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.
