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 Royal Ascot Group 1 winner BLUE POINT and outstanding Classic and Group 1 winners JAPAN and PHOENIX OF SPAIN flying the flag throughout Europe. The achievements of Book 1 purchases at the highest level in America have further demonstrated the uniquely global appeal of Europe's premier yearling sale and this year's catalogue is yet another in a long sequence of truly exceptional Book 1 catalogues. 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 552 Book 1 yearlings can reward owners with the unprecedented prize money offered through the £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus scheme."
