The only Group 1 staying race on the NSW greyhound racing calendar, the Association Cup has a lengthy and distinguished history dating back to 1965, and has been won by a number of icons of the industry.

Originally run at Harold Park, the race was moved to Wentworth Park in 1988, and in 2012 it became a part of the Golden Easter Egg carnival.

Among the winners of the time-honoured event are champions such as two-time winner Zoom Top (1968 and 1970), Ragsie (1972), Dottie Wilson (1975), Black Aztec (1981), Bold Trease (1987), and Miata (2012).

The John Finn-trained Veloce Nero took out the 2019 Association Cup upstaging the likes of her littermates Poco Dorado and Blue Moon Rising, and odds-on favourite Tornado Tears, which had broken the track record a week earlier in the Cup heats.
