Horse Named After Kobe Bryant Wins Willard Proctor Memorial Race (VIDEO)

By Jose Martinez, Complex Sports

Just because Kobe Bryant has been sidelined over the last few months with an Achilles injury doesn't mean that he still isn't winning.

Well, sort of.

Shortly after Bryant tore his Achilles, horse owner Lee Searing named his two-year-old colt "Kobe's Back." In true Black Mamba fashion, Kobe's Back came away on top with a first place finish in Hollywood’s Willard Proctor Memorial horse race, winning $100,000.

Kobe stays winning.
