LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Broncos receiver Wes Welker won big at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday and was happy to share the wealth.
For the Win has the story of Marc Blandford, who was watching celebrities leave Churchill Downs after Saturday’s 140th Run for the Roses when Welker was coming down an escalator with a friend and police officer and holding a large stack of money.
“I said ‘Wes Welker, how ya doing?’” Blandford said.
After that, Blandford tells For the Win that Welker started handing out $100 bills to the group Blandford was with.
“He said he just won the Kentucky Derby and proceeded to walk down the line until the police officer stopped him,” Blandford said. “I think six of us ended up with $100 bills.”
“Everyone was pretty much freaking out,” Blandford added.
