The Derby mailing list is a subscription email list devoted to the lively discussion of thoroughbred horse racing. It has been in existence since 1992. Typical topics include handicapping, breeding, and the spread of racing information. The list currently has over 1000 subscribers plus many who read online, and can average as many as 40 messages a day during peak seasons.

You can read the Derby List without being a member at the Last 200 Messages page.

Subscribe or Unsubscribe

To subscribe or unsubscribe, visit the signup web page. You can choose whether to receive List postings in Digest or real time when you sign up. With digest mode, you receive one Email message in the standard digest format daily unless the traffic level is high. The digest is also delivered whenever the message volume reaches 50K. In busy times of the year you may receive more than one a day, but usually it will be about one a day.

Reflected mode sends out each message separately as it arrives at the Derby list. The majority of those on the list receive the digest format. By default, all subscription requests are started in this mode, but you can later change over to reflected mode if you think you can keep up with the traffic. Some online services are not up to handling the heavy message volume reflected mode can generate at times.

All subscribes must be approved manually to prevent spammers from joining, so don't expect immediate results.

You can also unsubscribe from here. You will need the password that was sent to you when you first joined the List.
