The Group 3 Casino Cup on the circle track is much sought after in the region with both locals and border hoppers chasing the cash and the prestige.

In 2017 it was Terra Torra taking out the Cup then the following year the Ryan Newstead-trained sprinter narrowly missed going back to back, when second to Darren Russell’s Fab Fit.

In 2019, having recently won the Lismore Cup, the Terry Jordan-trained Fernando Blaster was chasing the Northern Rivers’ double.

After breaking the track record at Casino in their Cup heats, running 27.08s, in the final there was more history for Fernando Blaster as he stopped the clock at 26.91s, the first dog to ever break the 27 second mark for the 484m at Casino.
