With all the excitement about the Kentucky Derby, we had some people stop by to see if we had anything relating to thoroughbred racing in Delaware. They loved looking at all the old photographs from Delaware Park. They reviewed state reports, administrative files from the Department of Agriculture on the Thoroughbred Racing Commission and scrapbooks and newspaper clippings. They got a list of commission members and even looked at legislation relating to horse racing. They were so amazed at the early apprentice indentures for harness making and trimming.
