Get your big and wild hats ready, Kentucky Derby 2010 is almost here! It's this Saturday, May 1!

I checked out the contenders and based on names alone, I'm feeling Paddy O'Prado.

Homeboykris sounds like he's got some spunk, too.

I'm not even a huge fan of horse racing, though I've been to Aqueduct in NYC once and had a surprisingly great time.

And even though it wasn't the Kentucky Derby, I wore a huge hat and got all dressed up. It was my husband's birthday, so why not go all out?

But for you Derby and/or huge hat lovers, here are some whimsical and wide selections.
