At Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory, Aquis Farm's Gr1-winning stallion Benfica (Lonhro-Hut, by Danehill) sired his first stakes winner when 3YO bay gelding Eusebio (Benfica-Talent Time, by Quest for Fame) scored by 2 lengths for trainer John O'Shea in the $130,000 Listed Canberra Guineas (1400m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO gelding Ebenos (I Am Invincible-Pure Ebony, by Genuine) & 3YO colt and Godolphin stable-mate Bryneich (Lonhro-Bernicia, by Elusive Quality). The talented Eusebio is starting to build an impressive record with 3 wins and 2 placings from 5 starts for $131,150 earnings. A homebred for Darley and Godolphin, Eusebio is a half-brother to Gr2 Pago Pago Stakes winner Deferential and hails from the family of Gr2 Silver Shadow Stakes winner Katima.
