Police are re-opening the 35 year old case of the stolen race winning stud in a ‘final line of investigation’, after securing an additional £11 million from the Home Office.
The now famous horse was stolen in 1983, the body was never recovered, and the mystery never solved.
Racing Pundit, Phil Turf said:
“This is a colossal waste of public money and police time, had Shergar been a regular farm horse then no additional funding would have been signed off. Hundreds of normal horses go missing every year and no one bats an eye.”
A spokesman from the Home Office suggested that this would be the final attempt to find the horse unless new evidence surfaces.
