Michael Owen, From Striker To Jockey

November 21, 2017

Home / UK Horse Racing /


Former striker Michael Owen who played for Liverpool, Read Madrid, Man Utd, Stoke City and the England national team has switched careers from football to horse racing, and is set to run his first race as Ascot next week.

Owen who is already a successful owner-breeder from his yard in Cheshire explained
“I’ve never put one leg either side of a horse before and that happened five months ago. I was asked to ride in a charity race and thought ‘well, it’s one way of trying to get fit, it’s one-way of get down to a good weight because as we know when we retire it is not easy.”
