Randwick 2016 City Tattersalls Club Day Scratchings

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 fine in Sydney today with no chance of rain meaning the current Good (3) Randwick track rating for City Tattersalls Club…

The 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 and takes place a week after the Randwick track hosts the richest turf race in the world – the $10 million The Everest.

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 2017 The Nivison ran on Saturday October 21, 2017 the same day Melbourne hosted Caulfield Cup Day.

2017 The Nivison Tips

  • 1st: #3 Daysee Doom
  • 2nd: #6 Diddums
  • 3rd: #2 Dixie Blossoms

Think the value in The Nivison 2017 Tips lies in Ron Quinton’s ultra-consistent DAYSEE DOOM ($7) in barrier five coming off a string of excellent runs. This Domesday five-year-old is just so consistent and adaptable. She won the Group 2 Golden Pendant (1400m) two back before the brave second to stablemate Dixie Blossoms over the mile in the Randwick Group 3 Angst Stakes. Her record shows plenty of form winning when dropped back in distance and think that will hold up again here. DIDDUMS ($3.10) is the firming favourite drawn a treat in barrier four with genuine claims on the back of a fresh Rosehill win over 1100m by over two lengths in late September. Group 3 Randwick winner and has excellent record over this distance (4-2-2-0). Can’t leave out Quinton’s other runner DIXIE BLOSSOMS ($6) after she reversed the Golden Pendant quinella on the stablemate winning the Angst Stakes. She might find the 1400m a little sharp, but gets her chance.

2017 The Nivison Nominations

The official The Nivison 2017 Nominations are taken by Racing NSW on the Monday of race week and the full list of early entries will be detailed below as soon as released.

The 2017 The Nivison Nominations attracted 21 hopeful mares led by the Ron Quinton-trained duo of Dixie Blossoms and Daysee Doom who ran one-two respectively in the Group 3 Angst Stakes (1600m) at the track / distance last start after also running the quinella but in reverse order in the Group 2 Golden Pendant (1400m) earlier this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

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.
