Giddyup, Kevin Hart!

The famous funny man may have a new job to try out soon – like being a Kentucky Derby jockey if his celeb pals have anything to do with it!

AOL hit the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, and chatted with dozens of celebs about the important things ... like what they would name their dream horse, which celeb would be their dream jockey, and how to properly announce the home stretch of the Kentucky Derby.

"Modern Family's" Sarah Hyland, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo, Shawn Stockman, Josh Groban, Star Jones, Ne-Yo, Joey Fatone, the "Bachelor's" Andi Dorfman and Whitney Bischoff, Dean Norris, and more stars showed up to the storied event and they weren't horsing around when we asked them to talk Derby with us.

Several celebs decided their dream horse name would pay homage to their own name, like the Fat One for Joey Fatone and All the Way Lachey for Nick and Vanessa, while others like the "Bachelor" gals both had wine on the mind and chose names like Whiskey and Wine and Mr. Merlot for their horses.

But the celebrity favorite to take several dream Kentucky Derby horses across the finish line as a jockey was none other than Kevin Hart. The "Get Hard" actor was a popular pick as a jockey for his slight frame and for his quick-wit. Other popular picks were Harrison Ford and Shaquille O'Neal, who many claimed could use his long legs to aid a horse across the finish line if he were riding it.

Check out AOL horsing around with the celebs at the Kentucky Derby red carpet and see many of your favorite stars give their best attempt at our #HomeStretchSweeps competition and try and commentate the final stretch of the Kentucky Derby.
