Michael Owen is one of the most football figures in the world as the English retiree performed with various well-known and highly-rated clubs including: Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester United.
The Englishman received a vast amount of individual accolades and prizes with the Ballon d’Or being the most popular which Michael Owen won back in 2001 when he was performing with Liverpool.
Owen received more votes than: Raul, Rivaldo, ZinedineZidane, Oliver Kahn, David Beckham, Francesco Totti, Andriy Shevchenko, Thierry Henry and Luis Figo as all of those players were also nominated as the best player of Europe for that respective year.
Winning that award was an incredibly special feat for Michael Owen as the Englishman reached the peak of his career and the Ballon d’Or is an individual recognition that every football player wants to reach.
That’s one of the dreams of every single player in the world of football and Michael Owen is one of the handful players that has actually reached that feat but Owen also has another dream which he is going to accomplish within the near future.
This dream is being able to make his horse racing debut in a charity event which is scheduled to take place on November 24 of 2017.
Michael Owen is a horse enthusiast; he even owns race horses and has even bred a few of his own but unfortunately for the Englishman, Owen could never learn to ride or race in competitions during his playing days but since he retired over 3 years ago, the Ballon d’Or winner has enough time to focus on training and learn the ins and outs of horses and horse racing.
It appears like Owen has been training and he is eager for the upcoming charity event to arrive so that he can achieve one of his other lifelong dreams.
