The Dark Jewel Classic is a Group 3 race open to fillies and mares under quality handicap conditions. Raced over 1400 metres, the race attracts both talented sprinters and experienced mile runners. Held at Scone Racecourse each year in May, the Dark Jewel Classic is the feature event of the day. The Scone Cup is held the Friday before it, making up the exciting two day Scone Cup Carnival.

Also on the race card are the Listed Luskin Star Stakes (1300m), Woodlands Stakes (1100m), Denise’s Joy Stakes (1100m), and Ortensia Stakes (1100m).

Horses who contest the Dark Jewel Classic often come via other New South Wales events including the Group 3 Hawkesbury Crown (1300m) and may head to Queensland next up for a shot at the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival races.

The 2017 Dark Jewel Classic ran on Saturday May 13, 2017.

2017 Dark Jewel Classic Nominations

The 2017 Dark Jewel Classic nominations close the Monday of race week and will be available below as soon as announced.

The Dark Jewel Classic 2017 nominations attracted a bumper 25 early entries including the Chris Waller-trained Hawkesbury Crown winner Shillelagh out to do the double and Ron Quinton’s runner-up in the same key lead-up race Daysee Doom.

Dark Jewel Classic History

The Dark Jewel Classic was inaugurated in 1996 and upgraded to Listed status only three years later in 1999. Following the 2013 running of the race, when Arctic Flight seized victory, the Dark Jewel Classic was upgraded to Group 3. It has only grown in prestige since then, as more renowned trainers enter their horses pursuing the very decent $200,000 purse and a coveted black type victory. Local trainers have slowly been pushed out as major stables send their horses from Sydney and elsewhere. The modern Dark Jewel Classic is nothing like it’s 1999 ancestor when Little Pattie won for Frances Smith out of Wyong. People such as Gai Waterhouse and Anthony Cummings now count themselves among the winning trainers of the race.

The Dark Jewel Classic falls on the second day of the two day Scone Carnival, adding to one of the most anticipated country meets in NSW.
