The Racing Post boasts a huge database on horse racing and is best accessed from the Search facility at the top left of the Home Page. You can search for information concerning horses, trainers, jockeys, owners, courses, stallions, dams and greyhounds. To search names of people enter the surname and results will include firstnames.
The majority of visitors will be interested in accessing the racecards to study the day’s races and the form of the runners. The cards for greyhounds show all meetings for the day with basic form for all the dogs.
The horse Racecards provide information in three formats –
Races – all information concerning the race
Runners Index – list of all runners for all races in alphabetical order
Stable Tours database – information on horses obtained by reporters from the Stable Tours series of articles on trainers published in October and November.
Under the course name for a meeting there are tabs containing data for: Meeting Info (entrance fee etc), Course Map, Statistics (jockeys, trainers, owners), Favourites.
You can view all races for a meeting on one page or view each race separately. To view the racecard you can choose between the standard card giving full information or the at-a-glance card with more concise details.
The Results Service is fast and gives results either by meeting or by runners. Comments in running are supplied for each horse and an overall analysis of the running of the race is also supplied.
It is possible to add your own rating for the runners which you can then refer back to at a later date. There is also the option to view a video replay of the race (Cost is 20p if your membership does not cover it)
