Wayne Rooney’s horse finishes last in first race
Wayne Rooney’s successes on the football pitch are yet to
transfer to the race course.
The Manchester United striker endured a miserable debut as a
racehorse owner when his colt finished last in its first race on
Two-year-old Pippy was always toward the rear after a slow start
and he never got into the race, which was run on rain-softened
ground at Chester in northwest England.
The horse, ridden Wednesday by Richard Kinscote, is jointly
owned by Rooney and wife Coleen, who both watched the Manor House
Stables Lily Agnes Stakes.
Their other horses are called Switcharooney and Tomway.
