Commenting on the catalogue for Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said;

“Graduates of Book 1 of the October Yearling Sale have enjoyed another stellar year with the likes of this year’s dual Group 1 winner Palace Pier and outstanding global stars Newspaperofrecord and Russian Camelot flying the flag throughout the world. The international achievements of Book 1 purchases at the highest level have yet again demonstrated the uniquely global appeal of Europe’s premier yearling sale and this year’s catalog is yet another in a long sequence of truly exceptional Book 1 catalogs. We have an extraordinary number of yearlings by the very best of an outstanding cast of European sires and, crucially for buyers at every level of Book 1, all 547 Book 1 yearlings can reward owners with the lucrative prize money offered through the £20,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus scheme. While the prize money for the hugely popular Book 1 Bonus Scheme has been slightly reduced in these uncertain times, it still remains uniquely rewarding and a significant number of the fillies in October Book 1 will also be eligible for the recently introduced Great British Bonus scheme.”
