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.

2018 Winner: Siren's Fury

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 Gr3 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.

Siren's Fury (2018) took out a BM85 race over 1300m at Hawkesbury before scoring a stylish victory in this event and recent Dark Jewel Classic winners include Daysee Doom (2017) and Danish Twist (2016).
