    Hi –
    I’m about to embark on some statistical work with a mathemitician and am looking for data sets. I thought it worth putting out a shout on here before I start compiling my own in case anyone has anything already compiled.

    Let me know by PM if you can help. In return I’ll happily share findings, etc.

    I’m looking for data sets containing from which I could glean (for each race) this type of data (not comprehensive but we’ll work with what we’ve got)

    Race data

    Result (inc starting prices and finishing positions including distances)
    Type of race (e.g. handicap, claimer, age group, etc, etc)
    Course
    Distance
    Time
    Value

    Horse data

    Days since last ran (for each horse)
    Horse rating(s) going into race
    Horse form figs going into race
    Previous course runs (ratings)
    Previous distance runs (ratings)
    Weights carried previous runs

    That type of thing, anyone?

    Don’t care about jockey, don’t really need trainer.

    You can get all of that from racingsense.com

    You’ll have to get someone to write queries in SQL to extract it, but it shouldn’t be too difficult.

    Looking for as much data pertaining to each horse in every race as I can get.
