Manchester United's manager Sir Alex Ferguson has finally ended up on the winning side despite a miserable week on the football pitch.

After last weekend's premier league loss to Chelsea and yesterday's elimination from the Champions league by Bayern Munich, Sir Alex was celebrating a win on the race track.

He's the part owner of a galloper named What a Friend, which won a Group One jumping race at Aintree hard on the heels of yesterday's Champions league loss.

Sir Alex was a part owner of the champion galloper Rock of Gibraltar which won a a world record seven consecutive Group One victories eight seasons ago.
