peter schiergen


Irish bred son of the French Lawman and German Estefania, born on 24 March 2012.
He is trained in Germany by Peter Schiergen, owned by Gestüt Ebbesloh.

As of 8 December 2014, Ebeltoft has raced four times resultning in one first, one fourth, one fifth and one third place finish - and he has won a special place in my heart, too!

I do not know whether it was the owner’s intention or not, but Ebeltoft shares his name with one of the, in my opinion, most beautiful places in Denmark. My family and I have spent a week there almost every autumn for the last ten years.

The beautiful Nightflower was crowned Galopperin des Jahres 2015 - Germany’s Horse of the Year, - with 52% of the votes.
2015 Großer Preis von Bayern victor Ito received 28% of the votes, 2015 Deutsches Derby winner and Nightflower’s former stable companion, Nutan, 20%. March 2016.

Trained by Peter Schiergen (red tie), the now four-year-old daughter of Dylan Thomas and Night Of Magic began her 2015 campaign with a trip to France where she finished second in the Prix Nobiliary at Maisons-Laffitte and second in the Prix de Brunehaut at Chantilly. Back in Germany she won the Diana-Trial at Hoppegarten. Then came a trip to Chantilly again, where she finished eighth in the Prix de Diane before finishing second in the Preis der Diana at Grafenberg in Germany. In the beginning of September she was runner-up in the Großer Preis von Baden at Iffezheim and later that month she landed the Preis von Europa at Köln-Weidenpesch. She then took off for Japan where she ran 11th in the Japan Cup at Tokyo in late November.

Congratulations to all involved! I am excited to see what she accomplishes this year!
