Undrafted, the four-year-old gelding owned by Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, is one of the 14 horses set to run in the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at Santa Anita Park in California. In his last race, Undrafted came in third at the Kentucky Downs Turf Dash Stakes, beaten by half a length. So far in 2014, Undrafted has earned $274,046 in purse money, with one win, one place and two shows in six starts, five of which were on turf.
Hall of Fame jockey John Velazquez will ride Undrafted at The Breeders’ Cup which will be broadcast live on NBC, November 1 at 8pm. He’ll break from the No. 11 post. Let’s just hope Wes Welker has learned his lesson from the Kentucky Derby…he was suspended by the NFL for four games for using amphetamines at the Derby. But he did win some bets that day. He was photographed giving away $100 bills to strangers.
