Kate Gosselin's Kentucky Derby Weekend

Posted Saturday May 7, 2011 10:12 AM GMT

Immersing herself in the happenings taking place around the Churchill Downs venue, Kate Gosselin made her way to Louisville, Kentucky for the 2011 Kentucky Derby.

The TLC reality star kicked off her Friday (May 6) with a visit to the Style Icon 2011 Luxury Gifting Suite at the Galt House Hotel & Suites Grand Ballroom - where she proceeded to try on an array of fabulous hats before deciding on a lucky winner to top her noggin on race day.

Once finished up, Miss Gosselin swapped into a sparkly frock as she joined in on the popular 2011 Barnstable-Brown gala at the Barnstable-Brown House.

Also drawing out stars such as Marisa Miller, Maria Menounos and Miranda Lambert, the gala comes on every eve of the famous horse race.

This year's Derby is set to take place on Saturday (May 7) with post time being set for 6:24PM ET. With favorite Uncle Mo being a late scratch, current lines put Dialed In as the new top-odds horse at 9-2.
