Daily Racing Form online archive (USA)

"With the help of the library staff at the University of Kentucky, 132,000 pages of the Daily Racing Form - some 531,000 articles - have been digitized and posted online. The articles date from the 1890s, when the paper was founded, up through the 1990s. The selection represents each decade's racing highlights, including Triple Crown coverage and reports on the careers of Seabiscuit, Secretariat, and the other great horses of the past hundred years. The Daily Racing Form archive is a recent addition to the Kentuckiana Digital Library, a continuing project that provides access to digital archives of material particular to the state"
