Manchester United star Wayne Rooney is expanding his stable.

The Daily Mail says Rooney has added a third racehorse to his stable after splashing out £63,600 on a two-year-old bay colt called Pippy.

Pippy was recently snapped up by the Manor House Team, the breeding and training operation co-run by Rooney's Manchester United team-mate Michael Owen.

The England striker also owns two other horses, Switcharooney and Tomway, and has registered a set of pink and white racing silks, which will be worn by the jockey when any of his horses run.
