Racing Trophies on Display

Three horseracing trophies from 1934 will be on exhibit at the museum in time for our Canada Day Open House.

The trophies were won by Mr. Bert Grieve and his horse American Motors at events in Nanaimo’s Old Home Week celebrations.

The trophies haven’t all been together for many years. But thanks to a thoughtful loan from family members, the trophies, and the interesting story behind them, are together again to share with the community.
