NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Triple Crown races have been very good to Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker.

His horse Undrafted won the $300,000 Jaipur Invitational at Belmont Park on Saturday.

Welker also had a great day at the Kentucky Derby last month. He won thousands of dollars on the Triple Crown race that day and was seen with a large stack of cash afterward. He was handing out $100 bills to random people at the Derby.

Welker wasn’t in attendance Saturday, USA Today reported.

“He ran fantastic,” trainer Wesley Ward said of Undrafted, according to USA Today. “He ran beautiful. I was really happy.”

The race was one of the undercards for the Belmont Stakes, which will see California Chrome trying to complete the first Triple Crown in 36 years.
