I am writing a data mining applications for horse racing and was wondering where i would find the best available data for UK horse racing which i could download and add to my database.
I currently use timeform however their site is very slow and has had a few changes over the last 2-3 months which have caused my applicaiton some minor hiccups.
Preferably I would like an XML feed or something of that nature so i don't have to screen scrape however if that is not available in the UK then i will just have to work with whats available.
Any help would be appreciated.
http://www.horseracebase.com/ looks like it might have most of the info i require.
Surely all these places get there data from somewhere? I would love to have access to the source as i would imagine it would not change format very regularly.
In Australia all racing data is supplied by RISA which is - Racing Information Services Australia. Is there an equivalent for the UK and Irish racing?
Also Millionaire Fund, I had a look at that application however it looks like Betfair have stopped using JSON on their site which makes that tool effectivley usless. Plus the timeform site is wayyyy to slow.
