One of the true feature events in the Northern Rivers, the Group 2 Lismore Cup has been chased for many years by local trainers, those from across the State, and others crossing the Queensland border.

The 2019 edition saw a frustrating run in Group races end for the Terry Jordan-trained Fernando Blaster as he finally snared his first Group race victory and the $40,000 first prize.

Fernando Blaster had finished fourth in Group 1 Brisbane Cup in 2018, fourth in the Group 1 National Derby in Sydney in 2019, second in the 2019 Group 2 Maitland Gold Cup, and third in the Group 3 Ambrosoli at Wentworth Park during the 2019 Golden Easter Egg carnival. His time arrived at Lismore in 2019.
