Report: Churchill Downs wants nearly $15,000 back from Welker


Maybe Wes Welker shouldn’t have handed out so many $100 bills.

According to TMZ, the folks at Churchill Downs want nearly $15,000 back from the Broncos receiver. Churchill Downs contends that Welker was overpaid to the tune of $14,858.55.

The total payout for Welker’s winnings on Saturday, May 3 were $57,193.90. Due to computer malfunction compounded by human error, Welker got too much money.

Common sense suggests that, when the House makes an error, the House should eat it. Then again, the house didn’t become the House by giving away money.
