LOUISVILLE -- Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers enjoyed a Saturday full of fancy hats, mint juleps and horse racing at the Kentucky Derby.

Rodgers, Randall Cobb, Jimmy Graham, David Bahktiari, AJ Hawk and others were in attendance.
Rodgers was interviewed prior to the derby by NBC Sports and said he was betting on Audible to win it all--since it's his favorite thing to do at the line of scrimmage. Well, that and drawing opponents offside and chucking Hail Mary's

But the name let him down, Audible came in third, but he's probably not worried considered a brand new $30 million a year or more contract is in his near future.
Despite the horse disappointment, everyone agree Rodgers looked pretty sharp in his derby day get-up. He rocked a bright blue suit with an open collared with shirt, aviator sunglasses and white sneakers with yellow laces and blue stripes down the side.
