Monday is President's Day, so what better time to look back at the U.S. President's who have attended the Kentucky Derby.  Nixon, who attended in 1969, is the only president to have enjoyed coming to the Derby while he was holding the office. Nine other U.S. Presidents have attended, but not while serving as President. Scroll through the slideshow to see the other Commanders in Chief to have walked the hallowed ground of Churchill Downs on the first Saturday in May.
