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.
