Travis Kelce admits he nearly won a $100,000 wager at the Kentucky Derby… before losing in an excruciating three-horse photo finish

On the newest episode of his podcast, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, broadcast on Wednesday, May 8, the 34-year-old Kansas City Chiefs player revealed that he “almost won” $100,000 at the annual Louisville horse racing event over the weekend.

“I was a nose away from winning that f—ing thing, dude,” Travis informed his brother and co-host Jason Kelce, explaining that he bet on Number 11 to win and “a little bit” on Number 2 in the race at Churchill Downs.

“I was a beginner. “I didn’t go too far with that,” Travis explained. “I just wanted to f—-ing put the money I brought in there and toss it down on like one horse and feel f—-ing thrilled if that animal even came close. “Coming around that corner, you see that thing… come up.”

“… I almost f—ing won $100,000 off a Japanese horse in the Kentucky Derby,” Travis said. “Do you think America would have shamed me for that?” he asked, laughing. “I’m shaming you right now, dude,” said Jason, 36. “You bet on a Japanese horse?” “What is the name of the horse?” “Forever Young,” Travis sung as he demonstrated his vocal abilities.Travis Kelce came agonizingly close to landing a $100,000 bet at the Kentucky Derby

Travis was pictured at the famed race on Saturday, May 4, among a bevy of other celebrities, including Jimmy Fallon, who shared a video on Instagram of his encounter with Travis at the event.

The NFL star, who attended the race without fiancée Taylor Swift, looked smart in a white pinstripe suit, navy fedora hat, and matching tie, complete with his signature diamond hoop earrings.

Travis’ magnificent Derby attire, which he revealed was designed by Patrick Christopher, was featured in an Instagram video posted by the official Kentucky Derby account, in which he was seen clapping and hopping up and down joyfully as he watched the action on the race track.
