Chester - Wayne Rooney's successes on the football pitch are yet to transfer to the race course.
Manchester United striker endured a miserable debut as a racehorse
owner when his colt finished last in its first race on Wednesday.
Pippy was always toward the rear after a slow start and he never got
into the race, which was run on rain-softened ground here in northwest
The horse, ridden on 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.
