FOOTBALL has reached into the world of horse racing after news that Manchester United player, Wayne Rooney, will take ownership of a yearling in 2012.
In partnership with his wife, Coleen, the England striker will have a two-year old yearling in training with Tom Dascombe next year. 
Rooney has always enjoyed an occasional day out at Chester races but he showed a greater interest in the sport after Michael Owen invited him to Manor House Stables.
Owen owns the yard in partnership with Betfair co-founder Andrew Black, and this is where Rooney's yearling will be trained.
Let's see if this high-profile football player can have as much success on the track as he does on the pitch.
