Total Prize money £29,269
The Mark Johnston-trained POETâ€™S PRINCE became the 56th winner of a Â£25,000 October Book 1 Bonus when taking out the Western House Novice Auction Stakes at Ayr and collecting a total of Â£29,269 when prize money of Â£4,269 is added. POETâ€™S PRINCE was purchased at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale for just 28,000 guineas by Mark Johnston Racing from the draft of Houghton Bloodstock. He is the second Â£25,000 Book 1 Bonus winner for trainer Johnston this year following on from NYALETI, who was subsequently second in the Group 2 Duchess of Cambridge Stakes. Johnston has now won four Â£25,000 Book 1 Bonus races since the schemeâ€™s inception last year. POETâ€™S PRINCE is a son of POETâ€™S VOICE out of the multiple Listed winning sprinter PALACE AFFAIR who remarkably has had two Â£25,000 Book 1 Bonus winners, with POETâ€™S VOICEâ€™S own-sister POETâ€™S PRINCESS winning one last year. The Tattersalls October Â£25,000 Book 1 Bonus is only for horses bought at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, that takes place from October 3 - 5.
