The Group 3 2017 The Nivison is a 1200m sprint held at Royal Randwick Racecourse during October.

Run under set weights plus penalties conditions, The Nivison is open to mares aged four years and older. Paying $125,000, The Nivison is a decent target for handy mares who haven’t gone south to Victoria or to the spelling paddock before summer.

Held towards the very tail end of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, The Nivison is hosted by the City Tattersalls Club and shares the race program with three listed races. These are the Gothic Stakes (1400m), the Alinghi Stakes (1100m) and the Ethereal Stakes (2000m).

There are a few good lead up races in the area. The Group 3 Golden Pendant (1400m) used to be a fairly good guide as the Research Stakes but now tends to attract a fairly classy field. The Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) and the Group 3 Tibbie Stakes can also be good guides.

Inaugurated in 1994 as the Tarien Quality Handicap, The Nivison was originally named after Tarien, a champion mare who won the 1953 George Main Stakes (among other races). In 1997, the race was renamed to its current title.

Prior to 2011, The Nivison was held during September. It was upgraded to listed status fairly quickly following establishment in 1997. In 2013 The Nivison was upgraded to group 3.

There was no 2007 The Nivison because of equine influenza. Notable The Nivison winners include Amber (1996), Spinning Hill (2000), Besame Mucho (2004) and Diamond Earth (2013).

2017 The Nivison Field

The Nivison field is usually comprised of a fairly diverse range of mares. Horses who have previously won a few group events might line up against those that have only had a few black type starts. As a general rule, it pays to do your homework on The Nivison field prior to punting, as you never know which horse might just step up to the plate.

The 2017 The Nivison field will be published below.
