"Chili Flag for the win!": Travis Kelce biggest bet was on the horse Forever

Travis Kelce said his biggest bet was on the horse Forever Young, which finished third by a nose behind winner Mystik Dan and Sierra Leone in a photo finish.

 

The 150th running of the race was one of its closest in history, with three horses seemingly crossing the finish line at the same time.

“I was a nose away from winning that f——- thing,” Travis Kelce said, before later adding, “I almost won $100,000 off a f—— Japanese horse in the Kentucky Derby. Do you think America would’ve shamed me?”

“I’m shaming you right now,” Jason Kelce said. “You bet on a Japanese horse?”

Travis Kelce also described bumping into Motown legend Smokey Robinson, rapper Jack Harlow, a handful of fellow NFL players, and “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon. He said Fallon was cradling a Labrador puppy in his hands.

“That’s how you do it. That’s how you make a statement and get everyone to just f——- love you, because the dog was cute as hell,” Travis Kelce said. “Who would’ve knew that a dog would’ve stole the show at the Derby?

“I can’t tell you how much I loved just seeing Jimmy. I was literally placing a bet and he just sneaks up right next to me like nothing’s going on. It was a surprise, I wasn’t expecting it. He was on the f—— move, though, man. That guy’s a hard worker, man. It’s so impressive, everything that he does.”

Fallon previously shared a video of them shaking hands.

“Chili Flag for the win!” Fallon captioned the post, likely referencing the racehorse who won the Distaff Turf Mile Stakes race at Churchill Downs May 4.

Travis Kelce chimed in in the comments section with, “For the winnnnnnnnnn!!!”
