If you can't find what you want here and want to make your own search, there are of course the major internet search engines and indices (Alta Vista, Google, HotBot, InfoSeek, Yahoo, etc), but even better there are a number of search engines on the web devoted specifically to horse racing which are collected below. This page is designed to help you find entries/results, pedigrees, news, or information on a specific horse. If you would like some tips and additional links for finding very specific information, check my Finding Horses on the Net page.
Horse-Races.Net is my new racing site which will be my ultimate home online. You can search what I have set up in this location here:
There are still 4000 or so racing links on my About.com site, so you might want to do a quick search to be sure you haven't missed what you wanted there. This form will let you enter keywords for searching every page on my site.
HayNet is a general horse links site but has a horse racing section. You can search their collection with this form:
The Del Mar Pedigree Query is a very nice and huge database of pedigrees that was based on Albin Warth's old pedigree page. This one even allows you to input a new pedigree if your horse isn't in the database yet plus you can bring up pedigree's of multiple horses by separating horse names with commas.
The Blood Horse has a 2+ week archive of news stories that is searchable. Just type in the search term and click submit to take a look.
The Daily Racing Form offers many racing related articles on it's site and maintains an archive of part stories. If you're looking for information about old or new racing stories, this is a great place to look. You may have to sign up for a free userid to access some features and some stories require a paid membership. Enter values for Beginning date and Ending date, in the form MM/DD/YYYY, followed by optional search words or phrases, then press Submit.
Thoroughbred Times also offers a search function on their site now. This form may not work from here, so if you get a "Search Again" page, just enter your search term again and then it will work.
The New Index is a collection
of news from all over the web. While the service isn't dedicated to racing, a lot of racing related news articles can be found here.
The Derby List is a mailing list dedicated to racing with some very knowledgable posters. If you're interested in racing, the Derby Mailing list is a must. You can read online here (archives go back to February 1999) or search for a specific topic below.
Google Groups is a web based newsgroup reader for accessing the Usenet. There are thousands of newsgroups there including some devoted just to horse racing. This form will let you search them all.
