Kelce’s superstar girlfriend, Taylor Swift, was not in attendance, as her private plane reportedly flew to Paris. Her Eras Tour is set to kick off again on May 9 in the City of Love.

There had been speculation recently about whether the famous couple would be watching the 150th annual horse race or enjoying the Miami Grand Prix in Florida this weekend.

Jimmy Kimmel recently compared Swift, also 34, to the Kentucky Derby as he marveled over her latest album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” and its record-breaking success.

“I feel like Taylor Swift, at this point, if she wanted to, could win the Kentucky Derby,” the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” host joked in his April 30 monologue.

While the pop star and Kelce have not attended the event in previous years, Swifties were “manifesting” a joint appearance on X.

“taylor and travis showing up to the kentucky derby would be a fever dream,” one social media user tweeted.

Another wrote that Swift just might as she is “in her sports era,” while another gushed that they would “love to see her in a fascinator.”

They were “affectionate all night,” per a source.

During his offseason and her break from touring, the duo made headlines for PDA-packed outings in the Bahamas, California and more.

Most recently, Swift and Kelce spent a weekend acting “affectionate” at Patrick Mahomes’ charity event in Las Vegas, according to an eyewitness.

Not only did the pair look loved-up at the gala on April 28, but the “Cruel Summer” singer’s fans are convinced she also cheered on her boyfriend at the golf tournament earlier that same day.
