Dark Jewel Classic Field

The Dark Jewel Classic field is usually comprised of solid local mares and fillies with some experience already in regional sprints. Raced over 1400m, the Dark Jewel Classic field attracts proven sprinters from Scone and stables in surrounding areas. In recent years, the number of non-local horses making up the Dark Jewel Classic field has increased. Over the last 10-15 years the Dark Jewel Classic field has slowly grown in prestige. Following the 2013 running, the race was upgraded to Group 3, so no doubt the Dark Jewel Classic field will continue to increase in esteem.
