The publications of D. Dec^ev (also spelt Dechev/Detschev) are still standard reference, esp. _Die thrakishen Sprachreste_ (Vienna, 1957). Vladimir Georgiev contributed significantly to the field, though some of his work is so idiosyncratic (IMO) that only an experienced linguist can tell the wheat from the chaff. Here's a good-quality sample:
Ivan Duridanov's _The Language of the Thracians_ (_Ezik&t na trakite_/_Die Sprache der Thraker_) is available in an abridged online version:
Individual etymologies are discussed in the rather irregularly appearing _Balkansko ezikoznanie_/_Linguistique balkanique_, published in Sofia.
The satem character of Thracian is supported by some solid etymologies like esb- 'horse' (< *ek^wo-) or diza 'fortress' (< *dig^H-ah2).
