Benfica Pinned For 2012 Caulfield Autumn Classic – Race Preview

January 30th, 2012

The Group 2 Caulfield Autumn Classic will take place at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday February 25, 2012.

The 2012 Caulfield Autumn Classic is open to three-year-old horses only and is worth $180,000 in prize money.

Run over a distance of 1,800 metres, the 2012 Caulfield Autumn Classic is run under set weight conditions.

The 2012 Caulfield Autumn Classic is run on Blue Diamond Stakes Day, and shares a program with the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes, Group 1 Futurity Stakes, Group 1 Oakleigh Plate, Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes, Group 2 St George Stakes, Group 3 Mannerism Stakes and Listed Victoria Gold Cup.

Peter Snowden’s Benfica is rumoured to be targeting the 2012 Caulfield Autumn Classic.

The three-year-old Lonhro colt has won three of his six race starts and earned more than $465,000 in prize money.

Benfica is no stranger to Group success, winning the Group 1 The TJ Smith at Eagle Farm Racecourse during last year’s Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

Melbourne stable representative Paul Snowden said Benfica was in top form.

”Benfica came down to Melbourne last week and he’s a lovely horse and one that we’ve all been looking forward to him coming back,” he said.
