YouTube has recordings of 2nd violin orchestral excerpts, though -- some of these might be dubious-quality audition recordings rather than ones useful for study purposes, though.

Second violin excerpts do sometimes appear on professional orchestra auditions for second violin positions though even those auditions tend to be heavily tilted towards the usual first violin excerpts. Magic Flute overture and the fugue from the second movement of Rachmaninoff Symphony #2 come immediately to mind.
