Thirty years ago last week, Shergar was kidnapped from Ballymany Stud. It was a sensation. He was the greatest racehorse of his era, having won the Epsom Derby by a record ten lengths.

He was worth vastly more at stud than as a winner and had produced three dozen foals by the time a van and horsebox pulled up in the Stud yard.
