The Hawkesbury Crown is a Group 3 race for fillies and mares held on Hawkesbury Gold Cup Day in late April during the autumn.

The event is run over 1300m at set weights plus penalties and offers $175,000 in total prize money. It is one of three Group 3 status races on the card along with the Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) and the Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) for three-year-olds. In 2020 the Hawkesbury Crown took place at Rosehill offering a reduced $140,000 in prize money due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

There is a host of lead-up races held earlier in the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival for fillies and mares to come into the Hawkesbury Crown field via including the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m) at Randwick a fortnight before. Following the race many mares come back during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival for a shot at a race such the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m).

The other key follow-up for horses out of the Hawkesbury Crown is the Group 3 Dark Jewel Classic (1400m) at Scone a fortnight later and in 2016 Press Report ran third in both events.

The Hawkesbury Crown 2020 ran on Saturday Saturday April 25, 2020 at Rosehill Gardens and was won by the Chris Waller-trained Sweet Scandal in an upset.

Hawkesbury Crown History

The Hawkesbury Crown is one of the youngest races in New South Wales having first been run in 2010 and won by Serenissima. Since then Aerobatics (2013-14) is the only dual winner and Solicit (2015) is the most well-known of the Hawkesbury Darley Crown winners.

It started out as a Listed race before gaining Group 3 status in 2014. For one year in 2015 it and the other Hawkesbury Gold Cup Day races were held at Rosehill Racecourse. The event has been previously known as the Darley Crown and Godolphin Crown for sponsorship purposes.

The 2020 Hawkesbury Crown took place at Rosehill Gardens due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions to racing.
