    2014 Kentucky Derby Hats


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Photographer John McGraw marked his 20th year of attending the Kentucky Derby this weekend in Louisville, Kentucky. His biggest reason for attending? The hats! "I do take photos of the grandstands and stuff like that, but in general, the hats, something draws me to them," he said. "It reminds me of a time gone by. When you look at old photos of the early 1900s, all the women wore hats, and all the guys wore hats as well." See more of his Derby hat photography on
    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    Here are a few of the hats that I captured in the infield of Churchill Downs for the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby.

    It was a perfect day in the infield. in the mid 70's with a breeze.
