1 of 1

Nayef Road became the 100th winner to trigger the £25,000 Tattersalls Book 1 Bonus for his owners when winning at Haydock on Friday, taking payments from the scheme to £2.5 million.

The Mark Johnston-trained colt won the Smarkets EBF Novice Stakes in decisive fashion in the colours of Mohamed Obaida to earn a total of £39,616, including the bonus payment.

A son of Galileo out of Rose Bonheur, Nayef Road was purchased by Rabbah Bloodstock for 100,000 guineas from Oaks Farm Stables at Book 1 of last year’s Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, with all lots offered at the October Book 1 Yearling Sale eligible for a £25,000 bonus.

Watch Nayef Road's lucrative win

"We are delighted to have the 100th winner of a £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus," said Tattersalls marketing director Jimmy George.

"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 bonus winners have been bought for 100,000gns or less including this year’s 62,000gns Group 3 Albany Stakes winner Main Eition and German 1,000 Guineas winner Nyaleti who he purchased for 40,000gns."

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.

This year's Book 1 sale will take place in Newmarket from October 9-11, with approximately 500 yearlings set to be offered.
