The Dark Jewel Classic is a Group 3 quality handicap for fillies & mares that takes place each May at Scone Racecourse in Scone, New South Wales. The race is run over a distance of 1400 metres and worth $200,000 in prize money. The 2019 Dark Jewel Classic was won by Con Te Partiro from Savatiano with Organza third.
The provincial town of Scone is located in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, around 270 kilometres north of Sydney, and is widely recognised as the horse capital of Australia.

The Dark Jewel Classic is a race for fillies & mares only that generally attracts a capacity field of more than handy females in various stages of their campaigns, making it a tough job for punters trying to find the winner.
Those fillies & mares down in the weights and on the improve are ones to watch, especially if they can creep in under the handicapper's guard.
Hawkesbury's Group 3 Hawkesbury Crown is the ideal lead-up race to the Dark Jewel Classic. Of late, smart galloper Aerobatics (2nd in 2014) won the Hawkesbury Crown before finishing runner-up in this race. Daysie Doom (2016) and Seaside (2014) finished second & sixth respectively in the Hawkesbury Crown before tasting success here.
Con Te Partiro (2019) resumed from a spell to win this event in stylish fashion for the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott stable.
Recent Dark Jewel Classic winners include Siren's Fury (2018) and Daysee Doom (2017).
