pink, while Seymour kept it classy in all red.

"I've come to the conclusion it's all about the hat," Seymour said.

Some celebs said being travel-ready was a must for their hat selection.

"I wanted to go even larger, but I'm still loving this hat," said Angela Zatopek with NBC's Ready for Love.

But hat or no hat, everyone said they like being around old friends, and new ones, at Churchill.

"The parties have been amazing. We're not big partiers, though. We like the daytime stuff, so like going to the Oaks, having mint juleps," American Pie actor, Jason Biggs said.

"We feel like we're stepping back in time," Jenny Mollen said. 

Many 14 News spoke with said they're already getting excited for next year.
