Rainy Day At The Races: Darren Fletcher, Wayne Rooney & Wes Brown

What would a day at the races be without a few (former and current) Manchester United players?

Probably a less profitable one, as lordy these lads like to gamble.

Only three ‘ballers braved yesterday’s rain in their Chester Races suited finery: Darren Fletcher (with wife, Hayley Grice), Wayne Rooney (also joined by his wife, Coleen) and ex-United teammate/current Sunderland player Wes Brown (who went without Leanne Wassell).

Despite Wayne having the hook-me-up-bookie glint in his eye, he and Col’s horse Pippy came in dead last. Presumably they then retreated home to read “Chicken Soup for the Lighter Pockets’ Souls” in each of their His & Hers walk-in shoe closets.

Less than 24 hours after a study found that girls were being put off physical education at a young age because of 1) a lack of female sporting role models, and 2) the growing view that “getting sweaty” was not feminine, a chief executive of the Independent Association of Prep Schools claimed that British parents are sending their daughters to private schools to protect them from the materialistic WAG culture.

Based on figures published by the association that showed a surge in prep school enrollment amongst female pupils, ”many young girls’ ambitions can include marrying a footballer.” Obviously this is scaring the Prada pants off posh parents, and to ensure their daughters grow up with “real aspiration”, they’re enrolling them in wildly expensive private schools (some to the tune of £25,000-a-year) instead.
