The Ratings

The ratings come in a number of formats; each with a different view on things.

The first are the Detailed Ratings which are often between 100 and 170 pages in length and contain all the information that one needs for one of the meetings. If, for example, there are six meetings in a day then there would be six of these Detailed Rating documents. Each of these documents are in PDF format.

There is another document, the Summary Ratings which is a collection of the first pages of each of the races' ratings and are collated into one document. This document is good as a quick overview but it is recommended that one looks at the Detailed Ratings for any serious race analysis.

A description of the fields within this summary rating document can be found in the Summary Ratings Description.

Most of the data in the Detailed Ratings are presented in a CSV File which contains one row for each horse running that day which also has over three hundred columns of data. The CSV File is, for a number of people is their first and only stop as they pull the data from there into their own database or spreadsheet models.
