Wes Welker Handed Out $100 Bills To Fans At Kentucky Derby (Photos)

Wes Welker had a good time at the Kentucky Derby, and he made sure everyone around him did, too.

The Denver Broncos wide receiver attended the famed horse race Saturday and apparently cashed in big, leaving the premises with several huge wads of cash. According to For the Win, Welker spread the love with his winnings by handing out $100 bills to several Derby-goers walking by him. By the looks of this picture, he did it in style.

One lucky recipient was Marc Blandford, who says he and many others benefited from Welker’s good mood.

“He said he just won the Kentucky Derby and proceeded to walk down the line until the police officer stopped him,” Blandford told For the Win. “I think six of us ended up with $100 bills.” [tweet https://twitter.com/MarcBlandford/statuses/463295289143853056 align=’center’]

Welker likely cashed in on winning horse California Chrome, who entered the Kentucky Derby as the clear favorite with 2-1 odds.
