  • 3rd: #3 Order Again



The Scone Cup is one of the biggest events in NSW country racing. Anticipated by thousands of local racing fans, the black-type mile showdown takes place on a Friday in mid-May as the feature of the Scone Cup Carnival.

Contested over 1600m, the Listed feature offers an increased $200,000 in prize money as of 2021 and is run under quality handicap conditions. The key lead-up into the Scone Cup field is the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) run over the same distance a fortnight earlier. The Hawkesbury Cup – Scone Cup double is popular one with the punters each autumn and the best out of the latter may continue onto Queensland for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

Scone Cup Day now also features a class field of fillies & mares facing off in the Group 3 Dark Jewel Classic (1400m), which previously ran the Saturday after.

The 2021 Scone Cup ran on Friday May 14, 2021 and was won by the consistent Laure Me In.
