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.”
