Since we started publishing the RacingFormBook racecards, we have received a number of requests to provide them in a data format. As such, we now create each meeting from United Kingdom and Ireland as a Daily Racecard CSV File. The aim is to make the CSV Racecards available the afternoon before racing takes place. For instance 99.9% of the time Saturdays download will be available on Friday and so for all days.
With our racing results data files we have two formats in which the data is available for download. The Duo, which is in fact two files, or the Single File Format. It was decided by consensus that we would adopt just the one file format to hold all the information.
The data that is contained in each Daily Racecard CSV File, is taken directly from the published webpages for each meeting.
Here is the details of the raceard CSV Files. We concentrate on this first image. The columns of data for each horse are the race conditions.
Now the second half of the file, which covers complete details for the runners.
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
While that was a brief run through of the content by columns for the Daily Racecard CSV File. There is a lot more information about the RacingFormBook racecards themselves which we publish each day.

There are not many places where you can obtain the days horse racing cards in a CSV format, so we hope that in providing them we can assist those looking for this information.
