Former top footballer Michael Owen made his debut as a “jockey” on Friday (24 November), finishing second on the Tom Dascombe-trained Calder Prince in the Prince’s Countryside Trust seven-furlong charity Flat race at Ascot.

H&H were fortunate to visit Michael at home and take an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of his Manor House Stables in Cheshire — where 90 horses-in-training enjoy state-of-the-art facilities including an on-site veterinary centre, spa, swimming pool and immaculate gallops.
