Wayne Rooney invests in horse

Posted on | 0 Responses

Manchester United footballer Wayne Rooney has done what most equine insurance customers dream of and bought a yearling to be trained at team-mate Michael Owen's stable in the hope it will become a champion horse.

The England striker reportedly recently paid a visit to the Manor House Stables in Cheshire that Owen purchased in 2007 and was so impressed he decided to buy the as-yet unnamed horse.

A spokesman for Dascombe's yard confirmed that Rooney and his wife Coleen had bought a horse and stated if it was anything like star horse Brown Panther it would be "amazing".

"I can't confirm all the details yet as it's early stages. He's been down here and obviously liked what he saw and he's bought a yearling to go into training with us next year," the spokesman continued.

Rooney joins a number of footballers that are Owen's clients at the stables including Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Jonathan Woodgate.
