After the race trainer Ed Dunlop commented; “We targeted October Book 1 specifically because of the £25,000 October Book 1 Bonus so we are thrilled to have won the first one.” Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony commented; "We are delighted that the first £25,000 October Book 1 Bonus has been won. Global Applause looks an exciting prospect and as a horse who only cost 78,000 guineas at Book 1 of the October Yearling Sale, precisely what the bonus scheme was set up to promote."
