LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - One of the celebrities who will be in Louisville for this year's Kentucky Derby has four legs and has actually been around the track a time or two.

Derby winner Mine That Bird is returning to Louisville in connection with the Kentucky opening of the movie "50 to 1," about the gelding's victory at Churchill Downs in 2009. The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1kzn6K1 ) reports the film will open in more than 20 Kentucky theaters on April 18, and producer Jim Wilson and cast members are making a bus tour to promote it.

Mine That Bird will be on display April 17 at the Derby Museum, travels to Keeneland on April 18 and returns to the Derby Museum the following day to stay through May 10, on loan from his owners.
