Last place for Rooney's horse
Chester - 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 Wednesday.
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 here in northwest England.
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.
