the trophy has never been seen in public since, although every now again a few people think they have seen Shergar in a field near their homes, or the Earl in a bar in darkest Africa4BR

Not seen again

Shergar was never seen again after being being nicked from his stables in Ireland, whilst Lord Lucan did a famous bunk after undertaking a particularly gruesome murder of the family nanny.

The World Championship Trophy also made a mysterious departure after being returned to the owners.
