We cover each meeting from United Kingdom and Ireland to create a Daily Racecard CSV File. The aim is to make the CSV Racecards available at the 48 hour stage before racing takes place whenever possible. We also amend this the day before with any late changes. This is definitely released each day before the next days racing takes place. Plus we have added the Racecard-CSV file. This contains all the data in one file and includes the unique Class Ratings as published on the website.
If you look at our racing results data files, you will see we have two formats in which they are available for download. The Duo, which is in fact two files, then the Single File Format style. We are now producing the racecard information in a similar way to the Duo. These are the Raw data files we use to publish our own racecards on the website.
Then for the 24 hour update we include the SFF style. This is a Single File Format which has as it suggest, all the information in one file. Not only that but we also include our fantastic Class Ratings which are published at this 24 hour – in advance of racing stage.
The data that is contained in each Daily Racecard CSV file covers all the most pertinent information around each race and is detailed below. Many of our customers find the CSV files an invaluable source as this was something they found time consuming in trying to create themselves. This leaves them free to concentrate in putting the information to their specific requirements.
Here are the details contained in the racecard CSV Files. Firstly the screenshot below is from the races file. It shows columns of data for the race details.
Now the second of the files known as Horses, which covers complete details for the runners in each of the days races. We provide this file in CSV and also as an XLXS in an additional file. Some column headers are legacy ones. i.e. Race Time when we first generated the data this column contained not only the course name, but also the time of the race. We decided to omit the time part eventually. Similarly the AgeWt contained the age as part of this field. In the end we opted to put the Age in its own separate column.
With the 24 hour download we include all the information above as one file. Downloading the Sample will make this easy to see exactly what you get. Mainly the Class Rating for each horse as you would see on our website racecards. Plus the Odds data and we also have the horses weight to be carried in total pounds.
Please download a copy of the sample day we use as an example by clicking the button below. With Excel please be aware that Excel is not very good at importing CSV as it attempts to correct some columns to Date format.
A CSV needs importing into a spreadsheet. See this guide https://www.racingformbook.co.uk/sample/Importing_CSV_to_Excel.pdf
To help with the above issue, we include the horses file as an xlsx also. The 3 files are downloaded in a zip file combined.
These Daily Racecard CSV Files are available for and on each days racing.
We provide the files to our Subscribers as one of the services that they receive. To become a Subscriber or register as a member for Free then Click Membership Options.
