Man Utd ace Rooney sees his debut runner finish dead last

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney's latest nag has run dead last on debut.

Rooney received a sobering introduction to racehorse ownership when his first runner Pippy finished last.

The Manchester United striker has Tomway running in the 3.40 race today.

Pippy, which Rooney revealed was named after a childhood nickname for wife Coleen, trailed home almost nine lengths behind Jo Hughes-trained All Fur Coat in the Lily Agnes Stakes looking ill at ease in the soft ground.
