LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Want to go to the Kentucky Derby but can't? A new app called DerbyMe can get you there.

Using DerbyMe, the user takes a picture of his or her face and can put it in a frame featuring various Derby themes. The user can be a jockey or a hat-bedecked spectator, for example.

The photos can then be uploaded to Twitter.

Users can also follow the Twitter feeds of the horses and are encouraged to upload pictures of themselves directly onto various social media sites such as Instagram.

The 139th Run for the Roses is Saturday at Churchill Downs in Louisville.

The app is free and available for iPhones.
