Horse Racing | Hawkesbury Crown

The Hawkesbury Crown, which is also known as the Darley Crown, is a Group 3 race held on Hawkesbury Cup Day, alongside the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup and Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas. This event is an Open Handicap restricted to fillies and mares over 1300m.

The Group 2 Sapphire Stakes is often a lead up race, while the Crown is also a good precursor to the Group 3 Dark Jewel Classic at Scone. Aerobatics went back-to-back in the Hawkesbury Crown (2013/14), while other notable winners were More Strawberries (2012) and Kanzan (2010).
