Wes Welker’s Undrafted to run on Belmont undercard Saturday

Undrafted, the four-year-old gelding owned by Broncos wide receiver and renowned horse handicapper Wes Welker, will run in Saturday’s $300,000 Jaipur International Stakes at Belmont Park.

But let’s not bury the lede.

The Jaipur winner, if you must know, will earn $180,000, but before you abandon ye weekend plans and aim thy automobiles in the general direction of New York with visions of Welker handing out cash like vouchers for free tacos when a basketball team hits 120 points, we bring you a report from the Boston Globe that says the star slot receiver will not be attending today’s races at Belmont.

At 5-to-1, Undrafted is the third choice on the morning line in the Jaipur, which starts at 1:16 p.m. Eastern and will be run at three-quarters of a mile on turf. Though he has yet to win in three starts in 2014, Undrafted has made $42,760 in purse money.

The Belmont Stakes, headlined by California Chrome seeking to become the 12th winner of the Triple Crown, is set for 6:52 p.m. ET and will air on NBC. NBCSN will air two hours of Belmont undercard coverage from 2:30-4:30, with NBC’s coverage beginning at 4:30.

    I bet his horse wins by a chin.

    I hope Undrafted goes out there and puts it’s best hoof forward.

    As long as the horse doesn’t have to catch a pass in the last 30 yards of the race he’ll probably win.

    The colt was renamed Unqualified after the race.

    To add injury to insult, Undrafted was dismembered.

    Somehow Undrafted will lead the horse racing circuit in dropped passes.

    The jockey will drop out of the saddle half way around.

    My prediction is that Welkers horse will drop a pass from Bradys horse when the race is on the line.

    will come up small in the big race, just like Welker comes up small in the big games .
