According to TMZ, Welker pulled in an extra $15,000 in winnings because of a machine malfunction.
Welker joined the Dan Patrick Show on Friday and, when asked about the malfunction and whether he would hand money back to Churchill Downs, had a very succinct response.
Welker told us that he’s not giving Churchill Downs the cash back. “Get in line.”

Welker also added Churchill Downs wouldn’t have contacted him if he’d been underpaid so it’s not fair to demand money in return for a mistake.
While the wideout might have a point, here’s betting Churchill Downs doesn’t see it that way.
