Shergar is the story of a race horse – kidnapped and killed. I’m sure I’d heard about it but forgotten the story. I picked up a $5 movie in the bin at Walmart.

The movie was good, but romantacized. Unwanted boy, fabulous horse, tinker with beautiful granddaughter. The real story – tragic but terrible interesting. The two stories (real and fiction) merge in beautiful Ireland with the IRA kidnapping Shergar for ransom that won’t be paid. Both end tragically with the death of this beautiful animal.

The movie didn’t get very good ratings, but I viewed it with no history and no expectations, so I liked it.

This video shows an entire race You can see his white face and four white socks clearly. Also a couple of famous race attendees are seen near the beginning.
