INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — A horse co-owned by Los Angeles Lakers stars Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol is set to run in Sunday's first race at Betfair Hollywood Park.

Siempre Mo is trained by Doug O'Neill, who guided I'll Have Another to recent victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness.

Siempre Mo will take on five other older horses at six furlongs in the $12,500 claiming race. He will be ridden by Joy Scott. The 4-year-old gelding won his most recent start by 2¼ lengths on March 31 at Santa Anita.

Bryant and Gasol are part-owners along with Santa Anita CEO Mark Verge, who says Gasol has been a regular visitor at O'Neill's barn since the Lakers lost in the second round of the playoffs.
