Famous Horses, Black Beauty

Warner Bros.

It's time to start horsin' around!

Some of the biggest household names are currently trotting over to Churchill Downs for the 141st Kentucky Derby. It's known that many stars will be wearing their most fabulous wide-brimmed hats, placing top-dollar bets on season-favorites such as this year's International Star and Carpe Diem or just heading down south to socialize.

To honor the immense work these race horses have put in for that 14-karot gold trophy, we've put together a gallery of the most memorable steeds to hit the big screen. You may recall Khan—the stubborn, but loyal sidekick of Mulan in the Disney animated film or if you're seeking even more colt nostalgia, the majestic horse Black Beauty.

Check out more of the all-time famous TV and movie horses in the gallery below!

Watch the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby Saturday at 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT on NBC, with early coverage beginning at 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT on NBC Sports Network.
