The Hawkesbury Crown is a race for fillies & mares only that can be a bit of a minefield for punters, although the set weights & penalties conditions tends to favour the better performed mares engaged.
A race such as the Gr2 Sapphire Stakes, on the second day of 'The Championships' at Randwick in Sydney, provides a good lead up race to the Hawkesbury Crown, while the upcoming Gr3 Dark Jewel Classic at Scone may be on the agenda for fillies & mares contesting this event.
Aerobatics (2014) finished runner-up in the Dark Jewel Classic following success in this race, with Daysie Doom (2nd in 2016) and Seaside (6th in 2014) going on to win the Dark Jewel Classic after running second & sixth respectively in this race.
Any capable fillies or mares may head to Queensland for the Brisbane winter racing carnival and Peace Force (2nd in 2015) took out the Gr3 Lady Of The Turf Stakes after a good second in the Hawkesbury Crown.
Pecans (2018) resumed from a spell to win this race in stylish fashion and recent Hawkesbury Crown winners include Shillelagh (2017) and Nancy (2016).
Hawkesbury race track has a circumference of 2070m and there is a slight rise from the home turn to the winning post. The track surface is turf and the straight length is 380m and horses race in a clockwise direction.
