Kidnapped Horse Found!

A year after beingh kidnapped, one of Italy's top trotting horses has been found running loose on a beach!

Daguet Rapide, who was champion in 2003/04 and won €1.4m during his career, was kidnapped last June, but mysteriously turned up last week on a beach in the Naples area.

The horse is now a top stallion and is currently 10th on the Italian top sires list. During his absence his frozen semen was being sold for €15,000.

After the horse was stolen, it is thought that joint owners Marco Folli and Jean Pierre Dubois refused to pay a ransom. The horse was found on same beach that another kidnapped trotter - Iglesias - was found a month ago.
