But when he hears that Shergar is soon to be executed, he realises that he and the horse must escape together. Making their bid for freedom, and with the terrorists following close on their tail, Kevin and Shergar are soon taken in by a kindly poet and his granddaughter. However, the terrorists aren't likely to lose track of them for long.

Format: DVD
Kevin Doherty (Tom Walsh), the orphaned son of a jockey, dreams of racing horses like his father, but instead finds himself in the middle of a terrorist plot to kidnap Shergar, Ireland's greatest racehorse. Terrorist Gavin O'Rourke (Mickey Rourke) and his second-in-command Dermot Concannon steal Shergar away to a remote farm owned by Eamonn Garrity (David Warner). Unknown to the kidnappers, teenage runaway Kevin lies in the hayloft of the Garrity farm and is aware of Shergar's identity. Though initially elated at being charged with the horse's keep, Kevin is horrified when he hears of Shergar's impending execution and resolved to ride the horse to freedom. Staying only steps ahead of the kidnappers and the authorities, Kevin alters the appearance of the instantly recognisable horse. Nice film.

Back in February 1983, Irish racehorse Shergar was stolen. To this day, the horse has not been found. This film attempts to relay as amny of the known facts surrounding the case into a watchable film. It's enjoyable and the film seems to be authentic in it's portrayal of the way things were in 1983.
Worth a watch, but not a re-watch.

The film has ruined my love of the horse shergar. Before viewing this 'so called' film i had love/hate relationship with the mystery that surrounded my beloved shergar. However this film has well and truly destroyed one of the best memories of my childhood. I hope you are pleased Micky Rourke and friends!!!!!!!!!!!!
