N.Z. Racing Museum

Recommended Posts

I believe Cambridge Stud are building one on their new state of the art property. 

Not sure it's a national museum or just Cambridge Stud related...probably the latter.

We are sure in need of a National Museum...however the way things are going we could all end up in there very soon! :(

What happened to old Carbine who used to reside at Ellerslie ???

Wendy Pye tried to get a racing museum off the ground but got little support from memory?
