Wes Welker

PASSIN' OUT $100 BILLS

After Huge Kentucky Derby Victory

5/5/2014 10:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0505_wes_welker_kentucky_derby_money_photos_launch_v2Wes Welker channeled his inner Lloyd Christmas at Churchill Downs this weekend -- passing out $100 bills to strangers after winning THOUSANDS of dollars on the Kentucky Derby.

Unclear what bet hit for the Denver Broncos receiver (trifecta? boxed trifecta? super trifecta?),  but  Welker left the cashier with STACKS of hundred dollar bills.  

And people at the race track tell us ... he was in such a great mood, he handed out several $100 bills to complete strangers to celebrate his big victory.  We're told he handed out at least $600. 

Eventually, race track security advised Welker to move toward the exit before things got chaotic ... but dude, STRONG MOVE, WELKER.

It's good he won something, because he seems to have difficulty when it comes to Super Bowls.

Wes Welker owns a horse named Undrafted that finished 2nd in Friday's race. He probably parlayed that into big money.
