Whodunnit? Sport’s greatest unsolved kidnapping 30 years on

(CNN) — It was a foggy winter’s night on the remote Ballymany Stud Farm in Ireland when its head groom Jim Fitzgerald heard a knock at the door.

What lurked outside was to spark one of the most extraordinary unsolved kidnappings of the 20th Century.

Thirty years ago this week — on February 8, 1983 — Fitzgerald was confronted by three masked gunmen. They had come for Shergar — then the most valuable race horse in the world and the pride of a nation.

…”We were staggered. A horse kidnapped? Nothing like this had ever happened before.”

Sky News:

Tests on Findus beef lasagne have revealed that some of the ready meals were made entirely from horsemeat.

Findus analysed 18 of its beef lasagne products and found 11 meals contained between 60% and 100% horsemeat, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) said.

    Shergar – It’s what’s for dinner.

    I thought one put Shergar into baked goods, not pasta dishes.

    Oh, well, Sugar seems to go into everything nowadays – just read the labels.

    Yeah, your favorite pasta sauce (sometimes high-fructose corn syrup instead but still) and even ketchup/catsup. Almost anything, really.

    Just look for “no sugar added” labels, then look next door and wonder why they heck they are adding sugar to THAT.

    Shergar would be an improvement – at least you’d get some protein.

    Shergar in the morning
    Shergar in the evening
    Shergar at suppertime
    Be my little Shergar and bake me all the time
