About Etak Thoroughbreds

Etak Thoroughbreds was established by Katherine Nivison, with its main aim to supply tough, sound thoroughbreds that are bred to both win and also be commercial for the sales ring.

Katherine has grown up in a family renowned throughout the thoroughbred industry. The Nivison's have had a great impact on breeding and racing with victorious horses such as Tar Girl, At Sea, Income Tax etc. They were also instrumental in administration in NSW Country Racing.

But successful breeding and racing didn't just come from Katherine's father's side; her mother's family also raced and bred champion racehorses, including Baguette, Whisked, Vionnet. Her mother, Jill, bred Inspired - Winner of the 1984 Slipper - and in recent years Jill has enjoyed success with Tie the Knot, Spinning Hill and Fashion News who she bred and races in partnership with her brother.

One of Etak Thoroughbreds recent successes was to breed the 2010 Golden Slipper runner, Lohan. This filly was bred from one of the old Nivison racing bloodlines, combined with Kate's improvements to the pedigree. This achievement came from her first year of serious breeding.

Thoroughbred horse breeding and sales

Etak Thoroughbreds has a small, but flourishing, band of mares. These include the likes of Inclination, dam of Lohan and Shahzadi who is from a full sister to At Sea.

Etak Thoroughbreds also sells throughout the year in both the weanling and yearling markets. Katherine had a delightful success at the 2010 Inglis Easter sale with the Fastnet Rock ex New Style filly selling for $120,000. In 2011, Etak Thoroughbreds will be selling their yearlings and weanlings with Shadwell Farm and Sefton Park, both of which have had great success in the past.

Etak Thoroughbreds are determined to deliver resilient, sound racehorses that win races for years to come. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Etak Thoroughbred experience please see the stock lists for a complete list of mares, racehorses, weanlings and foals.
