Drew Brees hasn't been playing football this spring, but he's kept his eyes on another sport.

The Sport of Kings, to be exact. Brees and his partners claimed the thoroughbred Siempre Mio after a race at Hollywood Park on Sunday creating an extremely rare case of a horse going from one MVP owner to another. One of Siempre Mio's previous owners was Lakers star Kobe Bryant, the 2008 NBA MVP.

Bryant, his teammate Pau Gasol and others entered the horse in a claiming race. Claiming races put all the horses up for sale at roughly the same price and any licensed owner may claim them for the prearranged price before the start of the race. Once the race begins, the horse is the property of the new owners although any money won in the race goes to the previous owners.
