Wayne Rooney and his wife Coleen will be hoping for a change of luck at Chepstow on Wednesday 23 May when their two year old colt, Tomway, returns to the track for his second outing.
The Rooneys, who were persuaded into racehorse ownership by Manchester United team-mate Michael Owen, had their first-ever runners at Chester two weeks ago. However, both horses finished down the field, having never looked like winning.
Things could be different at Chepstow, with Tomway stepping up in trip to race over six furlongs in a lower grade contest, with experience under his belt.
However, he'll be facing nine opponents in the 32RedPoker.com Maiden Stakes, so he won't have it all his own way.
Tomway, a chestnut colt by Sakhee's Secret, cost the Rooneys £15,900 and is based at Tom Dascombe's Manor House Stables, a Cheshire training yard owned by Michael Owen.
