THE sun shone and it was a great day to be trackside at the Lismore Turf Club for its biggest day of the year, the Lismore Cup.
It was a half day public holiday in the city for the event, which was only open to people with pre-sold tickets.
Lismore Turf Club secretary manager Scott Jones said COVID-19 restrictions had changed some aspects of Cup day, but was positive the day would still be a success.
Punters were seated in tables of 10 and there was to be no mingling.
A maximum of 1200 tickets were on sale for the event.
