A Group I winning two-year-old by charismatic champion racehorse and sire Lonhro, Benfica defeated subsequent Group I winning sprinter Hot Snitzel to win the Group I BRC TJ Smith Stakes 1600m at Eagle Farm.

From the family of Group I winners Neroli and Riverina Charm, Darley homebred Benfica is one of only two Group I winning juveniles sired by Lonhro, the other being Golden Slipper winner Pierro.

His first crop are two-year-olds of 2015/2016 and his first winner from a small number of runners, Barbass, took out a lucrative Inglis bonus race, so the future looks bright for Benfica.
