Randwick 2016 City Tattersalls Club Day Scratchings

The major racing action today, Saturday October 15, may be Caulfield Cup Day in Melbourne but there’s still a bumper Black-Type race card at Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse this afternoon.

It is cloudy but ...

The 2016 The Nivison is a Group 3 sprint hosted by the City Tattersalls Club at Royal Randwick during the end of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

Run under set weights plus penalties conditions, the Nivison is restricted to mares aged four years and older. It is raced over 1200m and offers $150,000 in total prize money.

The Nivison is the feature event on its day, sharing the race program with a number of Listed support races.

Because The Nivison is a set weights plus penalties event, the more talented runners are given an opportunity to get over the higher weighted mares.

The Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) and the Group 3 Golden Pendant (1400m) can act as good lead up races. Alternatively, the Group 3 Tibbie Stakes (1400m) at Newcastle might be worth keeping an eye on.

The 2016 The Nivison will be run on October 15th, 2016.

2016 The Nivison Field

The Nivison field draws mares largely from local stables, although often you’ll see some Queensland and Victorian horses running. It is also not unusual for a foreign horse or two to target the Nivison field. The type of mare that targets The Nivison is usually a fairly handy mare, with fairly decent black-type experience.

The 2016 The Nivison field and barrier draw was released on Wednesday October 12 and features 14 mares including the John O’Shea-trained Tibbie Stakes runner-up in Newcastle last start Fitou.

The Nivison History

The Nivison was inaugurated in 1994 as the Tarien Quality Handicap. It was originally named in honour of renowned mare Tarien, who took out the Warwick Stakes twice and also the 1953 George Main Stakes and Craven Plate. The Nivison received its current name in 1997.

In 2011, the City Tattersalls Club rescheduled their meeting to mid October. Prior to this, the Nivison was held during September.

Initially a non black type event, the Nivison was upgraded to Listed status in 1997. In 2013 it became a Group 3 race and has maintained that status since then.

The Nivison has always been held at Royal Randwick, and has always been held over 1200m. The Nivison was not held in 2007 due to the equine influenza.

Notable The Nivison winners include Aunty Mary (1994), Razor Blade (1998), Our Sweet Moss (2005) and Madame Pedrille (2009). The Nivison results and winning times since 2000 are provided below.
