Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker already makes quite a bit of money playing football, but now he's also making a solid amount of money thanks to the horse he owns.

Welker's horse, Undrafted, won the fourth race of the Belmont Stakes undercard on Saturday. He entered the race as one of the favorites and didn't disappoint, posting a time of 1:07.24 and beating out Marchman, the horse that was the go-to favorite. 

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, Welker won $165,000 thanks to Undrafted.
