Australian Jumps Racing Archives
The Australian Racing Museum and Hall of Fame is dedicated to telling the stories of thoroughbred racing in Australia and preserving the rich history of the "Sport of Kings".
As a not-for-profit, the Australian Racing Museum Collection contains more than 30,000 objects, many of which showcase the rich history of jumps racing in Australia. From the everyday, to the extraordinary; the tools of a working stable, to Crisp's racing plates or the silks worn by Mosstrooper's jockey, these items reveal the stories of an industry that is far more than the “Sport of Kings”. They document the world of thoroughbred horse racing both on and off the track and demonstrate its significant place in Australia’s cultural and sporting heritage.
