Introduced in 2015 the £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus offers a payment of £25,000, on top of race prize-money, for winners of all Class 2, 3 and 4 maiden and novice two-year-old races in Britain and all Open two-year-old maiden races in Ireland.
Jimmy George, Marketing Director of Tattersalls, commented;
“We are delighted to have the 100th winner of a £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus. Since its introduction the response to the scheme has been fantastic. It provides owners with the unprecedented opportunity to earn prize money of £30,000 or more from around 300 British and Irish two-year-old novice and maiden races and it is particularly appropriate that Mark Johnston has trained the 100th winner of a £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus.
“Mark has always recognised that October Book 1 combines quality with value and six of his seven £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus winners have been bought for 100,000 guineas or less including this year’s 62,000 guineas Group 3 Albany Stakes winner MAIN EDITION and German 1,000 Guineas winner NYALETI who he purchased for 40,000 guineas.”
Book 1 of the 2018 Tattersalls October Book 1 Yearling Sale, Europe’s premier yearling sale, takes place 9th – 11th October. The catalogue looks set to number around 500 yearlings, all eligible for a £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus, and will be available later this month.
