It turns out Wes Welker's luck at the Kentucky Derby extended beyond the racetrack and into the cashier's window.
Welker was seen at Churchill Downs with a large stack of cash and handing out $100 bills to random people earlier this month.
A spokesman for Churchill Downs said Friday that a patron believed to be a member of Welker's group was accidentally overpaid $14,898. TMZ reported that the Denver Broncos receiver sent a friend to collect his winnings for him.
Although the track sent a letter to that individual seeking repayment, the track doesn't expect to be repaid.
Welker told "The Dan Patrick Show" on Friday that he and his friends never calculated how much they were due and that they made most of their winnings at the Kentucky Derby from boxing Commanding Curve.
