Foaled in 1972, Peterhof was a chestnut by Royal Palace out of the Primera mare Raymonda. He came to our yard after being purchased out of a York seller for a mere 800gns. Peterhof was a superb hurdler and he won the 1976 Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. Ridden by Jonjo O'Neill, Peterhof beat the great Monksfield in the race, and survived a stewards' enquiry to take the prizemoney.
Peterhof left the yard in October 1977 to be trained by Fulke Walwyn.
