Wes Welker won big at the Kentucky Derby and started handing out $100 bills
Wes Welker must be from Brooklyn, because the Pro Bowl wide receiver was spreading love the Brooklyn way at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.
Apparently the Denver Broncos wide receiver won big betting on the Derby and decided to share the wealth. According to a gentleman named Marc Blandford, Welker made his exit from the race carrying stacks of hundreds. Welker was flanked by a friend and a police officer and began handing out $100 bills to some people.
“He said he just won the Kentucky Derby and proceeded to walk down the line until the police officer stopped him,” Blandford told USA Today. “I think six of us ended up with $100 bills.”
