Strong Nominations For Darley Scone Cup Carnival

By Julieanne Horsman

A staggering 425 nominations have been received for this week’s prestigious two-day Darley Scone Cup Carnival.

$2million in prizemoney is on offer across sixteen races, including the Group 3 Dark Jewel Classic and five Listed races.

“The nominations for this year’s carnival are exceptional,” Scone Race Club CEO Heath Courtney said. “We are very happy with the quality of interest, in particular for the Scone Cup.”

Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott’s Listed Hawkesbury Gold Cup winner Fabrizio will line up in the Scone Cup along with last year’s winner Pajaro and runner-up Amovatio.

The Waterhouse/Bott stable has eight horses nominated, Chris Waller has 28 nominations including a couple of double ups, and former locals Peter and Paul Snowden have 14 horses nominated.

“It’s wonderful to have strong interest from Sydney’s leading stables,” Mr Courtney said.

The Scone track hasn’t been raced on since 3rd April and has allowed curators to get it in top shape.

“Bernie Evans and his team have done a fantastic job with the track,” Mr Courtney said. “The racetrack looks a picture and the surface is at its best.”

Off the track, most marquee and function packages are almost at capacity and there is a little accommodation left in Scone this Friday and Saturday.

The Fashions On The Field competition is expected to draw contestants from all over NSW and beyond with an overseas holiday among the generous prizes.

“I’d like to thank Darley, Inglis and all other sponsors for their support,” Mr Courtney said. “Without them the Scone Cup Carnival wouldn’t be the blue ribbon event it is today.”
