Smartform Racing Database

The Smartform Racing Database is a fully programmable horseracing form database which runs on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux systems.  Daily racecards and historic results for UK and Irish racing are updated automatically before racing each day.  All the data elements are described in the tables and field layout.

The database can be used to research, program and automate any task you can think of that requires horseracing data, such as:

  • Creating winning methods and systems
  • Backtesting for profitability
  • Creating speed and handicap ratings
  • Creating your own custom racecards - see example from yesterday's racing

Combined with automatic betting techniques and Smartform's Betfair ID lookup tables, the Smartform Racing Database also gives you all you need to create fully automated betting robots for horseracing.

What our customers say

  • "I personally use the Smartform database for my own analysis.  Betwise provides an excellent service with the latest UK and IRE data which is updated every day. Along with this it is linked to Betfair ID's to enable direct programming from the database for completely customisable betting bots. If you have any queries the customer service is second to none. If you are looking for easy to use, reliable data then I cannot recommend them highly enough." Michael Wilding,
  • "Downloaded your historic smartform DB last night and already found a couple of angles that could raise my yearly return by over 100 pts so must say it was a worthwhile purchase!" RM
  • "The last time I tried to setup a Horse Racing database I had nothing better than a hand-held scanner and the Results pages of the Sporting life Weekender.  Now I have all the data I need appearing automatically on my computer each night, ready for analysis first thing in the morning.  This excellent service is backed up by brilliant support.  How refreshing  that any email queries are replied to rapidly and comprehensively on an individual basis." Simon E.
  • "Besides using Smartform for research I have experimented with automating transactions on the exchanges... It has been great fun & I am enjoying myself immensely". Sandy S.

15 years’ historic data for research and analysis

The Smartform Racing Database comes with 15 years’ horseracing results data (from Jan 1 2003) for all UK and Irish horse races, under both Flat and NH codes. All the data is licenced from original sources for the personal use of Betwise members.

On subscribing, ten years’ worth of full racing results, (and the last 4 years' daily racecards from our updates service), containing all UK and Irish racing, are within the Form download and available for use in MySQL.   Full documentation and support for setting up the database is included within each subscription.

Daily results and racecards

The update service contains the day’s full results for horseracing in the UK and Ireland under both National Hunt and Flat codes, as well as final racecards (available from 7.30 pm every evening) for the next day’s racing. The results update builds automatically on the existing database and ensures the SmartForm database is always current for the next day’s racing.

The updates service enables you to run selection systems and ratings models against daily data, to produce reports or for backing, laying and betting automation.
