Signpost Goldfields Racing Museum

The Kalgoorlie Boulder Racing Club has, after a number of years, found a home for the many items of historical value previously housed in the old Trainers' rooms. Originally in 1993, following Signpost's historic Triple Crown win, owners David Reed, Keith Biggs, Dick Austin and John Sarre donated $10,000 towards the creation of a racing museum. The western end of the 'Old Tote' building has now been restored and renovated to create a wonderful, secure area for the display of these unique historical items.

Description

Stroll around the Museum and each display cabinet reaches back in time, whether it is the great collection of old race books, enclosure passes, licenses and entrance tickets from the early 1900s, the various medical and first aid implements used in those early times or the meticulously kept, hand written Committee Minutes, accounting ledgers, Clerk of Scales registers and many other treasures. The walls are also lined with magnificent photographs of the champions and crowds of that early Goldfields period.
